In this paper we develop population models to use the kind of data on wild primates that primatologists actually collect. Our survey of recentprimate journals suggests that the average field study uses 1.5 years of data from 50 animals The models are based on the simple Leslie-Lefkovitch matrix. They suggest a simple method that allows assessment from a few years'data, of whether a population is… CONTINUE READING
