The following parameters of the Taiwan monkey,Macaca cyclopis, are presented and compared with other species ofMacaca: the menstrual cycle, sexual skin and vaginal desquamation changes during the menstrual cycle, time of ovulation, gestation period, breeding season, body weight of the newborn, age and body weight at menarche, body weight at first conception, spermatozoa count in the ejaculate, and the body weight at sexual maturity of the male.The many similarities in reproductive biology… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Successful artificial insemination for indoor breeding in the Japanese monkey (Macaca fuscata) and the cynomolgus monkey (Macaca fascicularis)
TLDR
The results indicate the usefulness of vaginal AI as a method of artificial indoor breeding in the Japanese monkey and the Cynomolgus monkey. Expand
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. Expand
Birth seasonality and interbirth intervals in free-ranging formosan macaques,Macaca cyclopis, at Mt. Longevity, Taiwan
TLDR
It is reported that a time span of one year between births can be considered as the norm for the wild Formosan macaqueM. Expand
Life history variables of wild troops of formosan macaques (Macaca cyclopis) in Kenting, Taiwan
TLDR
The reproductive parameters of Formosan macaques in Kenting were found to be more similar to that of rhesus monkeys than to Japanese macaques, and a case of higher reproductive success in a high-ranking matriline was reported. Expand
The evolution of human reproduction: a primatological perspective.
  • R. Martin

  • American journal of physical anthropology
  • 2007
Successful reconstruction of any aspect of human evolution ideally requires broad-based comparisons with other primates, as recognition of general principles provides a more reliable foundation forExpand
Birth and breeding cyclicity in an outdoor living stumptail macaque (Macaca arctoides) group
TLDR
The data show that no discrete seasonality in matings and births is present for Macaca arctoides but that an unusual pattern consisting of three peaks throughout the year, for births, may be typical of the species. Expand
Non-seasonal breeding pattterns in stumptail macaques (Macaca arctoides)
TLDR
Data on sexual behavior and birth patterns are presented which confirm previous reports of non-seasonality for M. arctoides, which does not exhibit the seasonal cyclicity observed in some other macaque species. Expand
Macaque Fertility Signals
TLDR
There is a great deal of inter-specific variation in the presence and type of fertility signals shown, as well as in their apparent accuracy in reflecting ovulatory function. Expand
Primate copulation calls and postcopulatory female choice
TLDR
The hypothesis that copulation calls are an honest signals of fertility that are used by females to encourage mate guarding by their preferred mating partners and reduce the likelihood of sperm competition is examined. Expand
Weed macaques: The evolutionary implications of macaque feeding ecology
TLDR
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. Expand

ADOLESCENCE OF MACAQUES1
TLDR
The sexual maturation of primates, from the menarche, or the first menstruation, to the first ovulation and subsequent pregravid endometrial development is studied. Expand
GROWTH OF THE FETUS AND PLACENTA OF THE MONKEY (MACACA MULATTA).
TLDR
The weight and length of fetal monkeys, Macaca mulatta, from the fortieth day of gestation to term were tabulated and plotted as growth curves and the area and weight of the placenta when retained in the absence of the fetus were plotted. Expand
Water metabolism in relation to the menstrual cycle
TLDR
The discovery that the sexual skin of monkeys can be activated by cestrogenic substances constituted the first step in understanding of the sexual-skin mechanism; it still remains the outstanding fact in the authors' knowledge ofSexual-skin physiology. Expand
Optimal mating time for pregnancy in the monkey.
TLDR
The results of five years of monkey breeding are presented, during which period there was in use a rigorously standardized plan for mating at a particular time in the menstrual cycle and for a limited time only. Expand
Menstrual irregularities in rhesus monkeys elicited by reserpine administered on selected days of the cycle.
TLDR
Female rhesus monkeys were treated with reserpine during the proliferative phase of the menstrual cycle, in varying dosages and patterns of administration, giving evidence of causing a temporary suppression of circulating estrogen. Expand
25. The Duration and Phases of the Menstrual Cycle in Primates
TLDR
This finding is related to the well-established view that the luteal phase in the human menstrual cycle is generally less variable than the pre-ovulation phase. Expand
Effect of protein deficiency on plasma progesterone levels during the menstrual cycle of adult rhesus monkeys.
TLDR
Persistent low levels of progesterone were observed for the following 1–2 menstrual cycles, after which the monkeys had amenorrhea, and these levels gradually declined before menstruation. Expand
EXPERIENCES IN LARGE‐SCALE BREEDING OF SIMIANS FOR MEDICAL EXPERIMENTATION *
TLDR
These include analyses of menstrual cycles and their application to breeding, a new mating schedule to improve efficiency during peak conception periods and annual reproductive performance, as well as data on the progeny produced by the three macaque species predominant in the colony. Expand
Birth weight, gestational age, and type of delivery in rhesus monkeys.
TLDR
The variability in birth weights of 471 rhesus monkeys at a specific gestational age was wide, just as in human newborn infants; this variability could be a biological phenomenon; fetal development is highly independent even in similar environmental situations. Expand
Some Observations on the Bonnet Macaque
TLDR
In 1931, Dr. Firor returned from India with a collection of South Indian bonnet macaques (Macaca radiata), which included the adults that served as subjects for the following observations, which are here recorded since such observations are lacking for this species. Expand
