Cotton-top tamains (Saguinus oedipus) are a critically endangered primate found only in Colombia. Efforts to conserve this species are centered on developing effective management plans that integrate biological information regarding population dynamics and factors that influence their survival. This study documented infants born to wild cotton-top tamarin females from 1994-2008 at two distinct field sites in northern Colombia. Our studies have shown that wild cotton-top tamarins typically give… CONTINUE READING
