CONSERVATION AND POPULATION
STATUS OF THE BROWN HOWLING
MONKEY (ALOUATTA FUSCA CLAMITANS)
Due to widespread habitat destruction, the original
distribution of the brown howling monkey, Alouatta
fitsca, has been dramatically reduced (Mittenneier,
1986; Mittermeier and Cheney 1987). Its present
distribution is limited to small populations scattered
throughout its original range, surviving mainly in
small nature reserves in south-east Brazil and the
Misiones province in Argentina. Little is known about
the size and conservation status of the renmant
populations, and the records of their occurrence are
imprecise (Mendes, 1989). This report is an update of
the occurrence and status of the brown howling
monkey in Argentina.
Originally, Alouatta fusca ranged throughout the
Atlantic and Paranaense forests of Brazil from the
States of Bahia and Espirito Santo in the north to Rio
Grande do Sul and the Argentine Province of
Misiones in the south (Cordeiro da Silva, 1981;
Kinzey, 1982). Two subspecies of brown howlers are
commonly recognized: A. f fiscal, from the northern
part of the species range, is on the verge of extinction
(Mittermeier, 1986) and the 1994 IUCN Red List of
Threatened Animals gave the status of this taxon as
endangered (Groombridge, 1993). The southern
subspecies, A. f clamitans, is considered vulnerable by
IUCN due to extreme fragmentation and the evident
decline of populations in many parts of its range.
The first record of the brown howler in Argentina was
by Crespo (1954), who reported an individual
captured in an Araucaria (Araucaria angustijblia)
forest (Fig. 1). In 1974, the same author reported
another three individuals which had died in the 1965-
66 regional yellow fever epidemic (Crespo, 1974).
Recently, Massoia et al. (1992) reported two further
individuals captured in Misiones in 1976 and 1978
respectively. In January 1991, we recorded the
vocalizations of brown howlers (at least two groups
were howling simultaneously) at Cmrce Caballero
Provincial Park, a 435 ha reserve of unspoiled
Araucaria subtropical forest. hi November 1993, at the
same site, we encountered a group of brown howlers
composed of one adult male, one subadult male, three
adult females and one dependent offspring. According
to local people, several other groups were living in the
proximity of the Cruce Caballero Provincial Park at
this time, in areas of high human pressure. Cmnce
Caballero Provincial Park is currently the only
location in Argentina with a confirmed population of
brown howling monkeys.

Although the knowledge on the status of the brown
howler in Argentina is an ongoing challenge, there
are some important points to take into account to
understand the conservation problems of this species
in this part of its range.
Unsuited protected areas and habitat fragmentation.
There are no records of brown howlers- in the most
important reserves in the region: the Iguazu National
Park, the Uruguai Provincial Park, and the Yaboti
Reserve (Fig.1). Afusca has apparently some kind of
association with Araucaria forest in Argentina, and
there is a serious lack of protection for this type of
forest in Misiones. The Cruce Caballero Provincial
Park and the San Antonio Strict Natural Reserve are
the only reserves protecting tiny fractions of Araucaria
forest, and both are suffering the deleterious effects of
fragmentation and small size (see for example, Sould,
Cover photograph by Clara B. Jones: Aggressive interaction between male (left) and female (right) Alouatta palliata (see page 4).

Neotropical Primates 2(4), December 1994
Land use and development. Outside the protected
areas the native forest is in an advanced state of
degradation and fragmentation due to increasing
human pressure. Big timber companies are
transforming huge portions of native forest into Pinus,
Araucaria and Eucalyptus monospecific plantations.
Those lands not converted into plantations are being
highly impacted by squatters (poor families from
Brazil and Argentina) seeking land for subsistence
fanning. The high degree of poverty, the problem of
land tenure and the misuse of natural resources near
Cnmcc Caballero are important problems to resolve in
order to ensure the conservation of the forest
Rarity of the species and susceptibility to diseases.
Both species of howling monkeys living in Misiones,
the brown howler (A:fiusca) and the black howler (A.
caraya) have extremely low population densities as
noted by the extreme difficulty in encountering them
(Crespo 1982). In April 1994, a field trip to Cnmce
Caballero Provincial Park was made in which over 70
km were walked searching for brown howlers without
success. We estimate that no more than three groups
live within the Park boundaries. This low population
density may best be attributed to the devastating
effects of the 1965-66 yellow fever epidemic which
decimated populations of both species in Misiones
province and areas nearby in Brazil and Paraguay
(Bejarano, 1974; Crespo, 1974, 1982). Yellow fever
has been known to have harmful effects on other
howling monkey populations (Collias and Southwick,
1952; Tinnm, 1994; K.Stoner, pers. conun.). The
surrounding areas of the Cnrce Caballero Provincial
Park also have a high incidence of Derinatobia sp. in
domestic animals and humans (pers. obs.). At high
levels this parasite has been known to increase
howling monkey mortality rates (Milton, 1982; Arditi
and Placci 1990; Brown and Zunino, 1994). The
increased incidence of epidemics due to habitat
fragmentation and the ever growing human presence
around Cruce Caballero Provincial Park may have a
disastrous impact on the surviving population of
brown howling monkeys. There is growing
understanding that nongenetic factors, and
particularly catastrophic events, may be more likely to
limit the viability of populations than genetic factors
(Lande, 1988 in Young, 1994).
Competition with the black howler. The sympathy of
the black and brown howlers in Argentina is still open
to controversy. While some authors have reported
sympatry (Cordeiro da Silva, 1981; Crespo, 1982;
Crockett and Eisenberg, 1987; Redford and Eisenberg,
1992), the scarce information available gives the
impression of an area of intermingled populations of
Alouatta carava and brown howlers and the
replacement of one species by the other. Whichever is
the case, the coexistence of black howling monkeys in
the same area is an important point to take into
account. The black howler lives in very fragmented
and disturbed forests and has a large capacity to
disperse and colonize patches and remnants of forest
in the Bolivian-Chaco region. Higher densities of
black howlers are maintained on the Paran, river
islands with a secondary growth vegetation and a
lower concentration of secondary compounds (Rumiz,
1990). On the other hand, the brown howler seems to
prefer moister forest than A. caraya and is found in
Brazilian Atlantic forest, the southern Araucaria forest
of Brazil and Misiones, Argentina (Redford and
Eisenberg 1992), all of which were continuous in the
past. The recovery of A. fusca populations could be
prevented because of the extreme fragmentation of the
Paranaense forest and its transfonnation into
secondary patches. However, A. caraya populations
may be relatively unaffected by these changes and
consequently replace brown howlers in this part of
Any conservation project must have as its first
objective the study and protection of the environment,
considering the conservation of forests and monkeys
as a whole. The development of an action plan with
the aim of improving the conservation of Argentine
forests requires not only interdisciplinarity but also a
compromise between conservation and development,
to include the rural people that live and use these areas
(Brown, 1990). Conservation and development
programs for alternative and sustainable agricultural
and forestry practices are highly desirable in the
region. It is necessary to consider people's needs and
social promotion by including local people in the
discussion and execution of conservation programs.
To preserve the Paranense forest of Misiones it will be
cnrcial to develop an integrated plan to manage the
reserved areas of the northern part of the province and
the Iguaqfl National Park in Brazil. It is important to
promote the formation of state and private reserves
(including Araucaria forests) that constitute a-
continuous corridor connecting the former area to the
Yaboti Reserve and the Turbo National Park in Brazil.
It will also be important to increase the area of the
Cruce Caballero Provincial Park while it is still
possible, and link it to other protected areas (Rode and
Di Bitetti, 1994).
The development of a plan for the conservation of the
brown howling monkey and its environment in
Argentina will require considerable research and
investigation. Misiones still has some 1,200,000 ha of
natural forest, approximately 400,000 ha of which are
Page 3 Neotropical Primates 2(4), December 1994
under protected status. This area, together with the
Brazilian part of Igua9i and the Turbo National Park,
is the largest area of continuous subtropical
Paranaense forest remaining (Laclau, 1994). This
provides an outstanding opportunity to develop
conservation programs in this important natural area
in the neotropics. Not only the brown howling monkey
but also other endangered species, such as the harpy
eagle, the giant river otter and the jaguar, probably
have their last opportunity to continue inhabiting the
Paranense forest only if efforts are concentrated in
developing a coherent conservation plan for this

