We have an amazing Scientific Advisory Council at LCF! Meet Dr. Elwyn Simons: Dr. Elwyn L. Simons is Scientific Director of Duke University Primate Center. An expert in the biology and behavior of living and fossil primates, he has contributed substantially to our understanding of primate history.
Dr. Simons is especially interested in anthropoid origins, interpreting the radiation of Miocene-Pliocene apes, and the appearance of bipedalism and what it implies for the origin of Hominidae. Much of his recent research has dealt with the description, classification, behavior, reproduction and captive conservation of living prosimians, primarily lemurs.
