Testing parallel laser image scaling for remotely measuring body dimensions on mantled howling monkeys (Alouatta palliata).
(Am J Primatol, 2015-08)
Body size is a fundamental variable for many studies in primate biology. However, obtaining body dimensions of wild primates through live capture is difficult and costly, so developing an alternative inexpensive and non-invasive ...
Daily activity and light exposure levels for five species of lemurs at the duke lemur center
(American Journal of Physical Anthropology, 2014-01-01)
Light is the primary synchronizer of all biological rhythms, yet little is known about the role of the 24-hour luminous environment on nonhuman primate circadian patterns, making it difficult to understand the photic niche ...
Lemur diversity in Madagascar
(International Journal of Primatology, 2008-12-01)
A basic understanding of the taxonomy, diversity, and distributions of primates is essential for their conservation. This review of the status of the taxonomy of lemurs is based on a 5-d workshop entitled "Primate Taxonomy ...
Lemur redux: Something old, something new, and reader blue. Review of Lemur Social Systems and their Ecological Basis, edited by P.M. Kappeler, J.U. Ganzhorn, and Peter Jörg

Group takeover by a natal male howling monkey (Alouatta palliata) and associated disappearance and injuries of immatures
As part of a long-term study on howling monkey behavior and social dynamics, a known natal male was observed taking over his group from his putative sire. Due to the accidental death of one of the adult males, this natal ...
The impact of cropping on wild populations of Saguinus mystax and Saguinus fuscicollis in Peru
(American Journal of Primatology, 1984-01-01)
A transect census technique was used to estimate the population densities of Saguinus mystax and Saguinus fuscicollis at two sites in Peru. Cropping of these two species had occurred five years before the census at one site ...
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 ...
Chemical characterization of oligosaccharides in the milk of six species of New and Old World monkeys.
(Glycoconj J, 2010-10)
Human and great ape milks contain a diverse array of milk oligosaccharides, but little is known about the milk oligosaccharides of other primates, and how they differ among taxa. Neutral and acidic oligosaccharides were ...
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 ...
