Spider monkeys are probably the most frequent New global primate genera, starting from southern Mexico to Bolivia. even if they're universal in zoos, spider monkeys are generally very tricky to review within the wild, simply because they're fast paced, reside excessive within the cover and are mostly present in small subgroups that adjust in dimension and composition during the day. The earlier decade has visible a variety in examine being conducted in this genus and this publication is an assimilation of either released and formerly unpublished learn. it's a complete resource of data for educational researchers and graduate scholars drawn to primatology, evolutionary anthropology and behavioral ecology and covers issues resembling taxonomy, vitamin, sexuality and copy, and conservation.

Rosenberger, L. Halenar, S. B. Cooke et al. a major step forward. It is the Big Idea behind all manner of evolutionary hypotheses about the natural history of Ateles and the atelins. Cladistics, however, is only a piece of the puzzle. A broader, more penetrating question asks: How, ecologically, did Ateles evolve? The Rosenberger and Strier (1989) scenario, as mentioned, attempted to get at some of the answers by examining how and why anatomical and behavioral features evolved transformationally among atelines.

Orlosky (1973) provided useful descriptive statistics for canine length and breadth dimensions in A. geoffroyi and A. belzebuth, and concluded that metric sexual dimorphism was minimal but varied in its expression in the two.

Using multivariate analysis, they developed a combined measure of tooth diameters, which effectively showed that males were about 10% larger than females.