INJURY AND DISEASE OF THE MANTLED
HOWLER MONKEY IN FRAGMENTED
Vulnerability to extinction of a population may be a
consequence of insults visiting the bodies of
individuals, thereby depressing competitive abilities,
reproduction, or predator defense (see Scott, 1988).
This note presents data on injury and disease in the
mantled howler monkey (Aloualta palliata Gray) in
three fragmented habitats at Hacienda La Pacifica,
Cailas, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. The history of the
ranch, its habitats, and a detailed map may be found
in Clarke and Zucker (1994), and methods of capture
and release are outlined in Scott et al. (1976). The
study's main purpose was an exhaustive census and

ectoparasites (for example, botfly larvae), fungi, and
herpes-like lesions. Table 1 gives these results.
Within habitats, events occur equally between the
sexes, similar to the findings of Stuart et al. (1990).
Between habitats (Total columns), injury occurs
equally in RIP, DEC, and IRR (y2= 2.69, n.s.) while
disease occurs much more frequently in the RIP
habitat (p<.02, z2 = 8.9, df = 2). These results cannot
be explained by differences in the representation
across habitats of males and females in Scott's census
(Table 1, parentheses). Thus, disease appears to be
more frequent in RIP habitat as Stuart et al., (1990)
found for one specific pathogen of the La Pacifica
howlers. These authors identified no ectoparasites (for
example, botfly larvae) in their sample. This suggests
possible seasonal differences, since the present study
was conducted mainly during the dry season months,
while that of Stuart el al. was carried out primarily
during wet season months.
Frankie el al. (1974) showed that RIP sites of tropical
dry forest environment in Costa Rica are more similar

forests. The higher rate of infection in RIP habitat may
be explained by a higher rate of disease in a forest
more favorable to its spread, possibly related to higher
humidity (Stuart et al., 1990). Further, the RIP habitat
is, in essence, a corridor of forest extending about 30
m in width along riverbanks, as mandated by law
(W.Hagnauer, pers.comm.). Recent wildlife corridor
theory predicts a higher incidence of disease in
corridors, bringing into question their utility in the
design of areas to preserve biodiversity and in the
management of the effects of habitat fragmentation
(McEuen, 1993; Simberloff and Cox, 1987).
Attributing higher incidence of disease in RIP habitat
to higher population density (Stuart et al., 1990;
Gilbert, 1994) is problematic since in the present study
population density was highest in the most fragmented
habitat: IRR with 130 individuals/km2, compared to
70 individuals/kin2 for RIP, and 25 individuals/km2
for DEC (estimated from a map of La Pacifica
provided by W.Hagnauer). Finally, if the RIP forest is
a "better" habitat than DEC or IRR, then coefficients
of competition may be higher there, leading to higher
interaction rates and greater opportunities for the
spread of disease.
Milton (1982) suggested that botfly infestations in
howlers may contribute to howler mortality on Barro
Colorado Island, Panama. The present results and the
report by Stuart et al. (1990) do not support such a
conclusion. No differences were detected between
mean body weights for males and females by habitat
for disease (including botflies) or injuries compared
with body weights by habitat and sex in Scott's
complete census. It is not possible, however, to rule
out costs to survivorship and fecundity not affecting
Injuries are expected to show no habitat differences if
they occur primarily as a result of non-interactive or
random causes (for example, falls from trees). On the
other hand, injuries may arise from competitive
interactions common to all habitats, possibly because
of the species-typical dominance hierarchy in which
younger adults fight their way to high rank and do not
secure group membership unless they obtain an age-
related position in the hierarchy (see Milton, 1982).
Social structure, then, may correlate with likelihood
of injury as well as disease. Higher occurrences of
injury might also be expected to occur with higher
population densities, but there was no evidence for this
in this study.
In conclusion, adults in RIP habitat appear to be
significantly more susceptible to disease than adults in
other habitats. Several explanations are considered.
The drier and more heterogeneous habitats, DEC and
IRR, appear to provide some protection 'from
pathogens (see Stuart et al. 1990). Indeed IRR habitat
may "behave" more like DEC than RIP habitat. If this
is so, then microclimate (for example, temperature
and humidity) and microhabitat factors (for example,
tree architecture, floristic composition, and tree
density and dispersion) rather than population density
per se may account for most of the variance in
susceptibility to disease in addition to individual
effects such as dominance rank and age. Injuries occur
equally in all habitats, possibly due to accidents and
social organization. Further quantitative studies are
required to determine the role of injury and disease in
howler monkeys and other primate populations.

INFANTICIDE IN THE BROWN HOWLER
MONKEY, ALOUATTA FUSCA
Fatal aggression by adult males toward infants
(infanticide) has been reported in several of the
Neotropical howler monkey species, including
Alouatta seniculus (see Crockett and Sekulic, 1984),
A.palliata (see Clarke, 1983), and A.caraya (see
Zunino et al., 1985). We observed infanticide for the
first time in the brown howler, Alouatta fisca, during
a long-term study of the species at the Santa Genebra
Reserve, Campinas, state of Sao Paulo. The Reserve is
a 250 ha fragment of Atlantic coastal forest, known
for its high density of howlers, the highest yet
recorded throughout its distribution (Chiarello and
Galetti, 1994). For information on the Reserve and the
research there see Chiarello (1993a, 1993b, 1994) and
Galetti et al. (1994).
The study group was composed of one adult male, one
female + infant, and one young juvenile male. On 23
November 1989, we observed the group's adult male
fighting and chasing a solitary male we had seen
occasionally near to the group. The fighting was
preceded by howling sessions by both males. One
week later, we found a dead infant in the area, which
had bites on the head and shoulder, and was missing a
leg (Fig. 1). The infant, weighing 170 g, was
deposited in the Natural History Museum at the State
University of Campinas (UNICAMP, ZUEC 1315).
We discarded the possibility of predation because
Santa Genebra is too small to support large predators
such as eagles or wild cats, and the pattern of injuries
was similar to that reported for A.seniculus in'
Venezuela by Crockett and Pope (1988). The
possibility of infanticide was strengthened when we
found the group to have a new male, and lacking the
infant. The young juvenile remained in the group for
another two weeks, but subsequently disappeared. We
had no evidence that the new male had expelled
him. Although infanticide was reported only
once for our study site, we expect that the
increase in the already large population there
might result in more cases being observed in the

