Articles I


Unrelated organisms may sometimes look alike. Mim-
icry (convergence due to exploitation or mutual ad-
vantage) is a Darwinian mechanism which may ex-
plain such similarities. In 1974, Cody concluded that,
for mammals, virtually nothing is known of charac-
ter convergence to facilitate aggressive spacing or of
social mimicry to facilitate gregariousness (see also
Pough, 1988; Vencl, 1977), although both forms of
mimicry are well documented for birds (see Wickler,
1968; Moynihan, 1968, 1981; Cody, 1969, 1974).
These studies concluded that different organisms in
the same populations, guilds or communities may
exhibit similar structures as conventional mechanisms
to promote mutual recognition in predator-prey, com-
petitive, mutualistic or social interactions. Conver-
gent features may help to explain certain patterns of
exclusion, coexistence, social parasitism, hyperpara-
sitism, co-operation or "interpersonal attraction"
within and between species (see Moynihan, 1968),
and this note reviews for the primates traits that may
represent convergence to facilitate recognition.

Table 1 summarizes preliminary evidence for the Or-
der Primates. In brief, 20 species or genera exhibit
characters that are likely candidates for the above in-
terpretations. Eight of the 21 species or genera are
Neotropical, 13 (62%) are Paleotropical. Each ex-
ample involves some apparent type of mimicry among
potential competitors for food, mates or space: five
apparent examples ofintraspecific modeling to a preg-
nant morphology (prominent abdomens) by one or
both sexes: six of intraspecific mimicry of genitalia
(four of six cases exhibit female mimicry of male
sexual structures; Fig. 1); one of interspecific mim-
icry of genitalia; nine of interspecific vocal mimicry;
two of interspecific mimicry of facial signals; two of
generic morphological mimicry; two of paedomor-
phosis and neoteny which may involve convergence
to juvenile forms; and three of mimicry of an estrus
model ("pseudoestrus").

Convergence may entail a one-way (e.g., Cercocebus
to Macaca and Papio) or a two-way (e.g., prominent
abdomens in both sexes of Ateles) change whereby
mutant organism B may become more similar to the
phenotype of organism A (one-way) or both may
model each other more or less mutually (two-way).
In order to demonstrate one-way or two-way domi-
nance, despotism or competition in a two-organism

dyad, it would be necessary to test the effects of cli-
nal variation and to show deleterious effects for one
or both interactants in the absence of the modeled
trait. Subsequent measures of the effects of interac-
tions in the presence of the modeled trait would be
expected to demonstrate less deleterious conse-
quences, no deleterious consequences or facilitation
by one or both interactants. It is unlikely that rigor-
ous tests meeting these criteria can be conducted in
the field. However, the examples of modeled struc-
tures displayed in Table 1 may provide rich tests of
hypotheses concerning the evolution or proximate ad-
vantage of obligatory relationships in general and
competitive and social mechanisms in particular (see
Jones, 1985a; West Eberhard, 1979; Briand and
Cohen, 1984), especially where investigators employ
the tools of game theoretical analysis, removal ex-
periments, or comparative approaches (see Axelrod
and Hamilton, 1981; Jones, 1982).

For example, imagine a hypothetical set of interac-
tions between two organisms, A and B (a "payoff
matrix", see Axelrod and Hamilton, 1981) and the
relative costs and benefits (genetic or other) in each
of four conditions: (1) A mimics B; (2) B mimics A
(both one-way mimicry); (3) A and B mimic each
other or a third model (two-way mimicry); and (4)
neither A nor B mimic the other. Assuming that A
and B use some limiting resource in common, the
competitively inferior organism will experience the
lowest relative payoff across conditions. These four
conditions may correspond, respectively, to social
parasitism (W. C. Dilger, pers. comm; see also West-
Eberhard, 1979) or hyperparasitism; to mutualism or
co-operation (see Moynihan, 1968, 1976); and to "ac-
tive competition" (see Emlen, 1973, Chapter 12)
where B or A may competitively exclude the other in
certain environmental regimes. Features that are mim-
icked or modeled are assumed to be morphological,
physiological (including chemical), behavioral, or

