A REVISION OF THE 1990 IUCN LIST OF
THREATENED ANIMALS

The IUCN Species Survival Programme, led by
Simon N.Stuart, is carrying out a revision of the
species and subspecies of the 1990 Red List of
Threatened Animals, in collaboration with Brian
Groombridge, Coordinator of
the Animals Programme at the CURRENT (1
World Conservation Monitoring NEOTRO
Centre, Cambridge, England. CALLITRICHIDAE
The deadline for the revision is Callimico goel
31 December 1993, so that it Callithrix arge

Simon Stuart has specifically requested PSG
members to contribute to the revision.

Anthony Rylands, Co-Vice Chairman for the
Neotropical Section of the PSG, has drafted a
preliminary revision concerning the South
American primates, and Ernesto Rodriguez Luna is


currently preparing a report for the Mesoamerican
region. The modifications suggested by Rylands
were prepared from the available literature
concerning the conservation status and taxonomy
of the species and subspecies. 1) Following the
studies of Skinner (1991) and Moore and Cheverud
(1992), Saguinus o.geoffroyi should be considered
a distinct species and S.oedipus oedipus should,
therefore, be listed as a species (see p. 4). 2)
Following the taxonomic revision of Callithrix by
de Vivo (1991; see also Mittermeier et al., 1992),
all forms of Callithrix should
CN LIST FOR be listed as species. 3)

A PROPOSAL FOR
OF THE MURIQUI
ESPIRITO SANTC
BRAZIL


THE CONSERVATION
IN THE STATE OF
). SOUTHEASTERN


The muriqui, Brachyteles arachnoides, the largest
of the Neotropical primates, is endemic to the
Brazilian Atlantic forest, occurring from the state
of Bahia south to the state of Sao Paulo. The
majority of its populations have disappeared as a
result of drastic deforestation and hunting, and it is
today highly threatened with extinction. Except
for the large tracts of forest along the "Serra do
Mar" in the south-east of the state of Sao Paulo,
surviving populations of muriquis are restricted to
small forest fragments with an uncertain future and
subject to the deleterious effects of endogamy (see
Mittermeier et al., 1987). Recent studies have
confirmed that the muriqui populations in the state
of Sao Paulo are genetically different to those in
the northern part of its range, at least in the state of
Minas Gerais, where they live in more fragmented
habitats, arguing for the urgent need for the

Neotropical Primates 1(2), June 1993


preservation of these populations as well as those
in the state of Espirito Santo to the east.

In his classic work on the muriqui, Aguirre (1971)
mentioned the occurrence of isolated groups in
some localities in Espirito Santo. These included a
highly threatened population (40-50 individuals) at
Brejetuba, municipality of Afonso Claudio, and at
the C6rrego SAo Fernando, municipality of
Domingos Martins (7-8 individuals). We have been
unable to confirm the continued survival of these
populations. Aguirre (1971) also reported the
existence of 10-12 muriquis at Barra
Encoberta, and a further 7-8 individuals at
Jatibocas, both in the municipality of Itarana.
Scott Lindbergh (pers.comm.) recently (
confirmed the continued survival of a group
at the latter locality (cited in Mendes, 1991),
and we have also received reliable reports of
the species' presence in privately-owned
forests in the municipalities of Santa Teresa,
Santa Leopoldina, and Domingos Martins,
the last a 400 ha forest in the Fazenda Belon,
4 km south-east of the Pedra Azul State Park
(993 ha) (Mendes, 1991). Muriquis are also
known to exist in the Capara6 National Park
(on the border with the state of Minas Gerais;
16,194 ha) and Augusto Ruschi Biological
Reserve (formerly Nova Lombardia; c. 4,000
ha) (see Fig.1). In the latter the population
density is extremely low, but the area is
relatively well protected. The Capara6
National Park is larger (although not all
forested), and undoubtedly a very important
area for muriquis, although its legal status F
has yet to be resolved, it remains largely
unprotected, and suffers from hunting. Lo
mu
The uncertain future of the small and isolated Ru
populations in private-lands argues for a ow
management plan involving confirmation of 6 -
the size and composition of remaining
groups, and their translocation to such areas as the
Augusto Ruschi Biological Reserve, which could
undoubtedly support higher numbers than are
found at present. Valuable information could also
be obtained concerning the species' morphology
and genetics. This proposal would obviously
involve educational campaigns so that local
landowners can be made aware of the objectives
and value of these measures. A program of this
sort is technically difficult and evidently subject to
risks. The remaining populations in the state of
Bahia are practically extinct (no confirmed
localities exist today), and those in Minas Gerais


are few, small, and isolated, and we argue that
such measures are unavoidable and urgently
needed in order to prevent the disappearance of the
muriqui in the state of Espirito Santo in the very
near future, and to contribute to the preservation of
this remarkable animal in the northern part of its
range encompassing these three states.

THE BARE-FACE TAMARINS SAGUINUS
OEDIPUS OEDIPUS AND SA GUINUS OEDIPUS
GEOFFROYI: SUBSPECIES OR SPECIES?

