Herbert F. Standing[edit]

Do you know what Herbert F. Standing's nationality was? I'm tidying categories, and trying to get all the paleontologists into their respective nationality categories. Thanks! — Gorthian (talk) 16:10, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

If I remember correctly, I put absolutely everything I could find on the guy in the article. There may be more out there about it, but it will probably be very hard to find. Sorry that I can't help. – Maky « talk » 00:02, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
So it goes. Thanks anyway! — Gorthian (talk) 05:41, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

ruffed lemurs[edit]

Hello Maky, i'm a bit confused, because the description Nick Garbutt gives on the subspecies' habitat is also correct according to his map. I know that the subspecies of the b&w ruffed lemur is not recognized by all scientists, but this is very unusual. Is there some online source I can check? I'm working on lemur articles on the Dutch wikipedia and I don't want to copy mistakes... heinGlas z3.pngnlein'' 06:15, 16 July 2014 (UTC) (and sorry for my English)

There may be some information on the IUCN Red List for the species pertaining to the subspecies and their ranges. I did re-check Lemurs of Madagascar ("LoM"), and the description of its range is much more detailed than that given by Garbutt. I haven't heard many good things from lemur researchers about Garbutt's work, and given the names attached to LoM, I'm more inclined to trust it. The best places to get copies of LoM are here (for English) and here (for French). I hope this helps. – Maky « talk » 06:36, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll change it on the Dutch pages... heinGlas z3.pngnlein'' 07:14, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