CAPTURE AND RADIO-TELEMETRY OF
MASKED TITI MONKEYS, CALLICEBUS
PERSONA TUS MELANOCHIR
Introduction: Masked titi monkeys, Callicebius
personaltus. are extremely shy, quick, and quiet,
making behavioral-ecological studies in the wild a
difficult task. Their reaction to observers is to flee into
the canopy, which in the tall rain forests where they
occur can be between 20 and 25 m high. In addition,
they are quite small (between 1.5 and 2 kg) and highly
cryptic. During a one-year pilot study of the masked
titi, C.p.melanochhr, in southern Bahia. we found that
habituation just by following the animals was
unsuccessful. Using "play back" of recordings of their
calls was helpful only in locating the monkeys, but
was equally inefficient for habituating them. The
problem was solved only through capturing them and
fitting them with radio transmitters.
SlSttuv Site: The study site was a forest fragment of
about 100 ha in the Lemos Maia Experimental
Station, of the Cocoa Research Center (CEPEC) of the
Conmissao Execuliva do Piano da Lavoura Cacaueira
(CEPLAC). the Regional Cocoa Growing Authority,
located in Una. southern Bahia. Brazil. A description
of the area was given by Rylands (1982).
Capture Techniques: The first
attempts to capture the titi
monkeys used five traps placed in
trees frequented by them at a
height of about 15 m. The traps
were baited with a variety of fruits
and observed daily over three
months. This method was
unsuccessful. We then resorted to
chemical immobilization using a
carbon dioxide powered dart gun
(Telinject, R6merberg, Germany:
Type Vario IV.3 1 NP) and
reusable syringe darts with a 20
nun needle. The darts were loaded
with a mixture of 0.6-0.9 ml (30-
45 mg) Ketavct (Ketamine
hydrochloride50 mg/ml) and 0.3-
0.45 ml (6-9 mg) Romipun
(Xylacine, 20 mg/ml). If it was
Neotropical Primates 2(4), December 1994
necessary to prolong anaesthesia, 0.3 ml (15 ing) of
Ketavet was injected subsequently. For revival, we
injected a mixture of 0.3 ml Yohimbin (5% solution)
and 0.3 ml Effortil (Boehringer, Germany). To
prevent bacterial infection, we gave 0.4 ml
Tardomyocel (Bayer, Germany). All injections were
given intramuscularly into the hind leg. Darting
attempts were limited to individuals within 8 in and
with the thigh or rump prominent in order to prevent
injury. Because of the extended period of recovery and
because the group requires several hours to find a
sleeping tree, no monkey was darted after 12 a.m.
Results: Five successful darlings were carried out
between July 1992 and November 1993. See Table 1
for the details of each. The first animal (No.l). a
subadult male, was darted by fixing the gun in a
sleeping tree of the study group. Early in the morning
the dart gun was fired using a long distance switch.
The animal was easily caught as it fell. A radio
transmitter Type I (weight 42 g: K.Wagener, K61n,
Germany) (Fig. 1) was strapped to the monkey's neck.
The batteries have a lifetime of about nine months.
The titi monkeys were measured and marked and the
mixture of antibiotic and reviver were injected. They
were kept in a burlap bag in the shade until they
recovered. The animal's reintegration to the group and
its well-being were monitored using a radio-receiver
and H-antenna (K.Wagener). Normally the group
stayed nearby after one of its members were darted.
They emitted long distance calls and quieter "intra-
group" calls. After six weeks, the collared animal was
found to be in poor condition. There were skin
abrasions and infection of the mandible close to the

In the second darting (No.2), the group was easier to
follow, and a male was darted directly while feeding
in a fruit tree. The radio-transmitter Type I was fitted
to the hip. During the first two weeks it showed some
problems when jumping but was not injured. It was
recaptured (No.3) nine months later, and a smaller
transmitter (Type II, weight 22 g) was fitted to its
neck, which, however, failed after six weeks. It was
captured again (No.4), and we found minor
lacerations of the skin on both sides of the mandibular
region. As a result we refitted a transmitter (Type I) to
the hip again (No.4). Two biologists continued the
observations and the transmitter was replaced again
Conclusion: The attachment of a radio-collar to the
neck of a titi monkey is evidently dangerous. It
resulted in infections through wounds caused by the
tight radio-collar. The angular region of the titi's
mandible is very large. The caudoventral part of the
lower jaw is extended to provide for a resonance cavity
and the space required for the radio-collar on the neck
is insufficient. On the other hand, attaclunent of a
radio-collar to the hip of a female would be dangerous
in the case of pregnancy. The best solution is to use a
hip attaclunent only on males. For females, we will be
designing and testing a backpack-style harness (see,
for example, Savage et al., 1993).

THE NISIA FLORESTA
Introduction: The psychobiology group at the Federal
University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN), Natal,
Brazil, began using the conunon marmoset (Callithrix
jacchus), native to north-east Brazil, as a research
model in the early 1970's. The "N'icleo de
Primatologia" was established in 1985: a breeding
colony to support the increasing research demand. It
was not long, however, before the need was felt to
establish a field site to carry out studies on the ecology
and behaviour of wild groups in order to complement
or gain a better understanding of the behavioral and
physiological research being carried out on the captive
Our search for an adequate field site resulted in the
choice of the Experimental Forestry Station (EFLEX)
of the Brazilian Institute for the Enviromnent and
Renewable Natural Resources (Ibama), 2 lan from the
town of Nisia Floresta and 45 km from Natal.
Following due permission obtained from the Brazil
Neotropical Primlates 2(4), Decem~ber 1994
Page 9 Neotropical Primates 2(1,), Decemmiber 1994
Science Council (CNPq), the first study of the
marmoset population there began in January 1991.
Due to collaboration between Ibama and UFRN, the
research has prospered. Here we briefly describe the
site, the research underway and the site's potential for
The Study Site: The
EFLEX/Ibama study site
(605' S, 35012' W) is ,N-ta. L
located 2 km from Nisia
Floresta, and about 45 kma BRAZIL
from Natal, the capital of
the state ofRio Grande do .
Norte. The Research
Station has an area of 180
ha, including 80 ha of
secondary Atlantic coastal forest and 40 ha of
experimental plantations. The plantations are of pine,
eucalyptus, coconut, and various conunercial fruit and
timber species. Trees in the plantation reach up to 30
m in height, and the understorey is kept clear. The
secondary forest can reach 20 m in height, with some
trees having trunks as large as 50 cm in diameter at
breast height. Vines, bromeliads, orchids and grasses
are abundant. The soils are sandy, and the humus
layer is generally about 20 cm in depth. All the areas
occupied by marmoset study groups, both in and away
from the forest, are divided into 50 x 50 m quadrants
and the intersections are marked with flagging tape.
The quadrant trail system currently covers 28 ha of
forest and 15 ha of the plantation area. Although the
north-east of Brazil is mostly dry, the coastal regions
have distinct seasonality in rainfall. The dry season
peaks in December, and the rainy season in May.
However, rain rarely interferes seriously with
observation schedules. Temperatures are highest
during the dry season, reaching 330C, and lowest
during the rainy season, dropping to as low as 200C.
Ibama has allocated a small two-bedroom house to the
research group, providing accommodation and
The Marmoset Groups: Three groups have been
observed continuously since 1991: Bel6m (Group B),
Chui (Group C), and Plantagio (Group P). Groups B
and C live in the forest area, while Group P inhabits
the plantations. Six more groups were included in
January 1993: Argentinos (Group A), Atlintico
(Group A, which recently split up), Meio (Group M,
new arrivals), Nisia (Group N, which split from
Group A), and Oeste (Group O), all in the forested
area, and lastly Quatro (Group Q, neighbors to Group
P) in the plantation area. Figure 1 indicates the
location of the groups in the study area. All
individuals in the groups which are followed have
been captured, measured, tattooed and fitted with
colored beads on metal chains. The beads, in
combinations of two or three, identify the group and
the individual. A permanent file is kept recording
information on each of the marked individuals.
Routine Activities Captures: The study groups or
individuals are routinely captured for collar fitting or
replacement, dye marking and biometry.
Compartmented traps are baited for several
consecutive days and manually operated for the
selective capture of individuals. Before new groups are
captured they are followed for several days for the
identification of areas of exclusive use. Automatic
traps are used on occasion. The traps are made of
small gauge wire mesh over a wooden frame, with
either five or seven compartments, each measuring