Hershkovitz (1977) divided the tamarins, genus
Saguinus, into three sections hairy-face
(including the S.nigricollis group, S.mystax group,
and the S.midas group), mottled-face (S.inustus),
and bare-face (S.bicolor group and S.oedipus
group). The two groups of bare face tamarins are
recognized by three independent features: 1) they
occur north of the Rio Amazonas; 2) they diverged
independently from hairy-face tamarins and; 3)
they attained a grade of facial depilation that
distinguishes them collectively or individually from
other callitrichids. The Saguinus bicolor group
(comprising three subspecies north of the Rio
Amazonas and east of the Rio Negro in Brazil) are
believed to have evolved from a hairy-face ancestor
south of the Rio Amazonas-Solim6es, west of the
Rio Madeira, due to a river bend cut-off isolating
them to the north of the Rio Amazonas-Solim6es.
Following Hershkovitz (1977), the Saguinus
oedipus group comprises the Colombian and
Panamanian/Costa Rican bare-faced tamarins,
Saguinus oedipus oedipus (cotton-top tamarin),
Saguinus oedipus geoffroyi (the red-crested bare-
face tamarin or rufous-naped tamarin), and
Saguinus leucopus (silvery-brown bare-face
tamarin). Based on his presumption that S.oedipus
represents the "culmination of an evolutionary line
of tamarins that diverged from a hairy-face
ancestor of the upper Amazonian region" (p.753),
Hershkovitz argued that a divergent stock must
have spread north along the eastern Andes and
filtered into the valley between the Cordilleras
Central and Oriental,and west into Panama and
Central America giving rise today to S.leucopus
and S.oedipus (including subspecies oedipus and
geoffroyi). Sleucopus is described by Hershkovitz
(1977) as a hairy-cheeked quasi-bare-face species
preserving most of the intermediate characters
connecting S.oedipus with hairy-face tamarins.
S.o.geoffroyi (Colombian Choco, Panama and
bordering parts of Costa Rica) is considered to be
more primitive than S.o.oedipus (tropical lowlands


isolated between the Rios Atrato and Cauca-
Magdalena). Hershkovitz's arguments regarding
the evolution of these forms and the classification
of the forms oedipus and geoffroyi as subspecies
are based on pelage patterns and coloration, cranial
and mandible morphology, and pinna size.

Mittermeier and Coimbra-Filho (1981; see also
Mittermeier et al., 1988; Rylands et al., 1993) did
not recognize the subspecific status of the two
forms oedipus and geoffroyi, arguing that there is
no evidence of intergradation between them and
that "S.oedipus and S.geoffroyi are at least as
differentiated from one another as are the members
of the Callithrix jacchus group" (which they also
argued to be valid species), and following the
suggestion of Thorington (1976) that the cotton-top
tamarin was more closely related to S./eucopus
than to S.geoffroyi. Thorington (1976: p.13)
expressed the hope that Hershkovitz's 1977
monograph would test his hypothesis but it did not,
and the question remained open until the
publication of some recent articles reporting on
independent studies of body weights and the
morphology of the three tamarins.

Tsunehiko Hanihara and Masahito Natori of the
Jichi Medical School, Japan, followed
Hershkovitz's (1977) classification in their
examination of the dental morphology of
S.fuscicollis, S.nigricollis, S.labiatus, S.mystax,
S.leucopus and S.oedipus (Hanihara and Natori,
1987). Multivariate analysis of their measurements
grouped the moustached tamarins (S.labiatus and
S.mystax), the saddleback and black-mantle
tamarins (S.fuscicollis and S.nigricollis), and the
bare-face tamarins (S.leucopus and S.oedipus).
However, their comparison of S.o.geoffroyi and
S.o.oedipus showed that although they are similar,
they are more different to each other than are the
components of the pairs S.fuscicollislS.nigricollis
and S.mystaxlS.labiatus, and for this reason they
argued that they should be considered distinct
species, a taxonomy adopted in their subsequent
publications (Natori and Hanihara, 1988, 1992).

Carol Skinner (1991), of the Edinboro University
of Pennsylvania, examined differences in body
weight and morphological characters, comprising
four body (tail, head and body, hind foot and ear)
and 13 cranial and dental measurements.
S.geoffroyi (486 g, N = 53) were found to be
significantly larger than S.oedipus (406 g, N = 23),
and morphologically more similar to S.leucopus
than to S.oedipus in 16 of the 17 morphological

Neotropical Primates 1(2), June 1993


characters studied. Likewise, S.oedipus was more
similar to S.leucopus than to S.geoffroyi in 11 of
the 17 traits. Skinner also discussed the pelage
coloration and patterns of the three forms
(emphasizing the differences rather than the
similarities demonstrated by Hershkovitz, 1977),
along with aspects concerning hybridization and
intergradation in Saguinus in general.

Allen Moore (University of Kentucky, Lexington)
and James Cheverud (Washington University
School of Medicine, St.Louis) also gave specific
attention to the taxonomic affinity of the bare-face
tamarins, examining their facial morphology
(Moore and Cheverud, 1992). Quoting these
authors (p.73) "...A variety of multivariate
statistical analyses including discriminant function
and cluster analysis suggest that S.oedipus and
S.geoffroyi differ morphologically at a level
consistent with species-level distinctions. The
extent of differences between these taxa is large..."
and later "...a comparison of collecting localities
revealed that the variation we observed among
S.oedipus and S.geoffroyi was not clinal but
presented a large morphological discontinuity at
the boundary between taxa...". Like Skinner
(1991), they found that S.leucopus was more
similar to S.oedipus than either is to S.geoffroyi.
Differences between S.oedipus and S.geoffroyi
were much greater than those between S.fuscicollis
subspecies (Cheverud and Moore, 1990).

skin and skull in the Gurupiana village of the
Ka'apor indians in the Alto Turiaqu Indian
Reserve, cast bank of the Rio Gurupi in the state of
Maranhao (02040'S, 4620'W), given as the
paratype locality (preserved in the zoological
collection of the Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi,
Belm, Para, MPEG 21978). A holotype locality
was established later, in August 1991, through the
collection of a juvenile female (skeleton and stuffed
skin MPEG' 22025) from Quadrant 7, 10 kmn
southwest of the Chega-Tudo Prospection
(02030'S, 47030'W) (Carutapera, Maranhao), near
the right bank of the Rio Gurupi. Queiroz (1992)
describes the principal features of this new species
as follows: "the longest bodied untufted species of
capuchin monkey, with a silvery agouti mantle and
silvery grey shoulders and tip of tail. Arms and
hindlimbs agouti. Hands and feet black and dark
brown. Triangular black cap at crown with a black
stripe down to nose. Forehead and face slivery grey
and beige. Occurring south of Amazonas river,
possibly restricted to the area between Gurupi and
Pindard rivers in Maranhao State, Brazil."

