"Why lemurs literally make a stink about everything."Ever wondered why lemurs smell so strongly? Or why they always seem to be scent marking? Join Lydia Greene, a researcher at the Duke Lemur Center, to learn about the function behind all that olfaction. Lydia is an Associate in Research at Duke University and has been working at the DLC as a researcher and tour guide since 2007. In this episode of our 'Evenings with the Experts" series, Lydia will present on the various ways that lemurs communicate with each other using scents and the logistics involved in studying lemur olfactory signaling (the methods behind the mad scientists!).
