Digestive tract morphology and function were studied in the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), a small (350 g) exudivore with a well-developed caecum. Transit times (times of first appearance of the markers in the faeces following a pulse dose in the food) were similar for Co-EDTA, which marks the fluid phase of the digesta, and Cr-mordanted cell walls,(More)

We have collected published and unpublished data from several Callithrix colonies and pooled information on criteria for developmental progress and maturation using a questionnaire sent to numerous experts in the field.(More)
