  title={Foods and feeding behavior of wild black-capped capuchin (Cebus apella)},
  author={Kosei Izawa},
Having various kinds of food in its food repertoire, the capuchin (Cebus apella) fed mainly on fruit and insects. Feeding behavior varied according to the kind of food and such behaviors were effective ones performed by the capuchin, which seems to know well both the nature of the plants and habits of the animals it eats. It can also be said that they are highly intellectual ones. In addition, because of the strong relationship between the capuchin's feeding behavior and its habitat, it can be…

Observations of a group of blond capuchins, isolated in three small forest fragments of the Pernambuco Endemism Center, located in the Atlantic Forest of North-eastern Brazil, revealed that the two

Diets of some French guianan primates: Food composition and food choices

It is hypothesize that the ability to taste sugars, which varies among primates, affects the range of foods appearing to be palatable and, consequently, contributes to the differentiation of feeding niches.

Social behavior of the wild black-capped Capuchin (Cebus apella)

Diet diversity and seasonality of robust capuchins (Sapajus sp.) in a tiny urban forest

Capuchins are omnivorous neotropical primates that can survive in urban forests by supplementing their diet with human foods. However, few studies have analyzed the impact of these resources on their

Techniques Used by Bearded Capuchin Monkeys (Sapajus libidinosus) to Access Water in a Semi-Arid Environment of North-Eastern Brazil

The behaviours employed by individuals belonging to a wild group of bearded capuchin monkeys (Sapajus libidinosus) to access natural water sources in a dry forest of north-eastern Brazil are reported, enriching the understanding of primate strategies to gain access to a vital resource under challenging conditions.

The ontogeny of foraging skills in wild brown capuchins (Cebus apella)

This study provides a view on how the gradual acquisition of foraging competence in brown capuchins is aided jointly by physical maturation and indirect social input that provides opportunities to practice appropriate foraging actions.

Sexual dimorphism offered the best explanation of sex differences in the diet and foraging behavior of C. capucinus, accurately predicting that males do more strenuous foraging activity, make less use of small foraging supports, and spend more time on or near the ground.

Variability in food-processing behavior among white-faced capuchins (Cebus capucinus) in Santa Rosa National Park, Costa Rica.

Rates of object-use behavior at Santa Rosa were considerably higher than those reported for Palo Verde and showed significant variation between groups and age/sex classes, as did patterns of Sloanea and Luehea processing.

A field study of the ecology and behavior of the black-mantle tamarin (Saguinus nigricollis)

The author made an ecological study of the black-mantle tamarin in the primary forest in the basin of the River Caquetá in the upper Amazon in Colombia for 88 days during a study period from August 1975 to February 1976, concluding that the behavior which forms the basis of the tamarins' daily activity is the hunting of grasshoppers.