Subsequent expeditions to check on the distribution
of the ka'apor capuchin revealed that it is today
probably restricted the region between the Rios
Gurupi and Pindare, with the northeastern limit
being defined by the border of the Amazonian
lowland forest within the "cocais" ecosystem of
middle Maranhao, extending at some points to the
eastern bank of the Rio Pindard in its middle
reaches, west of the locality Santa Luzia. The
northern limit lies south of Maracaqum6, in the
basin of the Rio Maracaqumd, and the southern
limit is defined by the northernmost forests of
Buriticup6. It is not definitely known to occur west
of the Rio Gurupi, although some interviews with
local inhabitants 5-10 km to the west of the river
suggested it might. It would seem that it certainly
occurred west of the Rio Gurupi in the past,
possibly as far as the Rio Amazonas, to the Rio
Tocantins. In 1906, Emilio Goeldi and G.Hagmann
recorded six capuchin monkey specimens in the
Museu Goeldi collection from the Rios Acarn and
Capim, which they referred to as Cebus capucinus,
but with a description similar to that of Cebus
kaapori. These specimens have unfortunately been
lost. Of interest too is a specimen, not recorded by
Queiroz (1992) but probably belonging to this
species, obtained by A.B.M.Machado (Federal
University of Minas Gerais) and Pe.F.S.Pereira


(University of Sao Paulo) from the market in
Belm, Para, but originating from the Rio Gurupi,
Maranhao (A.B.M.Machado, unpubl.data). The
animal was identified by C.da Cunha Vieira, and
listed by Machado (1963) as an adult female Cebus
nigrivittalus. The skin was deposited in the
Museum of Zoology of Sao Paulo.

Queiroz (1992) argued that the present known
distribution of approximately 15,000 km2 is one of
the smallest known ranges of Amazonian cebids.
The range of Ckaapori encompasses the Gurupi
Biological Reserve, and the Camn and Alto Turiaqu
indian reserves. It is however hunted in these
reserves, which are also subject to continuing
degradation due to logging, deforestation, squatters
and goldminers. Certainly its known range is
within one of the most devastated regions of the
Amazon. In addition to these threats, the entire
area is undergoing a recent and active process of
colonization and industrialization being as it is
within the Greater CarajAs development program,
and traversed by the Carajais railroad and
numerous highways. Queiroz (1992) concluded
that C.kaapori is a threatened species. The
endangered black saki, Chiropotes satanas satanas
has a similar distribution although extending north
and west to the Rio Amazonas and Rio Tocantins.
The widespread destruction of the forests of the
region would indicate that C.kaapori should also
be considered endangered.

The principle argument used by Queiroz (1992) for
the species status of C.kaapori is its disjunct
distribution, C.olivaceus being restricted to the
north of the Rio Amazonas. However, as
mentioned above, he also presents evidence for its
(likely) occurrence in the past as far as Beldm, and
presumably the Rio Tocantins. Queiroz argued
that speciation processes are likely to have
occurred due to its isolation by the Rio Amazonas,
although at least two other primate species traverse
the lower Rio Amazonas without any evident
speciation or subspeciation: Cebus apella and
Saimiri sciureus. Other differences which Queiroz
cited to reinforce his case for the species status of
the ka'apor capuchin include pelage coloration, and
his impression, based on the single adult measured,
that Ckaapori is "longer-bodied and less robust
than other untufted species" (p.9). Queiroz (1992)
concluded that "there is little to separate the
species on the basis of external and craniometric
and morphological characteristics" (p.9), although
his measurements of the maximum cranial length
of five adult male C.olivaceus indicated that it is


Page 6





Neotropical Primates 1(2), June 1993


larger than the other untufted species, including
C.kaapori, and possibly indicative of a degree of
divergence of the two forms. The evidence for the
species' status of C.kaapori is slim. Resolution of
the question of whether it is a valid species or not
will depend on a taxonomic revision of the
untufted group of the genus, along with a wider
range of morphological measurements on
additional individuals.

LEGAL PROTECTION FOR
ATLANTIC COASTAL FOREST


BRAZIL'S


The Atlantic Coastal forest once stretched
uninterrupted along the eastern coast of Brazil
from the north-east to the far south in the state of
Rio Grande do Sul. Definitions of its limits are
controversial, but the broadest include the humid
evergreen forests along the coast, deciduous and
semi-deciduous forests inland in the south and
south-east, the Araucaria pine forests and upland
Lauraceae forests in the south, as well as the
coastal scrub forest restingga, mangrove swamps
and forests, and savanna and moorland enclaves.
In the past, the area covered by the Atlantic forest
exceeded 1,000,000 km2, more than 12% of the
area of Brazil (Rizzini and Coimbra-Filho, 1988;
CAmara, 1991).

