Relative growth of the limbs and trunk in sifakas: heterochronic, ecological, and functional considerations.
(Am J Phys Anthropol, 1993-12)
Limb, trunk, and body weight measurements were obtained for growth series of Milne-Edwards's diademed sifaka, Propithecus diadema edwardsi, and the golden-crowned sifaka, Propithecus tattersalli. Similar measures were obtained ...
When top-down becomes bottom up: behaviour of hyperdense howler monkeys (Alouatta seniculus) trapped on a 0.6 ha island.
(PLoS One, 2014)
Predators are a ubiquitous presence in most natural environments. Opportunities to contrast the behaviour of a species in the presence and absence of predators are thus rare. Here we report on the behaviour of howler monkey ...
Field methods for capture and measurement of three monkey species in Costa Rica.
(Folia Primatol (Basel), 1991)
A total of 54 free-ranging monkeys were captured and marked in Santa Rosa National Park, Costa Rica, during May 1985, and an additional 17 were captured during March 1986. The animals were darted using a blowpipe or a CO2 ...
Sexual selection and canine dimorphism in New World monkeys.
(Am J Phys Anthropol, 1988-11)
Social and ecological factors are important in shaping sexual dimorphism in Anthropoidea, but there is also a tendency for body-size dimorphism and canine dimorphism to increase with increased body size (Rensch's rule) (Rensch: ...
