Of how much concern are the ‘least concern’ species? Distribution and conservation status of bonnet macaques, rhesus macaques and Hanuman langurs in Karnataka, India
Bonnet macaques have been eliminated from about 48% temples/tourist spots where they occurred in the recent past and the Hanuman langur population of Dharwar–Haliyal Road was assessed, and it was found that the present population size was about 38% of a previous survey in 1961.
Of Least Concern? Range Extension by Rhesus Macaques (Macaca mulatta) Threatens Long-Term Survival of Bonnet Macaques (M. radiata) in Peninsular India
The range extension of rhesus macaque—a natural process in some areas and a direct consequence of introduction by humans in other regions—poses grave implications for the endemic and declining populations of bonnet macaques in southern India.

Species conservation depends on the needs of the species concerned. For example, obligatory forest-dwelling and typically urban primate species require different conservation approaches. Here, I
Losing its ground: A case study of fast declining populations of a ‘least-concern’ species, the bonnet macaque (Macaca radiata)
The bonnet macaque, a species that is considered ‘least-concern’ for conservation, is actually facing serious conservation challenges and can serve as a model for the development of long-term conservation strategies for most such species.
A sight record of Rhesus Macaque Macaca mulatta (Primates: Cercopithecidae) in Karnataka, India
The Rhesus Macaque Macaca mulatta is one of the most widely distributed macaques belonging to the order Primates and the first sight record of this species in Karnataka, India is presented.
Comparative Demography of Two Commensal Macaques in India: Implications for Population Status and Conservation
The bonnet macaque population has decreased in number in the common distribution zone, and as this species, unlike the rhesus macaque, is endemic to India, the need to reassess its conservation status is strongly recommended.
Of Concern Yet? Distribution and Conservation Status of the Bonnet Macaque (Macaca radiata) in Goa, India
Abstract: The bonnet macaque Macaca radiata, endemic to peninsular India, is typically ignored in conservation initiatives as it is considered a common species, ubiquitously present across its
Less than wild? Commensal primates and wildlife conservation
The practice of humans transporting monkeys outside their natural geographic realms itself is not very infrequent and humans have been responsible for the introduction of macaque species in many parts of the world that has resulted in either an extension of the geographical range of the species or the creation of new exotic populations of thespecies.
Weed macaques: The evolutionary implications of macaque feeding ecology
Based on available information about their ecology in the wild, macaque species are tentatively assigned to either weed species or non-weed species, based on differing abilities of macaques to tolerate and even prosper in close association with human settlements.
The distribution pattern of rhesus and Assamese monkeys in Nepal
Discontinuous distribution of Assamese monkeys probably appeared as a result of the expansion of rhesus monkey distribution in the mid- and late-Pleistocene, and urgent conservation policy must be pursued.
