We describe Rondon’s marmoset (Mico rondoni sp. n.) from the Rio Jamari in the Brazilian state of Rondônia and differentiate the species from other Amazonian marmosets on the basis of morphological, genetic, and zoogeographic characteristics. Mico rondoni sp. n. is a typical bare-eared marmoset of predominantly grayish coloration and unpigmented face and cheiridia, which contrasts clearly with its more brownish and pigmented parapatric congeners Mico melanurus and M. nigriceps. Genetically, the… 

Reconsidering the taxonomy of the Black-Faced Uacaris, Cacajao melanocephalus group (Mammalia: Pitheciidae), from the northern Amazon Basin.

Additional evidence on morphological and zoogeographic variables is analyzed, which indicates that C. ouakary should be reinstated, and supports the nomination of a neotype of C. melanocephalus.

It is shown that this little known marmoset Mico marcai is significantly different in facial pigmentation and pelage color from all other marmosets of the genus Mico in the Madeira–Tapajós interfluvium.

An integrative analysis uncovers a new, pseudo-cryptic species of Amazonian marmoset (Primates: Callitrichidae: Mico) from the arc of deforestation

A new, pseudo-cryptic Mico species hidden within the epithet M. emiliae is discovered, here described and named after Horacio Schneider, the pioneer of molecular phylogenetics of Neotropical primates.

Biogeography of the marmosets and tamarins (Callitrichidae).

Cranial Morphology of the Dwarf Marmoset Callibella in the Context of Callitrichid Variability

It is found that Callibella is clearly distinct from all other genera, in particular in the morphology of the lower jaw, indicating that this genus is morphologically distinct from its closest relatives, the marmosets.

The Conservation Status of Callicebus caquetensis (Pitheciidae): A New Species in Southern Caquetá Department, Colombia

Abstract Moynihan (1976) mentioned an undescribed species of Callicebus between the ríos Caquetá and Orteguaza, Caquetá Department, Colombia. In August 2008, we confirmed the new species, which is

Sympatric Distribution of Two Species of Alouatta (A. Seniculus and A. Palliata: Primates) in Chocó, Colombia

The condition of many of the forests in this study suggests the necessity of a conservation program in order to protect this unique zone of sympatry between Alouatta palliata and A. seniculus on the left bank of the Atrato River.

How many marmoset (Primates: Cebidae: Callitrichinae) genera are there? A phylogenetic analysis based on multiple morphological systems

This is the first morphological study to support an Amazonian marmoset clade (Cebuella + Mico), which is also strongly supported in exclusively molecular phylogenies, and to synonimize Callibella under Mico.

Mico humeralifer (Primates: Callitrichidae)

M. humeralifer is the smallest primate in its distribution range and lives in small groups and inhabits primarily terra firme forested regions in the Amazon Basin, adapting quickly to second-growth forests.

Atualização do Conhecimento Sobre o Sauim-De-Cara-Suja, Saguinus weddelli (Primates, Callitrichinae), no Estado De Rondônia

Abstract This study consists of an update on the knowledge of the geographical distribution and population data of the saddle-back tamarin (Saguinus weddelli) in the area lying east of the Madeira



Adaptive Radiations of Neotropical Primates

New Perspectives on the Pithecines (Pithecia, Cacajao, Chiropotes, Callicebus, Aotus) and the Evolution of Positional Behavior in the Saki-Uakaris S.L. Rosenberger.

Marmoset phylogenetics, conservation perspectives, and evolution of the mtDNA control region.

The phylogenetic analyses provide convincing support for a split between the Atlantic forest and Amazonian marmosets, with the inclusion of the pygmy marmoset (Cebuella pygmaea) at the base of the Amazonian clade.

Foraging behavior of a tamarin group (Saguinus fuscicollis weddelli) and interactions with marmosets (Callithrix emiliae)

Diet, activity patterns, and ranging behavior are broadly similar to those of S. f.

Geographic distribution and abundance of woolly (Lagothrix cana) and spider (Ateles chamek) monkeys in southwestern Brazilian Amazonia

Two species of frugivorous atelids, Ateles chamek and Lagothrix cana, occur in southwestern Brazilian Amazonia, with both species being tolerant of habitat disturbance when hunting pressure is low.

Primate Populations in Eastern Amazonia

Eastern Amazonia is defined here as the region to the east of the Rio Xingu, including the Marajo archipelago in the Amazon delta (Figure 1). This region’s habitats can be divided into three main

Mitochondrial COII Gene Sequences Provide New Insights into the Phylogeny of Marmoset Species Groups (Callitrichidae, Primates)

Mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase II gene sequences were used to investigate the taxonomic relationships among 12 marmoset (Callithrix, Cebuella and Mico) taxa and found a large number of substitutions in the third base codon positions, providing a strong phylogenetic signal in a gene coding a conserved protein.

Protein variation, taxonomy and differentiation in five species of marmosets (genusCallithrixErxleben, 1777)

The electrophoretic patterns of 15 protein systems codified for 20 genetic loci were investigated using horizontal electrophoresis and revealed a phylogenetic separation of these species into two groups: “argentata” and “jacchus”.

Chromosomal relationships and phylogenetic and clustering analyses on genes Callithrix group argentata (Callitrichidae, Primates).

The karyotypes of three species of marmosets of the Callithrix argentata group and the outgroup C. jacchus were studied to agree with morphological and geographical data.

Forest use and activity patterns of Callimico goeldii in comparison to two sympatric tamarins, Saguinus fuscicollis and Saguinus labiatus.

The results suggest that C. goeldii may be restricted to forests with dense understory and a mosaic of other microhabitats, and does not appear to use its tegulae for large branch foraging, but rather for vertical clinging and leaping between small vertical supports.

Gummivory and gut morphology in two sympatric callitrichids (Callithrix emiliae and Saguinus fuscicollis weddelli) from western Brazilian Amazonia.

The apparent specialisation of the digestive tract in C. emiliae correlates with that of its dentition, which is adapted for gouging the bark of gum-producing plants, and a similar degree of specialisation is predicted for other marmosets.