The frequency of mimicry may be much higher than
Table 1 indicates since the subject has rarely been
investigated systematically. Pseudoestrus provides a
good example. Hrdy (1981) is of the opinion that
pseudoestrus facilitates the female's ability to "ma-
nipulate" potential mates, and adult female howler
monkeys (Alouatta palliata Gray) provide a rich ex-
ample of such manipulation among Neotropical pri-
mates (Jones, 1985b). A recent report by Zucker et
al. (1994) suggests that genital swelling may not be a
reliable measure of estrus stage in mantled howlers.
Males employ visual and olfactory cues to assess fe-
male condition and may in part base decisions to copu-
late upon these cues (Jones, 1985b). Although the

methods for evaluating genital swelling employed by
Zucker et al. may require refinement, this study sug-
gests that females may deceive males about their true
estrus condition by mimicking an unreliable estrus
stage. Studies of the confidence of estrus signals need
to be undertaken in other primates.

Most primates are obligately social, and systems of
mimicry assume potential or ongoing interactions
among coexisting individuals or populations within
or between species. These systems of cues, signals,
and signs represent mechanisms of social regulation
and symmetry which facilitate interpersonal organi-

zation. These systems of mimicry may enhance spe-
cies integrity in disturbed habitats where patchy con-
ditions prevail, and the organization of communica-
tion is expected to impose a conservative homeostatic
force under heterogeneous conditions caused by habi-
tat degradation and other factors. Such features may
contribute to the optimization of survival and repro-
ductive success in distressed regimes. Other examples
of "stereotyped" or "ritualized" characteristics may
be interpreted as traits functioning homeostatically
to promote individual recognition within or between
species (see, for example, Smuts and Watanabe, 1990;
Wickler, 1968).

Is mimicry inherently more common in the
Paleotropics than in the Neotropics, or are the present
trends a result of sampling error? Some observations
are suggestive. First Paleotropical species are more
terrestrial than Neotropical, possibly favoring the
expression of visual features. Most of the examples
in Table 1 are signs of visual communication, possi-
bly biasing the results in favor of Old World taxa.
Second, for arboreal species, studies are needed of
the differential architecture of forests inhabited by
primates since such studies may reveal the selective
pressures associated with mimicry in primates in
Paleotropical and Neotropical forests (see Richards,
1973). Third, it may be productive to study interspe-
cific mimicry in modalities other than the visual, in
particular the potential for vocal mimicry with birds.
Species with which primates compete for food and
space are likely candidates for mimicry. Finally, most
studies of "coalitions and alliances" in primates have
been conducted on Paleotropical species. Nonethe-
less, it seems clear that mimicry in both Old and New
World primates can be viewed in the context of sym-
metrical communication and can be related to the
growing literature on reciprocal relationships in pri-
mates (e.g., de Waal and Luttrell, 1988).

Research on convergent, features in primates has the
potential to unify this literature with that of other taxa
(e.g., Mason and Crews, 1985; Pietsch and Grobecker,
1978; Bawa, 1980; references for birds cited above).
In particular, the morphometric quality of traits ex-
hibited in Table 1 allows a high degree of quantita-
tive precision in measurement and empirical evalua-
tion permitting analysis relative to variations in size,
sex, and vital parameters (e.g., age, fecundity, and
survivorship) as well as aggressive and non-aggres-
sive behaviors, structures, signals, and displays.
Where populations are polymorphic for convergent
traits, as Bushmen and Australian aboriginals may be
for prominent abdomens (see Bjerre, 1958; E.
Hagmann, pers. comm.), studies may be undertaken

to reveal the heritability of convergent features as well
as their biogeographical distribution and possible re-
lationship to population differentiation (W. C. Dilger,
pers. comm.; Cody, 1974). Future investigations of
mimicry in primates and other mammals may pro-
duce more than "anecdotal" results (Cody, 1974,

