• Primates
  • Qualitative and quantitative observations made in nonhuman primates suggest that, in some species, mothers encourage their infants' independent locomotion and that encouragement can be considered a form of instruction. (springer.com)
  • The second suborder, the Haplorhini, comprises the primates of the remaining three taxa, which exhibit predominantly diurnal habits (with the exception of tarsiers and one monkey species), enhanced vision and visual communication, and comparatively more continuous (less seasonal) sexual activity and reproduction. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Frugivory is most widely distributed: Most primates eat some fruit, and species strongly committed to frugivory are found in virtually every family. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Figs (Moraceae, Ficus species) are an often a crucial keystone fruit source for forest primates. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Almost 50% of primates are in danger of becoming extinct, according to the criteria of the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, one of the reasons being their consumption by humans. (springer.com)
  • This chapter aims at providing an overview of the global use of primates in traditional folk medicines, as well as identifying the species used as remedies associated to folk beliefs. (springer.com)
  • Our results revealed that at least 110 species of primates, belonging to 41 genera and 11 families, are used in traditional folk practices and in magic-religious rituals throughout the world. (springer.com)
  • Of the 110 species of primates recorded in our review, 22 species are classified as Vulnerable, 23 as Endangered, 14 as critically endangered, 7 as Near Threatened, 43 as Least Concern, and 1 classified as data deficient in the most recent IUCN Red List. (springer.com)
  • rhesus
  • A further problem is that the users of only about 10% of the cynomolgus macaques said that they could replace this species by rhesus macaques, which are easier to breed in the UK. (surrey.ac.uk)
  • Jong
  • There are no major threats to this species, although it has been locally displaced by agriculture and tree clearance in some parts of the range (T. Butynski and Y. de Jong pers. (iucnredlist.org)
  • prey

  • Papio is found in the Ethiopian region, with a mostly continuous distribution in sub-saharan Africa. (animaldiversity.org)
  • inhabits
  • The species inhabits a strip of 25 equatorial African countries, very nearly ranging from the east to west coasts of the continent. (wikipedia.org)
  • The species predominantly occupies inshore waters where it inhabits both reef and sandy substrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • In coastal areas the species inhabits rocky and coral reefs as well as open sand flats where it forages for food. (wikipedia.org)
  • diversity
  • However, current knowledge of the morphological, genetic, and behavioral diversity within Papio is too poor to make any final, comprehensive judgment on this matter. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ficus
  • Critical food resources for the species are Ficus sycomorus which fruits year round, and Phoenix reclinata which is also a primary food species and fruits when others do not. (wikipedia.org)
  • Endemic
  • The species is the etiological agent of African histoplamosis, and is endemic throughout western and central Africa in addition to Madagascar. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • Analyses of the newly found specimen at Malapa, and the group of fossil specimens traditionally placed in the fossil species P. angusticeps, suggest that P. angusticeps displays anatomy that is consistent with modern baboon populations. (medindia.net)
  • Papio papio is found in a small portion of western equatorial Africa. (animaldiversity.org)
  • exhibit
  • The Bronx Zoo is the only zoo in the U.S. that breeds the Gelada and is one of only two that exhibit the species. (zooborns.com)
  • range
  • They range in size and weight depending on species. (wikipedia.org)
  • Listed as Least Concern as the species is common, present in several major protected areas, and there are no major range-wide threats believed to be resulting in a significant population decline. (iucnredlist.org)
  • Over a large part of this species' range, it is specific to fire-climax Miombo ( Brachystegia ) woodland. (iucnredlist.org)
  • Each PIN Factsheet covers one or more species, including morphology, ecology, behavior, and conservation with range maps, images, and an extensive glossary of terms to illustrate the text. (wisc.edu)
  • The head-and-body length can range from 50 to 114 cm (20 to 45 in), with a species average of around 85 cm (33 in). (wikipedia.org)
  • The species have an average day-range length of 1.25 km. (wikipedia.org)
  • Five
  • Group sizes vary between five and 250 animals (often about 50 or so), depending on specific circumstances, especially species and time of year. (wikipedia.org)
  • occurs
  • This species occurs in southwestern Tanzania (possibly as far north as the Mahale Mountains National Park), in southern Democratic Republic of the Congo, western Zambia (west of the Luangwa River) and in northern Angola. (iucnredlist.org)
  • Generally
  • However, since the 1960s the fungus has been generally accepted as a separate species from H. capsulatum. (wikipedia.org)
