Impending extinction crisis of the world’s primates: Why primates matter
Impending extinction of the world’s primates due to human activities; immediate global attention is needed to reverse the trend. Nonhuman primates, our closest biological relatives, play importantExpand

Role of spatial memory in primate foraging patterns: Saguinus mystax and Saguinus fuscicollis
  • P. Garber
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of primatology
  • 1989
From field data collected in the Amazon Basin of northeastern Peru, I present evidence that moustached (Saguinus mystax) and saddle‐back (Saguinus fuscicollis) tamarins maintain detailed knowledge ofExpand

  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of physical anthropology
  • 1 August 1992
Primates of the subfamily Callitrichinae (Callimico, Callithrix, Leontopithecus, and Saguinus) are small-bodied New World monkeys (105-700 g) possessing clawlike nails on all manual and pedal digitsExpand

  • 1997
This paper explores relations of ontogeny, life history strategies and patterns of infant care in 11 species of small-bodied New World monkeys. Analysis of these data suggests that differences in theExpand

One for all and breeding for one: Cooperation and competition as a tamarin reproductive strategy
In this paper I examine behavioral strategies used by male and female tamarins to increase individual reproductive opportunities while continuing to maintain a high level of group cohesion and socialExpand

The ecology of seed dispersal in two species of callitrichid primates (Saguinus mystax and Saguinus fuscicollis)
  • P. Garber
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of primatology
  • 1986
Data collected during a 12‐month field investigation of mixed species troops of Saguinus mystax and Saguinus fuscicollis in the Amazon Basin of north‐eastern Peru indicate that callitrichid primatesExpand

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

The ecological role of the prehensile tail in white-faced capuchins (Cebus capucinus).
  • P. Garber, J. Rehg
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of physical anthropology
  • 1 November 1999
Prehensile tails appear to have evolved at least twice in platyrrhine evolution. In the atelines, the tail is relatively long and possesses a bare area on the distal part of its ventral surface thatExpand

The Gut Microbiota Appears to Compensate for Seasonal Diet Variation in the Wild Black Howler Monkey (Alouatta pigra)
For most mammals, including nonhuman primates, diet composition varies temporally in response to differences in food availability. Because diet influences gut microbiota composition, it is likelyExpand
