James J. Moore

James J. Moore received his Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from Harvard University in 1985; his thesis work explored the connections among ecology, demography, and behavior in nonhuman primates (a mix of theory, literature review, and fieldwork on cooperation among male langur monkeys, Presbytis entellus, in Rajasthan, India).  He subsequently looked at that same nexus among ecology, demography and behavior in the context of the savanna-living chimpanzees of Ugalla, western Tanzania.  This research is geared towards increasing our understanding of Plio-Pleistocene hominins (and chimpanzee socioecology).

He is now retired and living near Arcata, California; he continues involvement with the Ugalla Primate Project but is no longer formally advising students.
