Digit ratio: finger length research in primates!

‘Digit ratio’ in non-human primates:
The major focuss in Emma Nelson’s ”digit ratio’ research in primates is:
|“Using digit ratios (2D:4D) to investigate social systems in anthropoids; implications for the study of the evolution of hominin sociality.”.
Variation in non-human primate 2D:4D is currently unknown. One of the aims of this project is to map differences in mean 2D:4D within and between non-human primates species.