In 1990, it received complete legal protection, with
the publication of a short Presidential Decree NO
99.547, dated 25th September 1990. It succinctly
prohibited, for an undetermined period, the cutting
and exploitation of the native vegetation of the
Atlantic forest, and delegated responsibility to the
Brazilian Institute for the Environment and
Renewable Natural Resources (Ibama) for the
rigorous fiscalization of existing projects in the


area. This Decree put the onus on each of the State
Superintendencies of Ibama to define the areas of
Atlantic forest in their respective states, a cause of
some consternation and considerable argument. It
was later revoked by Decree NO 750, dated 10
February 1993 (published in the Diario Oficial da
Unido 11 February 1993), which provided a more
detailed and considered legal basis for the
exploitation of the natural resources of the Atlantic
forest. The first article prohibits the cutting,
exploitation or suppression of primary vegetation
or forest in middle to advanced stages of
regeneration, unless under special circumstances
(development projects of public use or social
interest), with the express permission of the
environmental agency of the respective State, and
prior approval by Ibama and the National
Environment Council (CONAMA), following due
studies and an environmental impact report. The
second article states that selective exploitation of
certain native species may be carried out under the
following conditions: 1) that it in no way affects
species other than those to be exploited; 2) that
previous studies should be carried out concerning
stocks and the guaranteed survival of the species
involved; 3) the area involved and the maximum
annual harvest should be defined and; 4) prior
authorization from the relevant state organization.
A complementary clause states that the
requirements of this article do not apply to the use
of plant species within the properties of traditional
human populations, which however remains
dependant on due authorization from the relevant
state organization. The 3rd Article defines the
Atlantic forest as follows: forest formations and
associated ecosystems within the limits defined by
the 1988 map of the Brazilian Institute for
Geography and Statistics (IBGE) Dense, mixed
and open ombrophilous Atlantic forest, seasonal
deciduous and semi-deciduous forest, mangroves,
coastal scrub and scrub forest restingga, high
altitude moorland (campos de altitude), humid
forest enclaves in the north-east (brejos). Article 4
determines that the suppression or exploitation of
secondary vegetation in early stages of
regeneration will be regulated by Ibama, with due
consideration given to the respective state
environment institutes and councils and the
National Environment Council (CONAMA). A
complementary clause says that this Article does
not apply to states having 5% or less of the original
area covered by Atlantic forest, and that in these
cases all vegetation considered to form part of the
Atlantic forest ecosystems defined in Article 3 are
subject to the regulations in Article 1. Article 5

provides the restrictions regarding the provision of
permission for urban projects or the use of soils in
areas of secondary vegetation in medium or
advanced stages of succession. Any project
presented must conform to the development plan of
the municipality and the existing legislation
concerning environmental protection, and must
have prior consent from the relevant state
organization, with the conditions that: 1) the area
does not include plant or animal species considered
threatened with extinction; 2) the area plays no
role in protecting springs or in the control of
erosion and; 3) the area has no exceptional scenic
value. Article 6 states that the definition of primary
vegetation, and secondary
vegetation in early, middle and PRIMATES
late stages of succession will be COA
carried out by Ibama, in Callithrix aurita
consultation with the state Callithrixflavice
environmental organizations, to Callithrixjacchu
be subsequently approved by Callithrix kuhli
CONAMA. A complementary Callithrix geoffr
clause determines that any Leontopithecus r
intervention involving primary Leontopithecus c
forest or forest in late or middle Leontopithecus c
successional stages is Leontopithecus c
prohibited until Ibama have Callicebus perso.
provided their legal definition. Callicebus perso.
Article 7 provides for the total Callicebus perso
protection of vegetation which Callicebus perso
harbours animal or plant Cebus apella libi
species threatened with Cebus apella xan
extinction, or which acts as a Cebus apella rob
corridor between primary Cebus apella nig
forests or those which are Alouattafuscafu
considered to be in late or Alouattafusca cl
middle successional stages, or Brachyteles arac
which serve to protect areas Brachyteles arac
around conservation units, as
well as areas of permanent preservation determined
by Articles 2 and 3 of Law NO 4771 of 15
September 1965. Article 8 states that areas of
primary forest or forest in middle or late
successional stages will maintain their status as
such even if burnt or cut illegally. Article 9 gives
CONAMA the administrative responsibility for any
decisions arising from the Decree, according to the
terms of Article 8, part III, of Law NO 6938 of 31
August 1981. Article 10 states that all current or
future enterprises which do not conform with the
determinations of the decree must inform the
relevant authorities of their activities within five
days. According to Article 11, fiscalization of the
existing development projects within the Atlantic
forest will be coordinated by Ibama in conjunction


with the relevant state authorities. Infractions will
be dealt with by the National Environment System
(SISNAMA) and will involve a) the application of
relevant administrative sanctions; b) an immediate
report to the Public Ministry for police and civic
inquiries for penal action and; c) a report to the
relevant council governing the professional
activities of those responsible for the project and
the infraction according to the specific legislation.
Article 12 determines that the Ministry of the
Environment will carry out measures to ensure
rigorous compliance with the determinations of the
Decree, and will stimulate technical and scientific
studies with a view to the conservation and rational
management of the Atlantic
E ATLANTIC forest and its biodiversity. The
OREST final two articles determine
the immediate application of
the decree as from 11
February 1993 (Article 13),
and revoke the fonuer Decree
N 99547 of 25 September
1990.
'elas
ygus This decree is evidently a
considerable improvement on
ersonatus the first, providing as it does
igrifrons some leeway for a more
ielanochir rational approach to the
arbarabrownae protection of the remains of
s the Atlantic forest, with the
'nos underlying theme being one
of biodiversity and ecosystem
conservation coupled with the
elusive concept of sustainable
s development for the region.
s arachnoides The complexity and variety of
s hypoxanthus the ecosystems included


within the Atlantic forest
means that the task, still pending, ,of defining the
concepts of primary forest systems, and the late,
middle, and early successional stages (Article 6),
will not be an easy one. The tendency for regional
definitions depends on an adequate mapping (and
ground-truthing), and is unfortunately very much
subject to whim and political/economical pressures
in each state. In addition, there is at present
considerable controversy regarding the definition
of "traditional populations" (Article 2). However,
the single most dramatic issue is the almost
complete lack of wherewithal on the part of the
federal (Ibama) and state governments to enforce
the decree, and its norms and restrictions.
Widespread forest destruction continues unchecked
in such important areas as southern Bahia,

