UTSA anthropologist honored for contributions researching primates in Africa
Date:12/11/2012

SAN ANTONIO, DEC. 10, 2012 Joanna Lambert, professor in the UTSA Department of Anthropology, has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for the outstanding contributions she has made to the field of primate feeding biology at evolutionary and ecological scales.

Lambert was one of 702 members worldwide selected for her scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. She will receive an official certificate and gold and blue rosette pin at a ceremony at the 2013 AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston on Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013.

"I am very honored to be recognized at the national level by my scientific peers. The AAAS represents the largest scientific scholarly organization in the world," said Lambert.

For more than 20 years, Lambert has conducted research focused on the evolutionary and community ecology of primates, primarily in Kibale National Park in Uganda. Her studies have found that chimpanzees and an array of monkey species contribute an extremely high percentage of the seed dispersal taking place in forests like Kibale and elsewhere in equatorial Africa.

"A very high percentage of ape and monkey diet is comprised of fruit, so they are eating and dispersing thousands of seeds a day throughout the forest," said Lambert. "They are undoubtedly amongst the most important agents of forest regeneration in Kibale National Park and elsewhere in Africa."

Additionally, Lambert has been recognized for her research looking at the impacts of climate shifts on primate feeding adaptations with a goal of shedding light on the evolution of human and primate diet.

Lambert's love for Africa developed at an early age. She was eight years old when she read a book that described how leopards consume prey by pulling it into the trees to avoid conflicts with other larger carnivores.