roughly 50 x 10 x 20 cm. They are placed on a I m
high platform at the base of heavily used gum trees.
The marmosets are trapped by manual closure of a
hinged, vertically-closing door, using nylon fishing
line. The operator, a few meters away from the trap, is
usually hidden in a blind of coconut palm leaves.
Initial trapping and handling does cause some stress to
the animals, but groups re-habituate quickly to being
followed and the procedure appears to do no damage
to observations in the long run.
Routine Activities Monitoring: In addition to the
collection of data for specific research projects, each
researcher is assigned a group for long-term
monitoring. This involves weekly checking of the
composition and apparent health and reproductive
condition of the individuals, along with records of the
use of space and any observable changes in the
habitat. This gives us a picture of the long-term
history of the groups, and has been routine since the
beginning of the study.
Routine Activities Meetings: Administrative and
scientific meetings are held regularly by the Nisia
Research Group. Aspects of the administration of the
research and the study site, the results of the routine
monitoring and research projects are discussed at
these meetings. Attendance is obligatory for all the
participants in the program.
Research Projects Dissertations: The three groups
B, C, and P were studied by Leslie J.Digby (University
of California, Davis) from January 1991 to June 1992,
as part of her doctoral research which examined
particularly reproductive strategies and social
organization. Dr Steven Ferrari (Federal University of
Para, Bel6m) also participated in this study. Fabiola
Albuquerque, a Master's student in the Psychobiology
Course at UFRN, studied the distribution of parental
care in Groups B and P from August 1992 to
December 1993. Carla Soraia de Castro, also a
Master's student in the Psychobiology Course at
UFRN, studied rhytlmlicity in grooming and
locomotion during the same period (Groups C and P).
From January 1993 to January 1994, ClAudio Barreto
(UFRN), who acted as field assistant to Leslie Digby,
studied differences in scent-marking behavior between
two reproductive females of Groups C and P. The
data are currently being analyzed. Arrilton Araijo, a
doctoral student from the Universitd de Paris Nord,
has been observing the Nisia marmosets since March
1993, studying behavioral, kinship and ecological
influences on individual migration (Groups B and P),
and Catherine Chojnacki, also a doctoral student from
the same university, has begun observation on scent-
marking and olfactory recognition. Maria Carla
Nascimento and Beatriz Stunpf have begun studies
on the vocal repertoire and the contextual use of
vocalizations, both for UFRN Master's degrees.
Research Projects Long-Term Project: An integrated
project "Ecology, Communication, and Social
Development in Wild Groups of Callithrixjacchus" is
currently being developed by Dr Maria de Fatima
Arruda (social development and parental care), Dr
Dwain Santee communicationo, vocal signatures), and
Maria Socorro Borges Freire (ecology, botany), with
partial support from the Brazil Science Council
(CNPq). This project is assisted by the graduate
students listed above, visiting students from the
University of Slo Paulo (Rogdrio Zanaga de Camargo
Neves Jr., Marcos Roberto Pinheiro, and Ruth
Teixeira Nunes), and an undergraduate student
Rozinelly Queiroz de Miranda.
Funding: Activities at the field station are maintained
by small grants from ANAP (Associagio Norte-
Riograndense de Amparo a Pesquisa) for the purchase
of utilities and equipment. Some equipment has also
been purchased with a grant from FINEP
(Financiadora de Estudos e Pesquisas, Rio de
Janeiro). The Department of Physiology at UFRN
provides daily stipends for their staff and also
contributes to the daily running of tie house. The
integrated project mentioned above also counts on a
grant from the Brazil Science Council (CNPq) for
contracting unskilled labor and the purchase of field
materials. The funds available are evidently
insufficient, however, for the development of the site
and the equipping of the laboratory. The maintenance
of the field site is guaranteed in large part by the
researchers themselves. Visiting researchers support
their own projects and contribute a small daily fee.
Potential: There are a number of advantages offered
by this field station. In terms of the logistics,
geography and climate: the terrain is flat and
relatively sparse understoreys mean that it is easy to
walk through the forest, rainfall is minimal (only a
few weeks of the year) as are temperature variations,
the area is protected by Ibama, is only 2 km from the
town of Nisia Floresta and 45 kmn from Natal, can be
reached by bus, and being near the Equator has a
photoperiod of 12L:12D15 miin. The numerous
groups allow for diverse types of socio-ecological
studies: new group formation, migrations, and group
splitting are not uncommon; groups can be found
living in contrasting habitats, from secondary forest to
bushes and pine/eucalyptus plantations; and the high
density means that intergroup encounters are frequent
(sometimes seen several times a day, and involving
more than two groups).

A BLACK HOWLING MONKEY STUDY IN
January 1993 marked the onset of a year-long study of
the black howling monkey (Alouatta pigra) in
northern Belize. Observations were made on three
troops of marked monkeys (colored ankle tags), living
in a semi-deciduous riverine habitat at the Bermudian
Landing Sanctuary, in the Community Baboon
Sanctuary, Belize. These troops of marked monkeys
were selected for study based on their accessibility,
size, and cohesiveness. The majority of troops
consisted of one adult male, several adult females, and
juvenile offspring: 5-6 individuals in total. An average
troop range size was 3 ha, and in two of the observed
troops ranges were overlapping.
Each troop was observed from sunrise to sunset for
several consecutive days each month (four days for
two troops and two days for the third). Data were
collected using scan sampling, recording the activity
of each troop member in sight. Six main categories
were recorded: feeding, resting, moving, travelling,
howling, and playing. When feeding, the plant part
and name were noted, and a sample of the food item
Neolropical Primatles 2(4f), Decemrber- 1994
Neotropical Primates 2(4), December 1994
was collected when possible. Howling by troops other
than the study troop was also noted during each five
The study was completed on 2 December 1993. Over
1,500 hours were spent in the field in direct
observation, data collection, and the mapping and
censusing of other marked troops. The data will yield
a series of diurnal behavioral profiles, as well as
monthly and seasonal patterns. Preliminary analysis
suggests there are some behavioral differences
between A.pigra and its neighbor, the mantled
howling monkey (Aloiatta palliata). For example,
mantled howler alpha males
conunonly initiate travel
(Milton, 1980), whereas in this
study this role belonged to the
adult females predominant in
instigating troop travel to
feeding sites. Likewise, it was
not unusual to observe one of
the study troops travelling 2-10
m along the ground to reach
feeding trees in a field.

