Body weight and ten body segment measurements were collected from 367 wild-trapped vervet monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops) in central and southern Kenya. The animals represent between 70 and 95% of…
The genome of the vervet (Chlorocebus aethiops sabaeus).
We describe a genome reference of the African green monkey or vervet (Chlorocebus aethiops). This member of the Old World monkey (OWM) superfamily is uniquely valuable for genetic investigations of…

It is found that over the past 20 years, the percentage of women first authors of invited symposia talks has increased, particularly in the sub-disciplines of bioarchaeology, genetics, and paleoanthropology, however, these observed increases are still lower than expected given the percentages of graduate student women and women at the rank of assistant and associate professor.
Systems biology of the vervet monkey.
The phylogeny and population history of the vervet monkey is described and the use of both captive and wild vervet monkeys in biomedical research is summarized.
SIVagm Infection in Wild African Green Monkeys from South Africa: Epidemiology, Natural History, and Evolutionary Considerations
A large scale study of molecular epidemiology and natural history of SIVagm infection in 225 free-ranging AGMs from multiple locations in South Africa, finding a long standing presence of Siv in AGMs, at least from the time of their speciation to their Plio-Pleistocene migration.
Variation in Scrotal Color Among Widely Distributed Vervet Monkey Populations (Chlorocebus Aethiops Pygerythrus and Chlorocebus Aethiops Sabaeus)
It is suggested that color variation is related to maturation and may function as an age‐related signal among Ch.

The metric variation in 35 human and non-human primate ‘populations’ from known environmental contexts and 14 time- and space-restricted paleodemes of H. erectus and other fossil Homo are considered, finding more similar patterns of variation than expected, with plasticity evident, but in differing patterns by sex across populations.
Ancient hybridization and strong adaptation to viruses across African vervet monkey populations
High diversity within and between taxa and clear evidence that taxonomic divergence was reticulate rather than following a simple branching pattern are found and a scan for diversifying selection across taxa identifies strong and highly polygenic selection signals affecting viral processes.

Testing the hypothesis that populations characterized by high levels of human impact are more physiologically stressed than low human impact populations found that males in high human impact groups had significantly higher hair cortisol concentrations than those in lowhuman impact groups, although this difference was not observed in female vervets.
