To examine what characteristics of food items affect feeding site selection, I describe herein the seasonal changes in food items, feeding sites, and food resource distributions of this species. Feeding behavior of monkeys and their(More)

Tree species diversity and proportion of fleshy-fruited species are much higher in Japan than in North Africa. Both species(More)
