Habitat loss, hunting and the pet trade have caused significant reductions in the original distribution of spider monkeys (Ateles spp.) in the Neotropics. Mexico harbors the northernmost distribution of this primate in the Neotropics, and information on the current location of remnant populations and on their demographic features in particularly scarce. In this paper we report the results of a month-long survey during the dry season of a population of spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi vellerosus… CONTINUE READING
