Proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) feeding behavior and ecology were studied at the Natai Lengkuas Station, Tanjung Puting National Park, Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia. Data on feeding behavior were collected using scan sampling during group follows. Three vegetational plots containing 1,732 trees were established and monitored monthly for changes in fruit, flower, and young leaf production. Basal area and canopy cover were calculated and used in estimating food abundance. Proboscis monkeys… Expand
Feeding ecology of the long-tailed macaque(Macaca fascicularis) in Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia
  • C. Yeager
  • Biology
  • International Journal of Primatology
  • 2007
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
The feeding ecology and activity budget of proboscis monkeys
TLDR
It is found that monthly fruit availability was positively related to monthly fruit eating and feeding activity, and seasonal fluctuations in dietary diversity were significantly affected by fruit eating. Expand
The diet and feeding behavior of the silver leaf monkey (Trachypithecus auratus sondaicus) in Indonesia

TLDR
Differences in the diet of the two groups were related largely to differences in vegetational composition and the availability and abundance of food items for the species common to both sites. Expand
Diet and its composition of the proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus Wurmb) in rubber forest of Tabalong District, South Kalimantan
TLDR
Eighteen plant species belonging to at least ten families were found as food sources and the monkey was likely to be folivore, and those sampled leaves contained nutrition and essential minerals that were required by this colobine monkey. Expand
The ecology and behaviour of proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) in mangrove habitat of Labuk Bay, Sabah
TLDR
The results indicated that the activity patterns for semi-Wild proboscis monkeys are similar with those In the wild, and the significant positive correlations between monthly feeding frequencies to monthly pancakes and young leaves feeding frequencies suggest that pancakes and mangroves plants are equally important food sources for proboscIS monkeys in LBPMS.

Proboscis Monkey (Nasalis larvatus): Bio-ecology and Conservation
Proboscis monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) are endemic to Borneo and primarily reside in peat swamp forest, mangrove, and riparian forest. Some smaller populations have also been found in upstreamExpand
Habitat use and movement of proboscis monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) in a degraded and human-modified forest landscape
Proboscis monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) are endemic to Borneo and live in habitats threatened by land clearance for agriculture, aquaculture and timber. This thesis examines the roles of structural andExpand

There has been limited information on the foraging behaviour of Proboscis Monkeys particularly feeding ecology of these monkeys. Foraging behaviour of Proboscis Monkeys and the effect of phenology ofExpand
Population dynamics of the proboscis monkey Nasalis larvatus in the Lower Kinabatangan, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia
TLDR
Assessment of the population trends and group sizes of proboscis monkeys over 10 years in the Lower Kinabatangan floodplain in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo revealed significantly reduced group sizes, probably a result of forest fragmentation. Expand
Status and Conservation of Proboscis Monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) in Sabah, East Malaysia
Abstract: The proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) was surveyed in the East Malaysian state of Sabah to establish its population status and to assess threats to its survival. It was found to be moreExpand

Ecology and behavior of the wild proboscis monkey,Nasalis larvatus (Wurmb), in Sabah, Malaysia
TLDR
The adult males appear to play the role of leaders in the troop through their characteristic behavior, attacking, threatening, warning, watching, etc., other troop members or invaders. Expand
Food selection by black colobus monkeys (Colobus satanas) in relation to plant chemistry
TLDR
It is proposed that relative importance of digestion-inhibitors, low nutrient content and toxins as constraints on food selection by generalist herbivores will vary greatly among forests with different nutrient and secondary chemistry profiles. Expand
Seasonal Variations of Diet Related to Species and Sex in a Community of Cercopithecus Monkeys
TLDR
Interspecific differences are related to search strategies which depend on body weight, forest levels used, social roles, etc, which suggests that interspecific competition is important in determining resource partitioning. Expand

TLDR
Proboscis monkeys, Nasalis larvatus, were observed from a boat in coastal mangrove swamps in Brunei and there was evidence that these parties were of ephemoral composition. Expand

TLDR
Differences in feeding behaviour may explain why red colobus live in large troops in large ranges whiel black and white colobUS live in small troops in small ranges. Expand
Proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) social organization: Intergroup patterns of association
  • C. Yeager
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of primatology
  • 1991
TLDR
Proboscis monkey social organization was studied at the Natai Lengkuas station, Tanjung Puting National Park in Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia and indicated that the groups formed two separate bands, the first evidence for such a two‐tiered system of organization in an arboreal colobine species.

Food selection by the South Indian leaf-monkey, Presbytis johnii, in relation to leaf chemistry
TLDR
Additional data on mature leaf petioles and young leaves suggest that the high ratio of cell-sap to cell-wall in these items, and their related high digestibility, explain the high relative abundance of these items in the P. johnii diet. Expand
Proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) social organization: Group structure
  • C. Yeager
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of primatology
  • 1990
TLDR
Proboscis monkey social organization was studied at the Tanjung Puting National Park in Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia and one‐male groups appear to be “female bonded”; adult females direct affiliative behaviors towards their offspring and other adult females, not towards the male. Expand
Food selection by two South-east Asian colobine monkeys (Presbytis rubicunda and Presbytis melalophos) in relation to plant chemistry.
TLDR
The biochemical profiles of the young leaf diet of these two monkeys were compared with previously published information on two African and one south Indian colobines and showed marked similarities between different animals, considering contrasts in their habitats. Expand