The geographic distribution of Aotus trivirgatus
Humboldt, 1812 was recently extended eastwards as

far as the state of Amapa on the basis of four
specimens collected at Carmo do Macacoari, Itaubal,
eastern Amapi, and on the island of Caviana in the
Maraj6 archipelago, Par& (Femandes, 1993). In 1994,
fieldwork at these two sites resulted in the collection
of a further two specimens of Aotus from the former
(Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi MPEG 24035 and
Institute de Pesquisas do Estado do AmapA IEPA 041)
and three from the latter (MPEG 24130, 24131 and

All ten specimens now collected at these two sites
were analyzed using the diagnostic characteristics
used by Hershkovitz (1983). According to
Hershkovitz, Aotus trivirgatus and Aotus infulatus
Olfers 1818 belong to the gray-necked and red-necked
groups, respectively. His phenetic key to the Aotus
species and subspecies (1983, p.213), showed that A.
trivirgatus and A. infulatus may be distinguished by
just two characteristics: the coloration of the side of
the neck, and the presence (or absence) of a whitish
band at the lateral comer of the eye. The remaining
characters cannot be considered diagnostic. The entire
side of the neck behind and below the ear is grayish
agouti or brownish agouti in A. trivirgatus, as are the
flank or the outer side of the arm, and whitish bands
are found at the lateral comers of the eyes. In A.
infulatus, the neck is partially or entirely orange or
buff, and two small whitish patches are found above
the eyes.

All ten specimens exhibit the diagnostic characters
ofA. infulatus. The animals from Carmo do Macacoari
were indistinguishable from those of Caviana Island,
and the Goeldi Museum specimens of A. infulatus
from Maraj6 Island and the Rio Tocantins. All these
thus represent a single species, A. infulatus, the
geographic distribution of which is extended to the
left (north) bank of the lower Amazon, in Amapi (Fig.
1). Consequently, the known eastern limit of the
geographic distribution of A. trivirgatus is still the
Rio Trombetas, as described by Hershkovitz (1983).
Contrary to Fernandes (1993), then, the occurrence
of night monkeys in the remainder of Amapd, west
of the Rio Trombetas in Pard remains to be confirmed,
especially as the genus was not reported from previous
primate surveys in AmapA (Carvalho, 1962),
Suriname (Mittermeier and van Roosmalen, 1981),
and French Guiana (Roussilhon, 1988).

The presence of A. infulatus north of the Amazon is
consistent with the occurrence of other closely related
taxa on both sides of the lower reaches of the river:
Cebus apella apella, Cebus nigrivittatus/kaapori,
Chiropotes satanas ssp., Saguinus midas ssp. and

(see Torres de Assumpgao,

1985; Queiroz, 1992; Silva
Jr., 1992; Harada, 1994).
Of the primate genera that
occur on both banks, only
Alouatta is clearly
represented by distinct
species; A. belzebul to the
south and A. seniculus to
the north. The apparently
limited distribution of
Aotus infulatus in Amapa
clearly indicates the need
for further investigation,
especially given the recent
observation of enclave po0

Roads can interrupt habitat continuity and reduce the
chances of survival of some species by fragmenting
their populations (Beier, 1995; Oxley et al., 1974;
Wilkins, 1982). Additionally, roads may have a nega-
tive impact on wildlife populations by increasing
mortality through road deaths (Beier, 1995; Comita,
1984; O'Gara and Harris, 1988; Polaco and Guzmin,
1993; Wilkins and Schmidly, 1980). Road accidents
with wildlife also have an important economic and
social cost (Hansen, 1983). These are likely to be
important and increasing problems as roads are con-
structed in wilderness areas and where they cross re-
gions inhabited by threatened species and populations.
Several solutions have been proposed and imple-
mented, including the use of warning signs, road fenc-
ing, illumination, reflectors, and road underpasses and
overpasses for wildlife (Feldhamer et al., 1986;
Gibson, 1980; Reed, 1981; Reed and Woodward,
1981; Schafer and Penland, 1985). These solutions -
which have met with mixed success may be useful
for terrestrial fauna, but their utility for arboreal ani-
mals is uncertain.