husband, Franklin Pav6n, and
with supervision from Dr

Sanctuary has maintained a captive breeding program
in Hawaii for several species of New World monkeys,
including Callithrix jacchus, Ca/lithrix melannra,
Cebuella pygmaea, Saguinus geoffioyi, and Cebus
capucinus (Fig. ). The work at the Sanctuary includes
rehabilitation: providing the necessary nutritional,
psychological, and emotional support to facilitate the
recovery of the primates who have been victims of
trauma and abuse, and restoring them to health. The
Sanctuary is creating habitats for primate family
groups to live in safety and in relatively natural
surroundings, with an abundant variety of organically
grown food, and dedicated care. The tropical climate
allows the primates to be in outdoor enclosures year

years. The Zoological Horticulture project began over
four years ago in order to provide more "natural" food
and forage. Over 100 trees have been planted from
seed for later introduction into the "jungle
environments" for each colony of marmosets and
tamarins. Special emphasis is placed on growing plant
species related to South American sources of gums
(for example, Acacia farnesiana and Samanea sanan,
"monkey pod"), to accommodate the specific dietary
specialization of gumivores. Primate nutritionists are
interested in analyzing gum samples with the aim of
producing gum supplements which may improve the
nutrition and health of captive callitrichid colonies
The Pacific Primate Sanctuary offers innovative
environmental education to volunteers, students,
educators, members of other conservation
organizations, and local communities. They are given
the opportunity to consider the pressing need and their
role in protecting threatened animals on a local,
national, and global level. Representatives from the
facility have appeared as guest lecturers on the
subjects of rain forest preservation and the changing
global environment. Schools have "adopted" the
Sanctuary as their yearly Community Service Project.
The Pacific Primate Sanctuary has recently initiated a
program to facilitate these vital environmental
partnerships between nonprofit organizations and
Maui's school system. The objective is to assist the
children in becoming environmental stewards,
problem solvers, educators, and powerful forces for
change through direct experience with their
environment and the groups working to preserve it.
The inumediate goal of the organization is to expand
the space available for more species of callitrichids
through the creation of a large rain forest preserve on
Maui with naturalistic habitats. The Sanctuary has
recently obtained enough property in Haiku to ensure
safe boundaries, with sufficient acreage to grow more
organic produce and plants. Volunteers, research
assistants, and funds are needed to construct habitats,
assist with zoological horticulture, and care for the
growing mnuber of threatened and endangered
primates in need of protection. Plans are also
underway to set up a reintroduction program for the
Cebus capucinus maintained at the Sanctuary. They
will be reintroduced in Costa Rica. Any assistance in
facilitating the success of this effort and the captive
breeding project for marmosets and tamarins would be
greatly appreciated. Please contact Lucy L.Wormser at

FEEDING ECOLOGY OF GOLDEN-FACED
Eleonore Setz, Assistant Professor at the Zoology
Department, State University of Campinas
(UNICAMP), Sao Paulo, completed her doctoral
thesis for the Ecology Course at UNICAMP, on the
feeding ecology of golden-faced saki monkeys,
Pithecia pithecia chrysocephala, in a forest fragment
in the Central Amazon, in December 1993. It was
financed by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF-US), the
Smithsonian Institution, and the Brazilian Science
Council (CNPq) and Higher Education Authority
(CAPES). The research was associated with the
Biological Dynamics of Forests Fragments Project of
the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., and
the National Institute for Amazon Research (INPA),
Manaus. The following summarizes the thesis.
The feeding ecology of a group of golden faced sakis
(P.p.chrysocephala) in a 10 ha fragment of terra fine
forest, 80 km north of Manaus, was studied with the
aim of determining the influence of seasonal variation
in food abundance on diet and other behaviors. After
the group was habituated, the first detailed
observations were made in July 1986 (133 observation
hours; dry season, fruit scarcity) and in March 1987
(135 observation hours; rainy season; fruiting peak).
Approximately 1000 hours of observation provided
additional data between February 1985 and January
1991. During this time, the single polygynic family
group occupying the 10 ha fragment reproduced
regularly and showed a low mortality. Time budgets
for all group individuals were quantified through scan
sampling. The floristic composition and structure of
the forest fragment was compared to continuous forest
where sakis were also seen, using the point-centered
quarter method to sample plants in three size classes,
at 45 points in each area. The phenology of 1080
plants was followed from June 1989 to May 1991,
evaluating new leaves, flower buds, flowers, innuature
and mature fruits. The number of plant species,
floristic diversity, plant density and the number of
species for 50% IVI did not differ between the forest
fragment and the continuous forest, although larger
trees were significantly less tall and tree mortality was
significantly higher in tde fonner. The Morisita
Similarity Index revealed significant differences
between the fragment and continuous forest only for
the species composition of meditun-sized plants, and
the difference was not great. New leaf production was
higher in the fragment. The fruiting peak for
Neotropical Primateas 2(4), Decem~ber 1994(
Neotropical Primates 2(4,), Deceuuber 1994 Page 14
individuals and species was from November
through March. Fruiting intensity was correlated
with monthly rainfall. The activity period of the
sakis did not differ between seasons (7 h 52 min. in
the dry season v. 8 h 3 min in the wet season) and
is very short when compared to other monkeys.
Saki time budgets did not differ between dry and
wet seasons (e.g., feeding 30% in the dry season v.
28% in the wet season; moving 52% in the dry
season v. 49% in the wet season). They did,
however, cover longer distances in the rainy season
(1115 m per day v. 720 m per day in the dry
season). Fruits comprised 91% and leaves 4% of
the wet season diet (based on time spent feeding).
In the dry season fruits comprised 61.5%, leaves
18% and flowers 16% of the diet. Immature fruits
and seeds contributed between 26% and 31% of
their diet. Diet diversity was significantly higher in
the rainy season (H'1ol,41 v. 1.21) when fruit was
more abundant and varied. Sakis like other
frugivores change from a strategy of low cost
(moving less), low return (more leaves, less
nutritious items, expanding their diet) in the dry
season when high quality food (fruit) is scarce, to a
strategy of high cost (moving more and faster),
high return (eating abundant fruits) in the rainy
season. The high number of plant species eaten
(190) is comparable to that reported for other sakis.

