Callitrichines The Role of Competition in Cooperatively Breeding Species
Indication for facultative polygamy in free-ranging Tarsius spectrum, supported by morpho-metric data, and evidence for a slow life history and non-monogamous mating system is shown.
A molecular analysis of the evolutionary relationships in the Callitrichinae, with emphasis on the position of the dwarf marmoset
A molecular analysis of the evolutionary relationships in the Callitrichinae, with emphasis on the position of the dwarf marmoset, is presented.

Overall, the study emphasizes the relative paucity of the mammalian fauna of eastern Amazonia, in terms of both species diversity and abundance, and its vulnerability to the ongoing process of human colonization in the region.
Between-year differences in the feeding ecology of highland marmosets ( Callithrix aurita and Callithrix flaviceps ) in south-eastern Brazil
Several significant differences observed in the present study further highlight the problems associated with the evaluation of intertaxon differences in the behaviour and ecology of primates, in particular marmosets, on the basis of relatively short-term studies of a few individuals, often at only a single study site.
Evolutionary inferences on the diversity of the genus Aotus (Platyrrhini, Cebidae) from mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit II gene sequences.
Predation of arthropods by southern bearded sakis (Chiropotes satanas) in Eastern Brazilian Amazonia
It is suggested that bearded sakis actively seek arthropods as a dietary supplement, but that they represent a minor resource during most of the year, even under conditions of intense habitat fragmentation (island group).

Bat flies were surveyed in the Carnijo Private Natural Heritage Reserve in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco between March, 2007 and February, 2008, collecting 16 species of streblid bat flies from 10 bat species of the family Phyllostomidae.
Behavior patterns of Southern Bearded Sakis (Chiropotes satanas) in the fragmented landscape of Eastern Brazilian Amazonia
Overall, the island group presented a relatively reduced behavioral repertoire, apparently reflecting factors such as group size and the size and quality of its home range.
Geophagy in New World Monkeys (Platyrrhini): Ecological and Geographic Patterns
Geophagy has been recorded in an increasing number of New World monkeys (Platyrrhini) over recent years, permitting a tentative analysis of ecological patterns and the functional aspects of geophagy in the platyrrhines still remain unclear.
