Résumé

The microcebe is a small primitive primate which appeared about 50 million years ago and lives on the island of Madagascar. Through observation of microcebes in captivity and in their natural habitat, the function of olfactory signals in sexual competition and the dynamics of wild populations can be described and explained.
