The Endemic Uganda Mangabey, Lophocebus ugandae, and Other Members of the Albigena-Group (Lophocebus)

  author={Colin P. Groves},
Abstract: Revising the grey-cheeked mangabeys (Lophocebus albigena group) in the light of the Phylogenetic Species Concept reveals more taxonomic diversity than was formerly suspected. The three subspecies recognized by Groves (1978) are diagnosably distinct, and are here upgraded to species rank. Most significantly, the mangabeys of Uganda, not recognized as distinct at all in the 1978 revision, are now shown to constitute a fourth species, Lophocebus ugandae (Matschie, 1912), which is… Expand
Additional molecular evidence strongly supports the distinction between the recently described African primate Rungwecebus kipunji (Cercopithecidae, Papionini) and Lophocebus.

Mating Tactics in Male Grey-Cheeked Mangabeys (Lophocebus albigena)
The behaviours of male grey-cheeked mangabeys towards other males, and females and theiroffspring in relation to male status and group composition in Kibale National Park, Uganda are described. Expand
Do Dispersing Monkeys Follow Kin? Evidence from Gray-cheeked Mangabeys (Lophocebus albigena)
It is suggested that the demographic conditions that allow kin-biased dispersal to evolve do not occur in mangabeys, may be unusual among primates, and are worth further attention. Expand

Assessment and preservation of liquid and frozen-thawed Black crested mangabey (Lophocebus aterrimus) spermatozoa obtained by transrectal ultrasonic-guided massage of the accessory sex glands and electroejaculation.
This study was the first in which there was evaluation of sperm variables in this species and, although this study is limited by the number of animals, it provides background information for further studies using assisted reproductive technologies. Expand
Forest disturbance and cropping mixtures influence crop raiding by red-tailed monkey and grey-cheeked mangabey around Mabira Forest Reserve, Uganda.
Communities around protected areas frequently complain of wild animals destroying already limited crop fields, with little or no assistance offered by conservation stewards towards the mitigation ofExpand
Primate Taxonomy: Inflation or Real?*
This article reviews changes in primate taxonomy, especially those pertaining to the meaning of the term species, since its inception two and a half centuries ago, and provides examples of how the old way of thinking about species hampered the authors' understanding of primate biodiversity and how the phylogenetic species concept has clarified matters.

Phylogenetic and population systematics of the Mangabeys (primates: Cercopithecoidea)
It is concluded that recently published claims based on blood proteins that the Mangabeys are diphletic are valid, and it is proposed to divide them into two distinct genera:Cercocebus (with three species):torquatus (includingatys),agilis, andgaleritus), which belongs to the Cercocebini but has a somewhat isolated position in this tribe.

Toward a phylogenetic classification of Primates based on DNA evidence complemented by fossil evidence.
A provisional primate classification based on DNA evidence and the time scale provided by fossils and the model of local molecular clocks has all named taxa represent clades and assigns the same taxonomic rank to those clades of roughly equivalent age. Expand
