Seasonal Home Range Changes of the Sichuan Snub-Nosed Monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana) in the Qinling Mountains of China
The seasonal changes in home range and habitat use of the Sichuan snub-nosed monkey, Rhinopithecus roxellana, have been studied by radio tracking and direct observation in the Qinling Mountains ofExpand

Whole-genome sequencing of the snub-nosed monkey provides insights into folivory and evolutionary history
Colobines are a unique group of Old World monkeys that principally eat leaves and seeds rather than fruits and insects. We report the sequencing at 146× coverage, de novo assembly and analyses of theExpand

Fallback foods of temperate-living primates: a case study on snub-nosed monkeys.
Only a few primate species thrive in temperate regions characterized by relatively low temperature, low rainfall, low species diversity, high elevation, and especially an extended season of foodExpand

Characteristics of night-time sleeping places selected by golden monkeys (Rhinopithecus bieti) in the Samage Forest, Baima Snow Mountain Nature Reserve, China.
We examined the criteria for sleeping place selection in a social band of Rhinopithecus bieti (black-and-white snub-nosed or golden monkeys) living in the mountainous Samage Forest, Baima SnowExpand

Ranging of Rhinopithecus bieti in the Samage Forest, China. I. Characteristics of Range Use
We quantified the home range and explored the style of ranging of black-and-white snub-nosed monkeys (Rhinopithecus bieti) in the subtropical-temperate montane Samage Forest (part of BaimaxueshanExpand

Choice of analytical method can have dramatic effects on primate home range estimates
Primate home range sizes can vary tremendously as a consequence of the analytical technique chosen to estimate home range. This is exemplified by a recent dataset on free ranging snub-nosed monkeysExpand

The effect of landscape features on population genetic structure in Yunnan snub‐nosed monkeys (Rhinopithecus bieti) implies an anthropogenic genetic discontinuity
The Tibetan Plateau is one of the top 10 biodiversity hotspots in the world and acts as a modern harbour for many rare species because of its relatively pristine state. In this article, we report aExpand

Ranging of Rhinopithecus bieti in the Samage Forest, China. II. Use of Land Cover Types and Altitudes
We investigated composition and structure of a temperate montane forest called Samage at Baimaxueshan National Nature Reserve in Yunnan, one of the last refuges for the highly endangeredExpand

Seasonal Variation in the Activity Patterns and Time Budgets of Trachypithecus francoisi in the Nonggang Nature Reserve, China
Activity patterns and time budgets are 2 important aspects of animal behavior that researchers use to investigate ecological influences on individual behavior. We collected data on activity patternsExpand

Phylogeography and population structure of the Yunnan snub‐nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus bieti) inferred from mitochondrial control region DNA sequence analysis
Rhinopithecus bieti, the Yunnan snub‐nosed monkey, is the nonhuman primate with the highest altitudinal distribution and is also one of the 25 most globally endangered primate species. Currently, R.Expand
