Congratulations to MA student Lilah Sciaky, who won the “best poster” award at the 2022 NEEP (Northeastern Evolutionary Primatology) meeting!

From Lilah:

I examined how social factors predicted age at first conception in 128 wild blue monkey (Cercopithecus mitis stuhlmanni) females in the Kakamega Forest, Kenya.

Females that experienced enhanced presence of novel males in the 30 days before first conception and those that had more older sisters in the group at first conception conceived at an older age. Females whose mothers were older at the time of their own birth and whose mothers were present in the group had their first conception at a younger age.