PSG MEMBER RECEIVES
AUDUBON SOCIETY AWARD


FLORIDA


The 1993 Latin American Conservation Award of
the Florida Audubon Society was presented to
Ilmar Santos, member of the SSC Primate
Specialist Group and Edentate Specialist Group,
and an IUCN Regional Member for Brazil. Ilmar
Santos, a former trainee of the Training Program
of the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust, Jersey (in
1984), began his career working on the
conservation of the Atlantic forest primates,
especially the muriqui, Brachyteles arachnoides,
under the supervision of Prof. C61io Valle, also a
PSG member, at the Department of Zoology,
Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG). Since
1982 he has coordinated numerous expeditions and
faunal inventories in the Atlantic forest region of
the south-east, as well in the caatinga and cerrado
of north-east and central Brazil. The focus was
always threatened and endangered species.
Notable were two expeditions in 1986-87 with
William Oliver (then of the Jersey Wildlife
Preservation Trust) to the Atlantic forest of Bahia
and Espirito Santo, concentrating on an evaluation
of the conservation status and distribution of the
thin-spined porcupine, Chaetomys subspinosus, but
including data on Sphiggurus insidiosus, as well as
primates and sloths. The project was financed by
the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust, Wildlife
Preservation Trust International, Philadelphia, the
Program for Studies in Tropical Conservation of
the University of Florida, Gainesville, and the
World Wildlife Fund, Washington, D.C. As a
result of these expeditions, Oliver and Santos drew
attention to the plight of Cebus apella
xanthosternos and C.a.robustus. Through their
efforts, and in collaboration with Adelmar


Coimbra-Filho and Alcides Pissinatti of the Rio de
Janeiro Primate Center, and Jean-Marc Lernould of
Mulhouse Zoo, France, C.a.xanthosternos now has
a captive breeding program, and an International
Committee for the management of both subspecies
was created by Ibama in 1992, of which Ilmar
Santos is Co-Chairman (see below). He is also a
member of the International Committee for the
golden-headed lion tamarin, Leontopithecus
chrysomelas. His research has provided important
contributions to our knowledge of the status and
distribution of this animal, and he played a key role
in the purchase of additional forests for the
consolidation of the Una Biological Reserve. More
recently, Ilmar has carried out pioneer work on the
three-banded armadillo, Tolypeutes tricinctus, in
the caatinga of inland Bahia. His research on the
ecology, distribution and status of this endangered
species was financed by Conservation International
and World Wildlife Fund-US, and is the subject of
his research thesis for a Master's degree at UFMG
to be completed this year. In 1988, Ilmar formed
part of the team which created the Fundacgo
Biodiversitas, Belo Horizonte, already today a
leading Brazilian non-governmental organization
for the conservation of Brazilian species and their
natural ecosystems. Formerly head of the Science
Department, Ilmar is now Director of the
Foundation. The Florida Audubon Society Award
was presented to Ilmar Santos by Dr Peter
Pritchard, world expert on turtles and Vice-
President of the Society, at a special ceremony on
the 13th April in Belo Horizonte. It is reserved for
young Latin American conservationists who have
shown great promise, evidenced by remarkable
achievements, in their early careers. We
congratulate the Society for their recognition of
Ilmar's highly significant contribution to our
knowledge of Brazilian mammals and their
conservation.


1ST MEETING OF THE INTERNATIONAL
COMMITTEE FOR CEBUS APELLA
XANTHOSTERNOS AND CEBUS APELLA
ROBUSTUS

The International Recovery and Management
Committee for the yellow-breasted capuchin
(C.a.xanthosternos) and the robust tufted capuchin
(C.a.robustus), was created by the Brazilian
Institute for the Environment and Natural
Renewable Resources (Ibama) on the 16 October
1992, Edict NO 111 (see Neotropical Primates, 1,


Page 9







Neotropical Primates 1(Q), June 1993 Page 10


NO 1). The Co-Chairmen, Ilmar Santos (Fundaaio
Biodiversitas) and Jean-Marc Lernould (Mulhouse
Zoo), called the first meeting of the Committee in
Belo Horizonte on the 14th April 1993, which was
attended by the following members: Adelmar
Coimbra-Filho (Centro de Primatologia do Rio de
Janeiro CPRJ/FEEMA), Alcides Pissinatti
(CPRJ/FEEMA), Russell A. Mittermeier
(Conservation International, Washington, D.C.),
Maria lolita Bampi (Ibama), and Fernando
Dal'Ava (Ibama). Luiz Paulo de Souza Pinto and
Anthony Rylands, both of the Federal University of
Minas Gerais, were invited to attend as technical
consultants. Rosemary de Carvalho (Ibama)
secretaried the meeting, the first part of which was
dedicated to the elaboration of the committee
regulations, as well as the Management Agreement
and Terms of Responsibility for the institutions
involved in the captive breeding program already
established for Ca.xanthosternos (based on those
for the similar committees for the lion tamarins).

At present the breeding program includes the Rio
de Janeiro Primate Center (CPRJ/FEEMA) with 20
animals, and the Mulhouse Zoo, France, with five.
Two individuals are also being held at the Rio de
Janeiro Zoo (on loan from CPRJ). The program
will be extended to include Chester Zoo, England,
and Zurich Zoo, Switzerland, based on the
availability of 16 animals at CPRJ, to reduce their
stock to four and enable the recovery of further
animals being kept as pets in southern Bahia.

