A 16-month study of foraging and ranging among gray langurs (Presbytis entellus) in the Nepal Himalaya revealed that these animals range over larger areas than other gray langurs so far studied and that they show great seasonal differences in foraging and ranging. A summer monsoon and winter dry season characterize the Himalayan climate. During summer, broadleaf forest provides the basic foraging substrate for the langurs, and when its resources fail during the winter dry season, they radically… 
Ranging and foraging of Himalayan grey langurs (Semnopithecus ajax) in Machiara National Park, Pakistan
It is suggested that grey langurs in Machiara National Park employ a high-cost, high-return foraging strategy in winter, and that the ranging of the AMG also reflects its reproductive strategy.
Ranging of Rhinopithecus bieti in the Samage Forest, China. I. Characteristics of Range Use
We quantified the home range and explored the style of ranging of black-and-white snub-nosed monkeys (Rhinopithecus bieti) in the subtropical-temperate montane Samage Forest (part of Baimaxueshan
Himalayan Semnopithecus entellus at Langtang National Park, Nepal: Diet, Activity Patterns, and Resources
Foraging data from a field study of Himalayan langurs in Langtang National Park, Nepal shows marked seasonality in resource abundance, with extremely low availability in winter, increasing abundance in spring and monsoon, and a reduction in fall.
Home range and activity of the Indian giant flying squirrel (Petaurista philippensis) in Taiwan: influence of diet, temperature, and rainfall
Home ranges of P. philippensis are smaller than those of smaller flying squirrel species (genus Glaucomys and Pteromys spp.), which may be related to the differences in food habits and gliding efficiency.
Diet and activity budget of Rhinopithecus roxellana in the Qinling Mountains, China
R. roxellana spent more time moving in autumn, when the quality of the food might be highest, and least timeMoving in winter when the food quality might be lowest, thus, this type of monkey has a passive foraging strategy.
Altitudinal Ranging of Black-Crested Gibbons at Mt. Wuliang, Yunnan: Effects of Food Distribution, Temperature and Human Disturbance
Human activities directly influenced gibbon behaviour, might cause forest degradation and create dispersal barriers between populations, and probably explained the diel altitudinal ranging of the group, which tended to use the lower zone in the cold morning and the higher zone inThe warm afternoon.
Social interactions among adult male langurs (Presbytis entellus) at Rajaji Wildlife Sanctuary
Investigation of a population of langurs at the Rajaji Wildlife Sanctuary in northern India found members of all-male bands are able to associate with bisexual troops for prolonged periods during the mating season, and nontroop males are about as successful as troop males in achieving reproductive access to troop females.
Altitudinal Movements of Guizhou Snub-Nosed Monkeys (Rhinopithecus brelichi) in Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve, China: Implications for Conservation Management of a Flagship Species
This study investigates altitudinal movements of Guizhou snub-nosed monkeys at Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve, China, and suggests that this daily pattern of R. brelichi may reflect a trade-off between finding food and avoiding predation within the mixed evergreen and deciduous broadleaf vegetation zone at the study site.