A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF PARENTAL
CARE AND INFANT DEVELOPMENT IN
Cristina Valeria Santos completed her Master's
thesis in Experimental Psychology at the
University of Sao Paulo in early 1994 entitled "A
Comparative Study of Parental Care and Infant
Development in Callitrichids (Callithrix and
Leontopithecus) According to Group Size". The
study was supervised by Dr Emma Otta of the
Institute of Psychology, and financed by the
University of Sao Paulo, the Brazil Science Council
(CNPq), and the Fundagio de Amparo a Pesquisa
do Estado de Sao Paulo (FAPESP). The following
is the abstract of the thesis.
"Cooperative breeding is a feature of the social
behavior among species of tamarins and
marmosets. As most births result in twins, the
contribution of the father and older siblings
(alloparents) is essential for decreasing the
mother's effort to rear the infants and guarantee
offspring survival. Cooperative breeding is
characterized mainly by carrying and food sharing.
In order to verify differences between group/infant
relations, observations were made on 21 infants of
Callithrix (C.kuhli and Cgeoffroyi) and 29 of
Leontopithecus (L.rosalia, L.chrysomelas, and
L.chrysopygus) at the Rio de Janeiro Primate
Center. They were born into two types of groups:
small (with 0-2 alloparents) or large (with 3-6
alloparents). The results showed that on the whole
the effort related to caring was bigger in
Leontopithecus than in Callithrix. Leontopithecus
infants were rejected less by the father, spent
smaller amounts of time independent on the
branch, and displayed more frequent suckling
bouts than Callithrix infants. The results were
interpreted based on concepts such as reproductive
costs, maturation patterns, and ecological
differences between the two genera".
Cristina Santos is currently carrying out Doctoral
research on parental care and reproductive
behavior of captive groups of Callithrix kuhli. The
hormonal bases underlying both behavioral
processes, such as changes in testosterone and
estrogen levels after birth and possible suppression
by the dominant female on the other females, will
be studied through urine sampling. The research
will be carried out at the Rio de Janeiro Primate
Center (CPRJ/FEEMA), and supervised by Dr
Emma Otta, University of Sao Paulo, and Dr
Jeffrey French, University of Nebraska at Omaha

EUROPEAN MARMOSET RESEARCH
GROUP (EMRG) 1ST GENERAL
Since its foundation in
the Spring of 1993 the
EMRG has been steadily F
gaining momentum in
terms of the number of its
registered participants and the number of countries
(even some non-European!) and scientific disciplines
which they represent. So it was that 60 people
involved directly with callitrichids and callitrichid
research met in Paris in November for a three-day
EMRG workshop entitled "Fundamental and Applied
Aspects of Marmoset Science". The philosophy of the
workshop (as is that of the EMRG itself) was to
stimulate coninunication about mannosets and
tamarins between individuals from various professions
and working across the very broadest spectrum of
disciplines and interests. This thinking was reflected
in the title of the workshop. The quality of the output
of biological research, biomedicine, and R & D, is
always going to depend directly on fundamental
scientific understanding; this is true for science based
on callitrichids just as much as it is for that based on
any other animal group. Ideally, we hoped to create an
informal workshop atmosphere in which people from
the following disciplines could openly discuss their
theoretical knowledge and practical experience with
marmosets and tamarins: animal welfare scientists,
ethologists, laboratory-animal tecluicians, pharmaco-
logists, physiologists, psychologists, toxicologists,
veterinary scientists, and wildlife and zoo biologists.
As idealistic as this concept might have seemed to us
prior to the workshop, and might seem to many people
who were not present and are reading this now, the
formula worked and it worked very well indeed.
Workshop discussion was based around the 22 invited
spoken presentations which were divided into four
theme sessions: housing and husbandry, nutrition and
health, physiology and behaviour, applications. The
scene was set by Anthony Rylands' (Federal University
of Minas Gerais, Brazil) special guest lecture entitled
"The Callitrichidae: a biological overview". Anthony
provided the non-fieldworkers among the audience -
that is to say the vast majority of us with an
extremely vivid and lively account of the ecological,
biological, and behavioral adaptations of the four
genera and some 25 species of callitrichid, followed by
an informed and heart-felt account of the conservation
status of this primate group in its natural habitats. The
relevance of the lecture and of Anthony's attendance at
the workshop were appreciated by all. Most of those
present were familiar with only a few of the species to
which Anthony referred: usually the common
marmoset and one or two others. Even more to the
point, for most, it is all too easy to slip into the frame
of mind that perceives callitrichids as "good laboratory
primates", and to stop thinking about the animals in
our research colonies in tenrs of the ecosystems of
which they are an integral part and in which they are
morphologically and behaviourally adapted to live.
Robert Hubrecht (Universities Federation for Animal
Welfare, UK) began the session on housing and
husbandry with a presentation of the results of a
United Kingdom survey of current laboratory practice
in breeding and experimental colonies of common
marmosets. The survey was based on the
questionnaire returns of 24 laboratories belonging to
government agencies, pharmaceutical companies,
animal suppliers, and university departments. This
survey analysis provided the first evidence of what
constitutes 'average marmoset husbandry' in the UK at
present. There had been an outstanding response to
the questionnaire. Christopher Pryce (Anthropology
Institute, Zirich) and Nicole Milkowski (SmithKline
Beecham Pharmaceuticals, UK) presented a joint
paper in which they described and compared current
practice in their own laboratories, and emphasized the
advantages of the integration of husbandry,
management, and research methods for successful
callitrichid research. The above two papers stimulated
some very constructive and frank discussion about
laboratory practice. Some of us were made aware of
certain short-comings of our own current practice
compared to other laboratories. It became clear that
simply because a husbandry, management or research
method works in a particular laboratory, this does not
mean that it is necessarily the optimal approach, and,
furthermore, that only through workshops such as this
will information exchange be achieved and the various
options addressed. Three talks that focused on
specific aspects of housing and husbandry completed
the session, all concerned with the conunon
marmoset. Andrea Dettling (Anthropology Institute,
Zirich) gave an account of a research project in which
she had investigated the effects of providing branches
at various orientations and of various diameters on
marmoset behaviour and activity budgets. Augusto
Vitale (Istituto Superiore di Saniti, Italy) described an
elegant experiment demonstrating that the familiarity
(and perhaps quality) of the home environment is vital
to the positive, stimulatory effects that novel
environmental features can exert on behaviour (for
example, play). Martin Heath (Glaxo Research and
Development Ltd., UK) gave a compelling sununary
of his efforts and successes as a chief technician in the
pharmaceutical industry, in simultaneously looking
after welfare and experimental requirements. His take-
home message was the intimate interdependence of
Neolr~opical Primatets 2(4)/, DeemberCI 1994/
A'eo tropical Primates 2(4), 1)ece,,iber 1994 Page 16
the quality of marnoset husbandry and of the
scientific data which marmosets yield.
While the session on housing and husbandry was very
Callithrix jacchus orientated, that on nutrition and
health had a definite comparative flavour. Bryan
Carroll (Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust, Jersey)
gave a detailed account of the attention paid to
callitrichid morphological, physiological, and
behavioral adaptations in the formulation of diets for
the some 12 callitrichid species which are maintained
and exhibited at the Trust. Nadia Robert (Zoological
Park, Bern, Switzerland) complemented this neatly in
her presentation of comparative pathological-clinical
work with the Trust's callitrichids. Although there was
only a small number of cases, she described the
relationship of pathological findings to clinical
symptoms and considered this in the light of
husbandry and nutrition practices. Under the
provocative title (suggested by us) of "Experimental
development of the complete marmoset diet", Allan
Thornhill (Special Diet Services Ltd., UK) described
the 25-year history of development of captive
marmoset diets. He provided examples of how specific
nutritional requirements of this specialized primate
group come to be recognised and incorporated in
commercial diets. The contribution that
supplementary foods can make to environmental
stimulation was also discussed.
The physiology and behaviour of callitrichids was the
opening theme of the workshop's second day. Hilary
Box (University of Reading, UK) discussed natural
patterns of social organisation and behaviour (for
example, group size, dispersal of individuals, and
gender differences) that are important to consider in
captive management. The importance of integrating
knowledge across various fields was emphasized,
including the observation that the validity, reliability,
standardisation and generalisation of research
protocols are dependent on the effects, to a large
extent unknown, of interaction between captive
management and biobehavioural propensities.
Christopher Pryce then talked about the importance of
evolutionary and comparative biology to
understanding the relationship between human
biology and that of other species and, therefore, to
assessing the absolute and relative worth of
biomedical models, namely callitrichids versus rodents
and Old World primates. He argued for the need to
apply these two biological disciplines in biomedicine
much more widely than is the present case, and took
examples from reproduction and the central nervous
system to support his argument. Hans Erkert
(Universitait Tiibingen, Genrany) gave a fascinating
and thorough account of the significance of biological
rhythmicity for fundamental and applied research, and
presented various physiological and behavioral
examples of diurnal and circadian rhythms from his
own work with common marmosets. The need for
circadian standardisation of captive conditions as well
as phase-constant timing of experimental procedures
was emphasised. Bidda Jones (Royal Society for
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, UK) then alerted
our attention to the importance of marmoset vocal
communication, a long neglected subject in captive
research and management. She described the acoustic
structure of some species-characteristic marmoset
calls, including inter-individual differences. The
effects on these calls of changes in social conditions
were described; these elegant experiments were
indicative of the important function of vocalisation in
the mediation of callitrichid lifestyle, not only in the
wild but also under captive conditions. Hamnah
Buchanan-Smith (University of Stirling, UK), another
participant with scientific experience of callitrichids
both in their natural habitats as well as in captivity,
talked about ways of attempting to identify sufficient
and optimal captive environmental features which
enable primates to deploy decision-making, choice
between alternatives, and environmental control. On
the topic of endocrinology, Caroline Nievergelt
(Anthropology Institute, Zirich) described methods
for routine monitoring of reproductive state and for
reproduction control in captive colonies of conunon
marmosets. Metabolites of reproductive hormones
were measured in urine samples to time ovulation,
detect pregnancy, and assess the efficiency of early
pregnancy termination. Talking about the brain of the
common marmoset, Jean-Pierre Hornung (Universitd
de Lausanne, Switzerland) described, firstly, its
proven value in comparative neuroanatolny, and
secondly some of his own work on the study of
neurochemnical organisation during development and
In the final session our attention was turned
specifically to aspects of marmoset science per se: of
course, applied biomedicine had been included in
some of the presentations and in all the discussions
throughout the 'fundamental' sessions. Leah Scott
(Biology Division, CBDE, UK) provided an overview
of the techniques which have been developed for
behavioral conditioning in marmosets. She then went
on to provide examples of how these techniques have
been deployed in many different areas of research,
both applied (for example, psychopharmacology) and
fundamental (for example, behavioral enrichment).
Christian Schnell (CIBA GEIGY AG, Switzerland)
took up the theme of the continuum between
fundamental and applied research in his presentation
on the marmoset as a pharmacological model for
understanding cardiovascular function, including the
telemetric monitoring of responses to stress events.
Neolropical Primartes 2(4)j, DecemberC 19941
Page 17 iVeotropical Primates 2(4), Dece,,,her 1994
The application of telemetry in physiological and
behavioral monitoring appears to be limited only by
human ingenuity at present. The relative merits of the
marmoset in toxicological testing were succinctly
sunmuarised and elegantly presented by Peter
McAnulty (PHARMACO LSR, UK), who gave many
of those present a first glimpse into what toxicology
actually involves and how those people involved in it
pay great attention to the husbandry and welfare of
callitrichids in the course of their product screening.
Antonia Fehrenbach (Deutsches Primatenzentnun,
Gottingen) provided the first of two papers on the
connuon marmoset in reproductive biomedicine,
describing a microdialysis technique for studying both
paracrine and autocrine events in die ovary of he
common marmoset. Stephen Lunn (MRC
Reproductive Biology Unit. Edinburgh) then
presented an overview of why there is a pressing need
for reproductive research and the advantages and
disadvantages of the conunon marmoset relative to
other mammals, in this context. Paul Watkins
(University of Bristol, UK) completed this session and
the programme with an inimitable account of the
merits of die cotton-top in the study of inflanunatory
bowel disease. Although the main impetus behind his
work is to achieve a better understanding of intestinal
diseases in humans, it will also make an important
contribution to the captive breeding programmes that
have been or are being established for the many
endangered species of callitrichids, a point
emphasized by Anthony Rylands during discussion.
Indeed, Paul Watkins typified the ethos and attitude
that characterized this workshop; he travelled through
the night from England to France in order to present
and discuss his paper, and then had to leave
inunediately afterwards to be back in England for a
meeting that evening. With such motivated and
detennined participants, the EMRG will undoubtedly
succeed in its objectives. The inaugural general
assembly was a success, certainly according to
everybody who attended. For those that did not, the
proceedings of the workshop will be published.

