Toward a phylogenetic classification of Primates based on DNA evidence complemented by fossil evidence.
TLDR
A provisional primate classification based on DNA evidence and the time scale provided by fossils and the model of local molecular clocks has all named taxa represent clades and assigns the same taxonomic rank to those clades of roughly equivalent age. Expand

Apes are no monkeys! The best way to insult a scientist working on chimpanzees is to say he/she is working with monkeys. We, humans, belong to the same family as the anthropoid (human-like) apes,Expand
Assessment of the Diversity of African Primates
This account of the systematics of African primates is the consensus view of a group of authors who attended the Workshop of the IUCN/SSC Primate Specialist Group held at Orlando, Florida, inExpand
Estimating the phylogeny and divergence times of primates using a supermatrix approach
TLDR
This work presents an up-to-date, comprehensive estimate of the structure and tempo of primate evolutionary history, using Bayesian phylogenetic methods to analyze data supermatrices from 219 species across 67 genera and 3 nuclear genes from 26 genera. Expand
Asian Primate Classification
TLDR
The Asian primate classification that is presented is the outcome of electronic communication among the co-authors after a workshop, which was especially convened to attempt to determine the number of recognizable primate subspecies and to identify potentially recognizable subspecies. Expand

Phil ip H e r s h k o v i t z is, wi thou t a doubt , the leading f igure in neotropical mammalogy. It is the primates which have been his particular speciality; a stream of papers since the 1940s,Expand
Homo floresiensis: microcephalic, pygmoid, Australopithecus, or Homo?
TLDR
The affinities of LB1 are explored using cranial and postcranial metric and non-metric analyses and it is concluded that it is unlikely that LB1 is a microcephalic human, and it cannot be attributed to any known species. Expand
The What, Why and How of Primate Taxonomy

TLDR
Taxonomy has a well-defined role, which is much more than simply stamp-collecting and pigeon-holing; as such species must be defined as objectively as possible. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the New World titi monkeys (Callicebus): first appraisal of taxonomy based on molecular evidence
TLDR
Considering molecular, morphological and biogeographic evidence, a new genus level taxonomy for titi monkeys is proposed: Cheracebus n. Expand
