  • species
  • Some (older) classifications list only two species in the genus Papio, this one and the hamadryas baboon. (wikipedia.org)
  • In those classifications, all other Papio species are considered subspecies of P. papio and the species is called the savanna baboon. (wikipedia.org)
  • other researchers have classified the species even farther distant from Papio. (wikipedia.org)
  • While Theropithecus gelada is the only living species of its genus, separate, larger species are known from the fossil record: T. brumpti, T. darti and T. oswaldi, formerly classified under genus Simopithecus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Previously, the closely related gelada (genus Theropithecus) and the two species (mandrill and drill) of genus Mandrillus were grouped in the same genus, and these Old World monkeys are still often referred to as baboons in everyday speech. (wikipedia.org)
  • Five species of Papio are commonly recognized, although there is some disagreement about whether they are really full species or subspecies. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, recent morphological and genetic studies of Papio show the hamadryas baboon to be more closely related to the northern baboon species (the Guinea and olive baboons) than to the southern species (the yellow and chacma baboons). (wikipedia.org)
  • It is one of two species assigned to the genus Mandrillus, along with the drill. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another genus of mangabeys, Cercocebus, was once thought to be very closely related, so much so that all the species were placed in one genus. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, it is now understood that Lophocebus species are more closely related to the baboons in genus Papio, while the Cercocebus species are more closely related to the mandrill. (wikipedia.org)
  • Papio can be divided into five species, as outlined by Groves (2001). (animaldiversity.org)
  • Some authorities continue to recognize only a single species, Papio hamadryas , which is composed of five subspecies corresponding to the species mentioned above. (animaldiversity.org)
  • A new species of monkey identified in Tanzania's highlands last year is an even more remarkable find than thought -- it is a new genus of animal, scientists said on Thursday. (blogspot.ca)
  • The new monkey, at first called the highland mangabey but now known as kipunji, is more closely related to baboons than to mangabey monkeys, but in fact deserves its own genus and species classification, the researchers reported in the journal Science. (blogspot.ca)
  • Humans, for instance, belong to the Mammalia class, the primate order, the hominid family, the genus Homo and the species sapiens -- Homo sapiens for short. (blogspot.ca)
  • Originally assigned to the genus Lophocebus, genetic and morphological tests showed that it is more closely related to the baboons (genus Papio) than to the other mangabeys in the genus Lophocebus, and that Lophocebus was diphyletic, meaning that species with differing genealogies have been mistakenly lumped together.

  • Unlike many baboon species, P. papio characteristically display the same color pelage on back, arms, cheeks and abdomen. (animaldiversity.org)
  • In other species of Papio , the youngest animals display a charateristic natal pelage, which differs from adult pelage in color and texture. (animaldiversity.org)
  • P. papio is the most poorly known of all the Papio species. (animaldiversity.org)
  • If such noncompetitive, polygynadrous mating is the rule in this species, P. papio would be an outlier within the genus. (animaldiversity.org)