WARREN G. KINZEY A FOUNDING
FATHER OF PLATYRRHINOLOGY
Warren Kinzey died peacefully on October 1, 1994,
at his home in Tarrytown, New York. Although he
had been suffering from a crippling neurological
illness, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), he worked
almost until his final days on the subject he dearly
loved, the neotropical primates. His last project, an
edited book entitled "New World Primates:
Ecology, Behavior and Evolution" was delivered to
the publisher while Warren lay in hospital with the
bout of pneumonia that claimed him.
Warren G. Kinzey (1935-1994)
Warren is remembered not only for his pioneering
research on New World monkeys but also for his
genius as a mentor. He loved teaching and his
inspiration was felt internationally, among young
people across the United States where he taught
and developed a large professional presence in
primatology and anthropology, and also in several
Latin American countries, where he carried out
fieldwork for 20 years. Warren's capacity to
influence so many derived from his warm,
engaging personality and also from his scientific
background. He held degrees and taught in the
fields of anthropology, zoology, biostatistics, and
anatomy. He published original research in such
areas as endocrinology, paleoanthropology,
primatology, human biology, allometry,
zoogeography, conservation and functional
morphology. His platyrrhine research began in the
early 1970's, as a study of form-and-function and
Page 19 A~eoIropicaI Priuaies 2(4,), December 1994
also social behavior. Warren hoped to use the
neotropical primates as analogues for early
hominid evolution. He began with Callicebu.s,
initiating a field project in Amazonian Peru in
1974-1975,, and gradually expanded his focus to
include pitheciins, trying to understand the
adaptations and feeding strategies of this unusual
group of frugivores.
Primatology knew what it would lose with the
passing of Warren Kinzey, a founder and tireless
advocate of platyrrhine studies. And so, in
February 1994 some sixty of us gathered at the
Smithsonian Institution's National Zoological Park
in Washington, D.C., to honor and thank Warren
with a two-day conference on New World
monkeys. He was too modest at first to be placed
on a pedestal, but we prevailed. Although he
arrived weak and almost immobile, there was
delight and pride in his eye, and warm satisfaction
in his voice. We were his family, his friends, his
students, his colleagues, his admirers, and the
bearers of his legacy. In private, Warren mused
about the significance of this gathering, for
meetings about platyrrhines are rare in the United
States. He realized where we had started 20 years
ago, when primatology here was hardly developed
and the research was almost totally devoted to
catarrhines and how far we had travelled. Always
looking forward, Warren asked if we could make
this event an annual occurrence, without a sliver of
regret that he would not be with us again. For
Warren, there was always another project to do and
more people to,encourage. What mattered to him
most was not the discoveries he made but the
understanding he gave.