Anthony Rylands presented a summary of the
available data on the distribution of
C.a.xanthosternos, and Luiz Paulo de Souza Pinto
of his findings concerning its distribution and
status in southern Bahia. A plan of action for
C.a.xanthosternos was then discussed with the
following priorities: Captive program. The
establishment of an international program in Brazil
and Europe, involving in the initial stages the
institutions mentioned above. Alcides Pissinatti
was elected studbook keeper. Wild populations.
The establishment of a research program on
C.a.xanthosternos, focussing on aspects of its
conservation biology (population densities, habitat
preference, ecology and behavior), along with an
environmental education campaign aimed at local
landowners, and linked with the successful
program of Maria Cristina Alves (Fundagio Pau
Brasil, Itabuna), already underway for the golden-
headed lion tamarin (Leontopithecus chrysomelas).
It was decided that a proposal (action plan) should
be drawn up and submitted to the New World


Primate Taxon Advisory Group (TAG) of the
American Association of Zoological Parks and
Aquariums (AAZPA) (chaired by Anne Baker,
Burnet Park Zoo, Syracuse), as a first step to obtain
financing. C.a.xanthosternos is already on the
Brazilian Official List of Fauna Threatened with
Extinction (Edict NO 1522/19 December 1989),
and Anthony Rylands informed that the SSC
Primate Specialist Group was considering a
proposal for the inclusion of this subspecies, as
well as C.a.robustus, on the IUCN List of
Threatened Animals currently under revision (see
p.1). A proposal will also be submitted for the
inclusion of C.a.robustus on the Brazilian List.
Finally, Anthony Rylands and Roland Wirth
(Zoological Society for the Conservation of Species
and Populations, Munich) were elected as full
members of the Committee.

A SYMPOSIUM ON LION TAMARIN
CONSERVATION AND ECOLOGY

A one-day symposium on the ecology and
conservation of the four lion tamarin species,
organized by Devra Kleiman and In8s Castro
(Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program of
the National Zoological Park, Washington, D.C.),
was held on the 18th May 1993 at the Education
Center of the Pogo das Antas Biological Reserve,
Rio de Janeiro. The symposium consisted of a
remarkable and successful marathon of 28 talks,
each of 10 minutes, in the presence of a significant
sample of the people currently involved in
conservation and research of lion tamarins.

Ibsen de GusmAo Cimara began the symposium by
presenting a review of the principal threats to the
survival of the black-headed lion tamarin
(Leontopithecus caissara). New information on
the geographic distribution and wild status was
presented for L.rosalia (golden lion tamarins -
GLT) in Rio de Janeiro (Cecilia Kierulff, Ricardo
J.L.Medeiros), L.chrysomelas (golden-headed lion
tamarins GHLT) in southern Bahia (Luiz Paulo
de Souza Pinto), L.chrysopygus (black lion
tamarins BLT) in Sdo Paulo (ClAudio PAdua,
Laury Cullen, Ana Carolina Mamede), and the

black-headed lion tamarin (BHLT) in Parana
(Maria Lucia Lorini and Vanessa G.Persson), and
Sao Paulo (MArcia Gongalves Rodrigues, Paulo
Martuscelli, Ricardo Ribeiro de Mendonga Jr).
Reports were also given on current projects
focussing on public relations and environmental
education. Suzana PAdua (BLT), Maria Cristina
Alves and Gabriel dos Santos (GHLT), and Lou
Ann Dietz and Denise Rambaldi (GLT)
summarized their respective environmental
education projects centred on the Morro do Diabo
State Park, the forests of southern Bahia, and the
Poco das Antas Biological Reserve, respectively.
Kate Bramante described an incipient but highly
promising scheme to promote ecotourism, based on
the GLTs reintroduced in forest patches in farms
surrounding the Poco da Antas Reserve in Rio de
Janeiro. Although studies have yet to be carried out
which focus directly on the ecology of BHLTs,
Waldir Mantovani, MArcia Rodrigues and Paulo
Martuscelli were able to report on their
considerable progress concerning the
characterization and extent of available habitat for
these animals in the state of SAo Paulo. Fernando
de Camargo Passos summarized some of his results
on the feeding ecology of BLTs in the Caetetfis
State Reserve, SAo Paulo, which formed part of a
recently completed master's thesis for the State
University of Campinas, supervised by Cory C.T.de
Carvalho. Of note was his finding of the seasonal
importance of plant exudates. Paulo Martuscelli
described a remarkable association between an
orchid (Vanilla sp.) and the black-lion tamarin,
involving the consumption of the capsules by the
tamarins and their probable dispersal of the seeds.
In8s Castro presented her results regarding
reactions of captive lion tamarins to aerial (a
hawk) and terrestrial (snake) predators, involving
flight in the former and mobbing in the latter.

Research projects on the wild groups of GLTs in
the Poco das Antas Reserve were presented by;
Elaine Ribeiro, who is completing her study on the
use of hormonal analyses of faeces as a non-
intrusive method to accompany physiological
changes in females; Andrew Baker, who reviewed
the social system in terms of group composition,
breeding patterns, and dispersal and; James Dietz
who discussed the data concerning seasonal
variation in reproduction, juvenile weight gain and
adult body weight, and its relation to seasonality
and annual variation in resources. Finally, Paula
Oliveira reported on her studies of succession and
small mammal communities following fires in the
Reserve, and Devra Kleiman presented an


overview of the current research projects of the
Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program
(National Zoological Park, Washington D.C.),
including besides those mentioned above, the re-
introduction program, and research on
communication and locomotion. The last session
reviewed the situation of, and prospects for, the
captive populations of GLTs (Jon Ballou,
International Studbook keeper), and GHLTs
(Jeremy Mallinson, International Studbook keeper
and Helga de Bois, responsible for the European
populations of lion tamarins), and last of all
Alcides Pissinatti reviewed veterinary aspects,
particularly concerning the diagnosis of causes of
mortality.

