Howler monkey genetics study shows similarities to archaic gene flow between humans and Neanderthals
Marcella Baiz (U-M EEB Ph.D. 2019) published part of her dissertation investigating a primate hybrid zone to try to understand the genetic basis of reproductive isolation of two closely related species: the mantled howler monkey and the Mexican black howler monkey. A hybrid zone is a place where two species coexist and occasionally interbreed in a process called hybridization.
The paper was selected as the cover story and an Editor’s Choice.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, EEB needs your support.
