Dust accumulation in the canopy: a potential cause of dental microwear in primates.
(Am J Phys Anthropol, 1995-06)
Dental microwear researchers consider exogenous grit or dust to be an important cause of microscopic wear on primate teeth. No study to date has examined the accumulation of such abrasives on foods eaten by primates in the ...
Stable isotope ratios indicate diet and habitat use in New World monkeys.
(Am J Phys Anthropol, 1997-05)
This paper demonstrates the use of stable isotope ratios of carbon and nitrogen in animal tissue for indicating aspects of species behavioral strategy. We analyzed hair from individuals representing four species of New World ...
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 ...
Captivity humanizes the primate microbiome.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2018-03-01)
The primate gastrointestinal tract is home to trillions of bacteria, whose composition is associated with numerous metabolic, autoimmune, and infectious human diseases. Although there is increasing evidence that modern and ...
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 ...
