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

Catarrhine primate divergence dates estimated from complete mitochondrial genomes: concordance with fossil and nuclear DNA evidence.
Accurate divergence date estimates improve scenarios of primate evolutionary history and aid in interpretation of the natural history of disease-causing agents. While molecule-based estimates ofExpand

Mitochondrial data support an odd-nosed colobine clade.
To obtain a more complete understanding of the evolutionary history of the leaf-eating monkeys we have examined the mitochondrial genome sequence of two African and six Asian colobines. AlthoughExpand

Successive radiations, not stasis, in the South American primate fauna
The earliest Neotropical primate fossils complete enough for taxonomic assessment, Dolichocebus, Tremacebus, and Chilecebus, date to approximately 20 Ma. These have been interpreted as either closelyExpand

Primate phylogenetic relationships and divergence dates inferred from complete mitochondrial genomes.
The origins and the divergence times of the most basal lineages within primates have been difficult to resolve mainly due to the incomplete sampling of early fossil taxa. The main source ofExpand

Resolution of the African hominoid trichotomy by use of a mitochondrial gene sequence.
Mitochondrial DNA sequences encoding the cytochrome oxidase subunit II gene have been determined for five primate species, siamang (Hylobates syndactylus), lowland gorilla (Gorilla gorilla), pygmyExpand

Phylogenetic hypotheses for the Old World monkey tribe Papionini based on molecular data are incongruent with those inferred from previous morphological analyses. Morphologists have often inferred aExpand

New Genetic Evidence on the Evolution of Chimpanzee Populations and Implications for Taxonomy
Primatologists widely recognize chimpanzees as belonging to a single species, Pan troglodytes, which they traditionally have further divided into 3 subspecies: west African P. t. verus, centralExpand

Cercopithecine Y-chromosome data provide a test of competing morphological evolutionary hypotheses.
We report here the results of the first molecular evolutionary analysis to include members of all 10 extant genera of cercopithecine monkeys. A total of 44 individuals were surveyed for approximatelyExpand

Nuclear gene trees and the phylogenetic relationships of the mangabeys (Primates: Papionini).
Phylogenetic relationships of mangabeys within the Old World monkey tribe Papionini are inferred from analyses of nuclear DNA sequences from five unlinked loci. The following conclusions are stronglyExpand
