Kaplin Gave Talk in Paris on Chimpanzee Research

Beth Kaplin, core faculty member in AUNE’s Department of Environmental Studies, gave a talk at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, France, on October 9.

Kaplin’s talk, “Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) Seed Handling: the Link to Ecological Services in Tropical Forests,” discussed the importance of chimpanzees in the forest environment in Africa.
She was also a co-supervisor on the doctoral committee of Aisha Nyiramana, a Rwandan woman defending her PhD at the National Museum of Natural History.

Kaplin has been doing research in the Albertine Rift region of Africa, especially in Nyungwe National Park in Rwanda, where she has worked since 1990. She has received funding from the MacArthur Foundation for her work building an educational system for conservation biologists in the region, in collaboration with the National University of Rwanda.
