The Barbary macaque, Macaca sylvanus is a very adaptable primate species occupying a wide range of habitats in Morocco and Algeria. [...] Key Method We used instantaneous scan sampling at 15-min intervals. The behaviors included in the activity budget were feeding, moving, foraging, resting, and aggressive display. Food items were grouped into seven categories. We found no differences between the two groups in the daily percentages of records attributed to feeding. The semiprovisioned group spent significantly…Expand
Seasonal variation in activity budget and diet of the endangered Barbary macaque (Macaca sylvanus) in the tourist valley of Ouzoud, central High Atlas, Morocco
TLDR
It is shown that activity budgets and the feeding time spent on eating different food categories varied markedly among seasons, and conservation effort of Barbary macaques should consider the seasonal variations in activity budget and diet in human-modified environments. Expand
Diet and Activity of Macaca assamensis in Wild and Semi-Provisioned Groups in Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park, Nepal
TLDR
The results indicate that provisioning alters the activity and feeding behaviour of macaques, and can also increase human-macaque conflict and disease transmission. Expand
Comparison of the terrestriality of Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus) between tourist and wild sites in the region of Ouzoud, Morocco
Abstract We collected data on the terrestriality of two groups of Barbary macaques over a 7-month period: one group lived in a tourist site, while the other group lived in a wild site. The habitatsExpand
Comparison of Activity Budgets, Diet, and Habitat Utilization between Provisioned and Wild Groups of the François’ Langur (Trachypithecus francoisi) in Mayanghe National Nature Reserve, China
The endangered François’ langur (Trachypithecus francoisi) is only found from southern China to northeastern Vietnam. This study evaluates behavioral differences between provisioned (Ts, 7Expand
Diet, Activity, Habitat Use, and Ranging of Two Neighboring Groups of Food‐Enhanced Long‐Tailed Macaques (Macaca fascicularis)
TLDR
The group consuming more anthropogenic food showed more spatially dispersed feeding activity and home range use, an effect that was likely further enhanced by lower natural food resource availability within their home range. Expand
Effect of Provisioning on the Temporal Variation in the Activity Budget of Urban Long-Tailed Macaques (Macaca fascicularis) in West Sumatra, Indonesia
TLDR
The ability of the macaques to adjust their activity in response to the number of tourists (that is, provisioning patterns) indicated their behavioral flexibility, which may aid the management strategies to reduce human-macaque conflicts, which has become a major problem in Padang. Expand
The Effect of Climatic Factors on the Activity Budgets of Barbary Macaques (Macaca sylvanus)
TLDR
The data indicate that environmental factors significantly affect the time budgets of endangered Barbary macaques, a species that has been little studied in the wild, and support previous studies on temperate primates in showing that snow coverage can have negative consequences on the feeding ecology and survival of these species. Expand
Erratum to: Seasonal Variation in the Activity and Dietary Budgets of Cat Ba Langurs (Trachypithecus poliocephalus)
TLDR
Assessment of the behaviors and diet of Cat Ba langurs by group, age, sex, and season found animals ate more leaves and spent more time foraging in the dry season than the wet season, suggesting that they are energy maximizers. Expand
RANGING BEHAVIOR OF LONG-TAILED MACAQUES (Macaca fascicularis) AT THE ENTRANCE OF KUALA SELANGOR NATURE PARK
This study reported the ranging behavior of a group of long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis) that inhabit the area near Kuala Selangor Nature Park, Selangor, Malaysia. The data on the rangingExpand
Activity budget and social interactions in semi-captive gray woolly monkeys (Lagothrix lagotricha cana) living in an ex situ conservation area in Central Amazonia.
TLDR
Information is presented on the activity budget and social interactions of the elusive gray woolly monkeys, Lagothrix lagotricha cana, in an ex situ conservation area in central Amazonia to help identify environments that support an adequate activity budget for these monkeys. Expand

Behavior, Diet, and Movements of the Sulawesi Crested Black Macaque (Macaca nigra)
TLDR
The largest group had the largest home range, but it included less primary forest and more disturbed habitat than the ranges of smaller groups, and the top four dietary items accounted for most of the variance in entry into hectare blocks of home range. Expand
Behavioral Differences between Provisioned and Non-Provisioned Barbary Macaques (Macaca sylvanus)
ABSTRACT The majority of Gibraltar's Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus) are provided with fruit and vegetable rations to keep them in the nature reserve and away from town. Recent fissioning of oneExpand
Behavioral responses of Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus) to variations in environmental conditions in Algeria
TLDR
The behavioral responses of Barbary macaques to seasonal and interhabitat variations in resource availability were analyzed over an entire annual cycle and the limits of adaptability to different habitats are considered in light of the demographic parameters. Expand
Seasonal Differences in Activity Patterns of Geoffroyi´s Spider Monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi) Living in Continuous and Fragmented Forests in Southern Mexico
TLDR
It is confirmed that spider monkeys are able to adjust their activity patterns to deal with food scarcity in forest fragments and during the dry season, however, further studies are necessary to assess if these shifts are adequate to ensure their health, fitness, and long-term persistence in fragmented habitats.

TLDR
My findings do not support Boesch's (1991, 1996) hypothesis of bisexually bonded chimpanzees, and Taï chimpanzee social structure—party size and composition—during this study closely resembles that found at other study sites. Expand
Feeding ecology of the long-tailed macaque(Macaca fascicularis) in Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia

TLDR
Long- tailed macaques appear to be selective feeders but can exploit a variety of food sources during periods of food scarcity, and selection ratios for 19 food species indicate that 13 of them were selected more often than expected. Expand
Food Preference of Semi-Provisioned Macaques Based on Feeding Duration and Foraging Party Size
TLDR
Food preferences of long-tailed macaques that live in Cikakak Monkey Park in Central Java are presented and it is found that proportion of their food from natural resources is greater than those from human sources. Expand