A Personal Remembrance by Marilyn Norconk
On a November evening three years ago, Warren and
I sat across from each other at his dinner table while
we chatted about how research was progressing at our
field site in Venezuela. I had returned for a short visit
and, as had become customary, my first stop was his
home in Tarrytown, New York. After dinner that
night, he told me that he was having difficulty lifting
his anns above his head to erase the chalkboard
during his anatomy lectures. I tried to determine how
concerned he was about this development, this man
who I had known for 10 years, as a field colleague for
six years, and who had always seemed to be in the
peak of health. Even though he attributed the
weakness to bursitis that evening, he was plainly
worried. After all, he was an anatomist, and knew that
he was losing muscle mass in his upper arms.
Our first meeting was in Peru in 1982 at his field site
near Iquitos. I was looking for a location to study
Saguinusfitscicollis and spent two weeks at Mislhana.
We had conununicated only by letter before that time,
but the youthful middle-aged man I met at Don
Giovanni's restaurant in Iquitos, with pens and index
cards stuffed in the breast pocket of his short-sleeved
shirt was clearly the same person who had thoroughly
(and without delectable anguish or sarcasm) answered
a steady stream of my naive, question-packed letters.
After stocking up with cans of tuna and tuco. oatmeal.
pasta, peanuts, and pisco we departed the next
morning for the relatively short trip to Mislana. My
clearest memories of that brief trip were his patience
and clarity of purpose in conducting his research, his
interest in my budding career even though I was not
his student, and his energy, particularly at 4:30 in the
morning as he cheerfully prepared our daily breakfast
of oatmeal and raisins. He was the first one up in the
morning and the last one to bed at night.
The next time we met, Warren was preparing to do a
long-term field study in Surinam: feeding ecology of
spider monkeys and bearded sakis. I had just
completed my degree and the idea of studying "big"
monkeys was appealing. I took a late flight from the
west coast and joined him in New York for the flight
to Trinidad and on to Paramaribo. 1 soon learned how
he conserved Iis energy. He was asleep within
seconds after the plane took off, and, as I got to know
him better, I discovered that he could be fully
refreshed after even the shortest of "cat-naps". He
loved being in the field. He loved the novelty of each
day. the challenge of dealing with day-to-day
problems of being in a remote camp, fixing the primus
stove, deciding where new trails ought to be cut,
adjusting to the rapid pace set by bearded sakis as they
moved from feeding tree to feeding tree. He was an
astute observer, a problem-solver who had impressive
observational skills and a comfortable knowledge of
and appreciation for quaniattative methods. His
calculator and binoculars were never far away. One
day when army ants had taken over the camp, I found
him down at the stream counting them by the
hundreds and trying to determine travel speed as they
crossed the only log llat provided a safe passage over
We continued to work together, moving our study a
year later to Venezuela. He was not able to get away
from his university duties as often as he liked, but he
was unquestionably field director, even from New
York. He took great joy in his energetic, whirlwind
visits, and I was always amazed at his even
Neoll-opical Primaleols 2(45), D~ecemberr 1994
Neotropical Primates 2(4), December 1994
temperament, his attention to detail, his social skills
with everyone he encountered, his generosity in
making sure that the project was well-supplied, and
his ability to make things happen. We were building a
camp on an island in Guri Lake during the summer of
1988 and it soon became apparent that we had to have
a boat and outboard motor if we were to work there.
Having gone into town to make arrangements for his
flight the next day. he reappeared driving our new
boat, grinning from ear to ear. Clearly, I thought, this
man knows how to have fun.
His generosity extended far beyond the project itself.
We established the custom of taking both graduate
and undergraduate students with us, particularly
during the summer. He firmly believed that field
experience was essential for students. I remember
vividly the occasions when we had reached our
predetermined limit of students and he would call, "I
just talked to so-and-so and they sound great. Couldn't
we find room for them this year?" We advertised in
Physical Anthropolofy Newsletter the first year but
never had to do it again.
I was in the field when the diagnosis of Lou Gehrig's
disease was made. It progressed in an unusual manner
and was difficult to diagnose, even after muscle
biopsies. He was losing the ability to lift his arms, but
his legs were still strong and he insisted on coming to
the field in May, 1992. I had not seen him for six
months and when we met at the airport it was clear
that about 80% of his energy came from his
determination. He tired easily, but we went through
our usual monthly observations. Always creative and
virtually undeterred by his disabilities, he figured out
that if he lay on his back on the ground he could still
use his binoculars and follow the monkey's feeding
activities in the trees above. Unfortunately, we soon
realized that his poor balance made every trip away
from camp a perilous adventure and he was able to
stay only two short weeks.
Tnre to his nature, he turned his illness into a
learning experience. But he continued to work only
with the intensive care and love of his wife, Julie
Kelly. and his students. That must have been the
hardest transition for him to make and I often
heard the frustration in his voice an active mind
confined in a body that would not work any more.
Still, I wonder. If he had not started out with such
an intense joy of living, the course of dying would
have been much, much worse.

It is with great sadness that we report on the death of
Robin Kingston, on the 9th September 1994. William
Robin Kingston received the American Society of
Primatologists' Senior Biology and Conservation
Award in 1993 for his lifelong dedication to the
conservation and breeding of primates, notably
callitrichids. He was a pioneer in setting up and
running primate breeding facilities, first in Europe,
and in the 1970's he was the PAHO/WHO consultant
for the establishment of the national primate breeding
centers in Iquitos, Peru, and Belem, Brazil. Hilary
Box, President of the Primate Society of Great Britain,
wrote the following at the time of the presentation of
his ASP award: "It is not possible to list here all the
achievements of someone who has been active in
biology for more than thirty years. Suffice it to say that
very many of us welcomed the opportunity to applaud
Iris achievements publicly, and to thank the man who
had 'set us up' in primate research. We have always
appreciated his skills, his enthusiasm, his drive, his
charm, and irrepressible sense of humour".

the Rhode Island Zoological Society to help protect the
World's threatened wildlife. Each year grants of up to
US$1,000 are awarded to individuals or institutions
working in conservation biology. Projects and
programs that enhance biodiversity and maintain
ecosystems receive the highest funding priority. Field
studies, environmental education programs,
development of techniques that can be used in a
natural environment, and captive propagation
programs that stress an integrative and or
multidisciplinary approach to conservation are also
appropriate. Proposals for single species preservation,
initial surveys, or seed money for technique
development are not appropriate. Recipients are
required to acknowledge the Roger Williams Park Zoo
and the Rhode Island Zoological Society in any
publications that result from the project. Recipients
must also submit a progress report which includes an
update on the status of the project. This report is due

SPECIAL ISSUE ON NEW WORLD
Volume 34(2) of the American Journal of
Primatology was given over to the publication of
the proceedings of a symposium "Social
Organization in Neotropical Primates: Relation to
Ecology, Body Size and Patterns of Infant Care",
organized by Suzette Tardif (University of
Tennessee, Knoxville), Paul Garber (University of
Aeotropical Primates 2(4), December 1994
Illinois, Urbana). and Anne Savage (Roger
Williams Park Zoo, Rhode Island), held during
the 1992 Congress of the International
Primatological Society, Strasbourg, France, 16-21
The papers in the symposium were centered on
three issues: 1) the relation between body size,
ecology, and reproduction (Dictz el al., Tardif el
al., and Williams el al.; 2) ranging and dispersal
