Research Title: 
Specific-Mate Recognition Systems (SMRS) in strepsirhines

Derick N. Forbanka hails from the North West Region of Cameroon where he did his primary, secondary and high school education. He then studied Zoology in the University of Buea Cameroon where he obtained B.Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc. before moving to South Africa where he equally studied and obtained a M.Sc. in Zoology from Walter Sisulu University. Derick was employed by the Eastern Cape Department of Education as a Life Science and Physical Sciences educator for four years before he enrolled for PhD studies with the African Primates Initiative for Ecology and Speciation (APIES) group, University of Fort Hare under the supervision of Prof Masters and Dr Génin. His research project is based on the Specific-Mate Recognition Systems (SMRS) in strepsirhines (fork-marked lemurs of Madagascar and needle-clawed galagos of Africa). He is equally studying the population and habitat structure of these strepsirhines for effective conservation measures. His project is funded by Africa Earth Observatory Network (AEON).
