The aim of this quantity is to give a entire assessment of modern advances in primate box examine, ecology, and conservation biology in Mesoamerica. the general target of every contribution is to combine newly amassed box information with theoretical views drawn from evolutionary biology, socioecology, organic anthropology, and conservation to spot how our present wisdom of primate habit and ecology has moved past extra conventional methods. A corollary to this, and a big aim of the quantity is to spot nation-states and species for which we proceed to lack enough details, to strengthen motion plans for destiny study, and to spot components for fast conservation motion. regardless of many many years of primate study in Mesoamerica, a lot remains to be unknown about the simple ecology and behaviour of those species, demography, present distribution, and conservation prestige of neighborhood populations, and the effectiveness of conservation rules on primate survivorship. 4 significant components of analysis are the focal point of the amount: Evolutionary Biology and Biogeography; inhabitants Demography and Ecology; habit; and Conservation and administration regulations.

Example text

This was a live animal received by the Zoological Society of London from San Juan del Norte, Nicaragua. Night monkeys have never otherwise been recorded from Nicaragua, and Hershkovitz (1949) argued that the original description and color plate identify the animal as having come from Brazil. Allen (1910) simply said that the locality was unquestionably erroneous, a sentiment repeated by Elliot (1913). Hern´andez-Camacho and Cooper (1976) restricted both lemurinus (Colombian Andes, elevations from 1000 to 1500 m up to 3000 to 3200 m) and griseimembra (northern lowlands, Santa Marta mountains, west to R´ıo Sinu, ´ R´ıo San Jorge, lower R´ıo Cauca, and lowlands of middle and upper R´ıo Magdalena) to Colombia, while recognizing the form zonalis as the night monkey of northwestern Colombia (Choco) ´ and Panama.
