The distribution of golden langurs (Trachypithecus geei) is limited to a small area of western Assam in northeast India and Bhutan between the rivers Manas in the east, Sankosh in the west, and Brahmaputra in the south. It is one of the most seriously endangered primate species of India. A comparative analysis based on satellite images taken in 1988 and 1998 showed a 50% loss of original golden langur habitat. Data on population dynamics collected using line transect and total count methods are…

Population abundance and distribution of the endangered golden langur (Trachypithecus geei, Khajuria 1956) in Bhutan
The population estimate of golden langurs in Bhutan is much lower than the current IUCN estimate of 4000 individuals for Bhutan, necessitating a reassessment of its current conservation status due to threats from road kills, electrocution, and development activities like road construction, hydropower, and electrical transmission lines.
Population Status, demography and conservation of Golden Langur Trachypithecus geei in an isolated habitat of Kakoijana Reserve forest, Assam, India

Abstract: We studied the population status of Phayre's langur (Trachypithecus phayrei) in the Sepahijala Wildlife Sanctuary (23°37′N to 23°42′N and 91°17′E to 91°21′E), West Tripura district,


The Golden Langur and the Manas Sanctuaries
Although first noted by E. O. Shebbeare in 1907, the golden langur monkey Presbytis geei was only named and described after E. P. Gee had found and photographed it in 1953 on the east bank of the
Golden langur – distribution confusion
I refer to the item published in Oryx (25,124). The golden langur Presbytis geei is found in Bhutan and India's Assam state only. So the Indo-Bhutan or Assam-Bhutan boundary implies the same area.
The social control of fertility
The ability of social factors to exert such control over reproduction in primates is probably related to the development of the neocortex in the brain, including the hypothalamus.
