The endocrinology of puberty and reproductive functioning in female cotton-top tamarins (Saguinus oedipus) under varying social conditions.
TLDR
The findings indicate that a suppression of fertility occurs in cotton-top tamarins living with their families, but that reproductive suppression does not affect the process of sexual maturation.
Influence of Social Factors on Seasonal Variations in Plasma Testosterone Levels of Microcebus murinus
TLDR
The influence of social grouping on the seasonal cycle of plasma testosterone levels was studied in the lesser mouse lemur under natural photoperiod in Paris and two or 3 peaks in plasma testosterone concentrations were observed in dominant males when females entered estrus.
Reproduction and social rank in female stumptail Macaques (Macaca arctoides)
TLDR
No systematic seasonal fluctuations were found in the onset of sexual maturity, in ovarian cycle lengths, in copulation frequencies, and in distribution of births in female stumptail macaques.
Chapter 13 c 0013 Hormones and Reproductive Cycles in Primates
TLDR
Primates experience a long reproductive life, typically with age-related reductions in female fertility and in male androgen production, with reproductive senescence driven primarily by loss of the follicular pool.
The Endocrine System of the Squirrel Monkey
TLDR
This chapter will review a series of recent studies on the endocrine system of the squirrel monkey, which has some of the highest hormone levels observed so far, and consider several of the important psychological processes that affect endocrine function.

Changes in Testosterone and Behavior During Adolescence in the Male Rhesus Monkey
TLDR
Testosterone levels showed initial rises by age 3, but did not show the adult male seasonal pattern until 4, while sex behavior showed seasonal increases in both Year 2 and Year prior to the rise in plasma testosterone.
Physical, hormonal and behavioural aspects of sexual development in the marmoset monkey, Callithrix jacchus.
TLDR
Measurements of growth, plasma progesterone and testosterone levels, and copulatory behaviour were obtained from captive marmosets from birth until 600-800 days of age, finding that in peer groups, only the dominant female became pregnant, because subordinate females failed to ovulate.

TLDR
It is suggested that age at first conception, a biologically more relevant index than menarche, should be considered as a potentially important adaptive variable when describing primate species.

TLDR
In June, at 2 years old, spermatogenesis was arrested, the accessory glands were involuted, and the first set of antlers was cast, marking the end of the first reproductive cycle; the testes and accessory glands redeveloped in October.
Hormonal regulation of the “fatted” phenomenon in squirrel monkeys
TLDR
The data suggest that the ‘fatted’ condition observed seasonally in the field is regulated by fluctuations in endogenous androgen levels of males and that females share that characteristic responsiveness to androgen.