The following two days were dedicated to meetings
of the International Committees for the four lion
tamarin species. These committees were
established by the Brazilian Institute for the
Environment and Renewable Natural Resources
(Ibama) to discuss and advise on issues concerning
the management of captive and wild populations,
as well as research projects and any issues which
directly or indirectly affect their conservation
status. The working document which provides the
directions and guidelines for these committees was
produced during the Population Viability
Workshop on Leontopithecus, held in Belo
Horizonte in June 1990, and sponsored by the
Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust, World Wildlife
Fund-US, Ibama, Fundaqio Biodiversitas and
Conservation International. It was published by the
SSC/Captive Breeding Specialist Group, chaired by
Ulysses S.Seal (Seal et al., 1990). The report
includes specific proposals for future action
concerning conservation measures for the lion
tamarin species. These were reasonably complete
for GLTs, GHLTs, and BLTs, but lacking
sufficient data for BHLTs, which had only very
recently been discovered. As a result, one of the
main themes for this, the first, meeting for BHLTs
was the elaboration of an action plan based on the
considerable amount of data now available
concerning their distribution and status in the wild.
For the other species, the action plans were
reviewed in terms of the progress which had been
achieved since the Workshop, and the conclusion
that the large majority of the recommendations had
been addressed, and that quite a number had even
been resolved, was the cause of some satisfaction
amongst the committee members.

Credit must be given not only to Ibama for the
initiative, but also to the Committee chairs: GHLT

- Jeremy Mallinson (Jersey Wildlife Preservation
Trust) and Adelmar Coimbra-Filho (Centro de
Primatologia do Rio de Janeiro); GLT Devra

DC) and Adelmar Coimbra-Filho; BLT Faiqal
Simon (Fundagqo Parque Zool6gico de Sio Paulo)
and Devra Kleiman; and BHLT Ibsen de Gusmao
CAmara (Fundacao Brasilcira para a Conservagco
da Natureza) and Jeremy Mallinson. There are
now large captive populations of GLTs (a total of
552 animals recorded in the 1991 Studbook;
Ballou, 1992) and GHLTs (472 animals recorded
in the 1992 Studbook; Mace and Mallinson, 1992),
and strategies were discussed to expand the captive
breeding program for BLTs (72 animals recorded
in the 1990 Studbook; Padua and Simon, 1990) to
a number of new institutions outside of Brazil.
There is still no captive program for BHLTs,
although the committee determined that the
establishment of a captive population should be a
priority measure.

Optimism regarding the survival of the disjunct
and small populations of the four lion tamarins,
each with specific and serious problems in
contrasting scenarios in widely differing regions
and habitats, was prevalent (and necessary) during
the symposium and the committee meetings, and
not unfounded considering the large number of
people dedicating their work to the maintenance of
the captive programs, research on the wild
populations, and the resolution of the ever-
worsening threats in the wild.

CENSO E DISTRIBUTION DEL MARIMONO,
ATELES PANISCUS, EN LA ESTACION
BIOLOGICAL BENI, BOLIVIA

Durante el present afio con el apoyo econ6mico de
UNESCO, Paris, en la Reserva de la Bi6sfera
"Estaci6n Biol6gica Beni", Provincias BalliviAn y
Yacuma, Departamento Beni, Bolivia
(66018'30"W, 14o38'00"S), se desarrollara el
proyecto "Censo y distribuci6n de la poblaci6n del
marimono (Ateles paniscus)". En Bolivia
A.p.chamek ha sido poco estudiado y no ha
merecido atenci6n en ningim proyecto especifico,
contAndose con datos de su abundancia,
distribuci6n y su estado de conservaci6n como fruto
de evaluaciones generals sobre la fauna
primatol6gica. Estes monos son usados como
comida caree y obtenci6n de aceite) y como
mascotas por gente local. La caza las ha afectado
en particular; se indica que para la zona de Cobija
y probablemente para toda la region de Pando la
presencia de A.paniscus es rara, porque
aparentemente ha sido cazado hasta extinguirse en
grandes regions. Finalmente la destrucci6n del
habitat constitute tambi6n un factor important,
sufriendo las superficies boscosas una deforestaci6n
constant a causa de asentamientos humans mal
dirigidos hacia las regions tropicales. Desde el
punto de vista de la conservaci6n en Bolivia,
A.paniscus estA considerada como una especie
amenazada, categoria bajo la cual incluyen las
species cuyas poblaciones experimentan
disminuci6n por explotaci6n intensive o
destrucci6n del habitat.

El present studio esta enmarcado dentro de las
acciones prioritarias de studios biol6gicos
intensivos para species en peligro de extinci6n y
de interns econ6mico, entire las que estA
especialmente considerada A.paniscus, a fin de
former las bases t6cnicas y cientificas para el
manejo de recursos. El studio tiene los siguientes
objetivos: 1) establecer el status (distribuci6n y
abundancia) de A.paniscus en la Estaci6n
Biol6gica Beni; 2) conocer la composici6n y
tamafio de los grupos, relacionadas con diferencias
estacionales; y 3) conocer aspects de su
comportamiento y uso vertical del espacio.

