Cebuella, Callithrix, Leontopithecus, andSaguinus share five distinguishing features. All of these features are best interpreted as derived character states within Platyrrhini, and these animals are phyletic dwarfs. These derived traits may form a single complex that evolved as a result of dwarfing. Two changes in the dentition are shown to be correlated with dwarfing in mammals. These four platyrrhine genera may or may not form a monophyletic group. It is suggested thatCallimico is an… Expand
The Callimico goeldii (Primates, Platyrrhini) genome: Karyology and middle repetitive (LINE-1) DNA sequences
TLDR
Isozyme data and restriction mapping of LINE-1 repetitive elements in these species and in a variety of other neotropical primates confirm these findings and supply strong evidence for including Callimico in the Callitrichidae. Expand
Parallel episodes of phyletic dwarfism in callitrichid and cheirogaleid primates
TLDR
It is shown that both neonatal and adult body mass decreased in a gradual, phyletic manner in parallel across callitrichids, and across cheirogaleids, suggesting that the convergent evolution of small body size was achieved by changes in different ontogenetic stages. Expand
Comparative karyology and evolution of the Amazonian Callithrix (Platyrrhini, Primates)
TLDR
Karyotypic comparisons with other Callitrichids and an outgroup species showed that Call itrichids are karyologically conserved and explained several rearrangements that had presumably occurred during their phyletic radiation. Expand
The anatomy of Dolichocebus gaimanensis, a stem platyrrhine monkey from Argentina.
TLDR
A comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of fossil material from the Trelew Member of the Sarmiento Formation suggests a more layered evolutionary pattern, with several independent extinct clades filling modern platyrrhine niche space, and modern platyrhine families and subfamilies appearing over a nine-million-year interval in the Miocene. Expand
Phenotypic evolution in marmoset and tamarin monkeys (Cebidae, Callitrichinae) and a revised genus-level classification.
TLDR
An updated genus-level taxonomy of Callitrichinae is presented, which recognizes six genera in the subfamily: Callimico, Callithrix, Cebuella, Mico, Leontopithecus and Saguinus, to reflect their phenotypic distinctiveness and to avoid the use of the informal "species group". Expand
Miocene marmosets: First fossil evidence
TLDR
The first fossil remains of marmosets, an isolated incisor, premolar, and molar, all similar in size to Callithrix species, have been discovered in the middle Miocene La Venta fauna of Colombia and suggest that small body size may have preceded the tricuspid molar pattern in marmoset evolution. Expand
Size and Shape in Callimico and Marmoset Skulls: Allometry and Heterochrony in the Morphological Evolution of Small Anthropoids
TLDR
The results suggest that the evolution of marmosets/callimicos as a small-body clade occurred due to a heterochronic process where prenatal growth rates were reduced, which contrasts with other pygmy mammals where miniaturization is primarily postnatal. Expand
Mico humeralifer (Primates: Callitrichidae)
TLDR
M. humeralifer is the smallest primate in its distribution range and lives in small groups and inhabits primarily terra firme forested regions in the Amazon Basin, adapting quickly to second-growth forests. Expand
Title The Mysterious Loss of the Third Molar in the New World Monkey Family Callitrichidae and its Relationship to Phyletic Dwarfism Permalink
Callitrichidae is the smallest of five families of New World monkeys, descendants of African simians that colonized South America around 40 million years ago. Callitrichids, unlike other primates, doExpand
Platyrrhine Phylogenetics With A Focus On Callitrichine Life History Adaptations
TLDR
This dissertation addresses the changing reproductive strategies in callitrichine New World monkeys and their genetic underpinnings using a phylogenetic approach and constructed a reliable phylogenetic framework from which reproductive strategy could be studied incallitrichines. Expand

Cranial Anatomy and Evolution of Early Tertiary Plesiadapidae (Mammalia, Primates)
TLDR
The Bighorn Basin of Wyoming is important paleontologically for two reasons: it is the only place in the world where the early Cenozoic diversification of mammalian life is recorded through such a long sequence of continental sediments representing virtually continuous deposition, and many areas of the Bighorns are richly fossiliferous, making it possible to trace evolutionary changes through time in much more detail than is possible elsewhere.