FIRST FIELD STUDY OF THE PIED
TAMARIN, SAGUINUS BICOLOR BICOLOR

The pied tamarin is probably the most endangered
of the Amazonian callitrichids, having a very
restricted range centred on Manaus, the capital of
the state of Amazonas. From May 1983 to April
1984, Silvia Egler of the Instituto Nacional de
Pesquisas da Amaz6nia (INPA), carried out a field


study of a group of 6-9 individuals in a small
fenced enclosure of 20 ha of secondary forest in the
grounds of the Tropical Hotel, Manaus. The study
was financed by INPA and the Brazilian Science
Council (CNPq), and presented as a master's
thesis, supervised by Dr Cory C.T.Carvalho, to the
State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Slo
Paulo (Egler, 1986). Part of the study, concerning
feeding ecology, was recently published in volume
59 (1992) of Folia Primatologica. Egler (1992)
listed 21 plant species of 12 families used for food
resources (fruits, flowers and exudates), and
described their characteristics and seasonality in
consumption. She also examined aspects of
ranging behaviour, habitat use (range size was 12
ha), and activity cycles. At the end of the article
Egler discussed the conservation status of the pied
tamarin. S.bicolor occurs in four protected areas:
the Adolfo Ducke Reserve of INPA (10,000 ha);
the Alberto Egler Reserve of INPA (630 ha); the
Ecological Reserve of Sauim-Castanheiras (109
ha); and a small private reserve of the Tropical
Hotel. Egler referred to the problems of small
genetically isolated populations, and the precarious
situation of groups scattered through the suburbs
and surrounding areas of Manaus. Part of her study
area, originally occupied by three groups, was
destroyed by the hotel owners in 1985, and in 1986
she was able to observe only two individuals
remaining there. The forests around Manaus are
being destroyed with the expansion of its urban
limits, as well as for agriculture and cattle-
ranching, and the pied tamarin, although not
hunted, is undoubtedly declining rapidly in
numbers. Ayres et al. (1980, 1982), Egler (1983)
and Coimbra-Filho (1987) have also reviewed its
distribution and conservation status.

Silvia Egler is continuing her studies on the pied
tamarin for a doctoral thesis, also from the State
University of Campinas, under the supervision of
Marc G.M.van Roosmalen (Department of Botany,
INPA). In this study she is examining the
ecological segregation of the midas tamarin,
Saguinus midas midas and S.b.bicolor, through
vegetation analyses and a detailed delimitation of
the geographic distribution of the two species in
the vicinity of Manaus. Her findings have already
indicated that the range of S.b.bicolor is even
smaller than indicated by previous studies (Ayres
et al., 1980, 1982), with the Rio Cuieras being the
western limit and Km 30 of the BR-174 highway
one of the northern limits. The research is being
financed by the National Institute for Amazon
Research (INPA), the Brazilian Science Council

LINCOLN PARK ZOO SCOTT NEOTROPIC
FUND

The Lincoln Park Zoo Scott Neotropic Fund is
sponsored by the Lincoln Park Zoological Society
and the Chicago Park District. It provides support
for conservation projects throughout Latin
America, although preference is given to new
projects with 1) links to either the Lincoln Park
Zoo animal collection or members of the zoo staff,
2) direct participation by graduate and/or
undergraduate students, and 3) support designated
for students and/or field assistants from Latin
America. Projects should generate information
that contributes to the conservation of Latin
American Wildlife. Awards are seldom greater
than US$7,500, and most are of the order of
$5,000-$7,000. The fund does not generally
support salaries and the purchase of permanent
equipment. For further information about the fund,
as well as the zoo's animal collection, write to

INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM
FOR FISH AND WILDLIFE MANAGERS

An International Exchange Program for Fish and
Wildlife Managers was established in 1990 at the
Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and Wildlife
Research Unit for the purposes of providing fish
and wildlife professionals and educators from Latin
America with practical management-oriented
training. Participants are given opportunities to
develop new knowledge and technical skills by
working in the field, laboratory, and academic
setting with biologists and managers. In addition,


the Exchange Program is intended to increase
awareness of shared fish and wildlife concerns in
the western hemisphere among students, staff and
cooperators affiliated with the Unit. The program
includes only established professionals, and is
funded by the Office of International Affairs,
U.S.Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Unit.

The cooperators for the 1992 program were as
follows: United States U.S.Fish and Wildlife
Service (Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and
Wildlife Research Unit, Office of International
Affairs, Northeast Regional Office), University of
Massachusetts, Massachusetts Division of Fisheries
and Wildlife, and the Hitchcock Center for the
Environment, Inc.; Latin America Universidad
Nacional de Costa Rica (Programa Regional de
Vida Silvestre para Mesoamerica y el Caribe),
Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais
(Departamento de Zoologia), Brazil, and the
Universidad Nacional Experimental de los Llanos
Occidentales (Secretirio Ejecutivo de Postgrado),
Venezuela. The three Latin American wildlife
biologists who participated in the 1992 program
were: Magaly M.Ojeda C., a wildlife ecologist
working with PROFAUNA, an agency of the
Environmental and Natural Resources Ministry of
Venezuela (MARNR), President of the Venezuelan
Association for the Study of Mammals, and
currently developing a new graduate program in
Aquatic and Wildlife Management and
Conservation at the Universidad Simon Bolivar;
Claudia M.R.Costa, who is working at the
Conservation Data Center of the Fundacqo
Biodiversitas, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, specifically
on the development of computerized mapping
programs (Geographic Information Systems GIS)
for setting priorities for land use and conservation;
and Eduardo Carrillo J., an Associate Professor in
the Regional Wildlife Management Program for
Central America and the Caribbean, Universidad
Nacional, Heredia, Costa Rica.

Two new cooperators joined the Program in 1993:
Enrique H.Bucher, Centro de Zoologia Aplicada,
Cassilla do Correo 122, 5000 Cordoba, Argentina;
and Magaly M.Ojeda C., Aquatic and Wildlife
Management and Conservation, Universidad
Simon Bolivar, Caracas, Venezuela. Both
cooperators are establishing master's programs in
wildlife management. The exchanges for 1993
will take place in the early Autumn, with the
selection date being August 1.