Valladares-Padua et al. (1995) demonstrated a simple
and imaginative way of avoiding primate road kills
and connecting isolated areas of their habitat by plac-
ing a pole bridge above a road. They have observed
black lion tamarins (Leontopithecus chrysopygus) and

Neotropical Primates 3(3), September1995

capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella) using the bridge.
Valladares-Padua etal. (1995) mentioned the success-
ful implementation of the bridge (although not sys-
tematically assessed), and made no reference to any
negative effects.

The use of pole bridges in open areas (such as in many
roads) may, however, have a potentially serious side-
effect: primates, particularly callitrichids, may be
more exposed to predators, mainly raptors. To make
the design of the pole bridge constructed by
Valladares-Padua et al. more effective in open areas,
it would be necessary to provide some sort of shelter
while they cross the bridge. This could be achieved
in a number of ways, and using local materials, by
simply building a roof or providing some other pro-
tection such as a web of ropes. By promoting the
growth of creeping vines and other plants, bridges
and their 'roofs' could be camouflaged to disguise
them or make them more appealing aesthetically.
However, care has to be taken to avoid creating in
this way places for other predators to hide (for ex-
ample, snakes). Another issue to consider is that rap-
tors may use poles and other artificial platforms to
nest (Steenhof et al., 1993). In fact, it is a common
management practice to increase raptor populations
by providing them with artificial nesting structures
(Lefranc and Millsap, 1984). Thus, in regions where
this may be a concern, it may be necessary to build
the bridges in such a way as to minimize this prob-
lem, and to monitor them to remove undesired raptor
nests. Finally, having a single pole bridge may create
a bottleneck and make the monkeys (and their travel
routes) predictable, hence increasing their risk of pre-
dation or of being captured by humans. Having sev-
eral bridges would help solve these problems. The
implementation of these proposals would increase the
cost of bridges, but it would be minimal compared to
the costs of losing individuals of seriously depleted
populations. Of course, as in most management pro-
grams, decision of what is appropriate for one site
will need to be determined case-by-case.

It is of great importance to make an objective assess-
ment of the effectiveness and cost of different bridge
designs under various road conditions (for example,
road type paved or dirt and width, intensity and
speed of traffic flow, noise levels, distance to primate
habitats). These evaluations are fundamental in or-
der to convince governments and road constructors
and operators of their value. If effective, as current
evidence and common sense suggest, the establish-
ment of wildlife tunnels and bridges, as well as other
means to mitigate population fragmentation and wild-
life mortality, should become a standard practice.

The buffy-tufted-ear marmoset, Callithrix aurita is an
endangered primate endemic to the states of Minas
Gerais, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, in southeastern
Brazil (Coimbra-Filho, 1991), living in forests between
500 and 800 m altitude (Rylands, 1994). The species
has only recently been studied in the field (Torres de
Assumpqao, 1983; Muskin, 1984; Bueno, 1989;
Correa, 1995). Here we discuss the former and present-
day distribution of the species in the state of Sao Paulo
in the southern limit of its distribution, and also its
habitat and ecology.


Rylands (1994), following Hershkovitz (1977), con-
sidered the species' distribution in Sao Paulo to be lim-
ited by the Rio Ribeira de Iguape to the south, stretch-
ing west between the upper courses of the Rios Tiete/
Piracicaba and Paranapanema, and north to the border
with Minas Gerais. Overall, in Sao Paulo the species
has actually been recorded from 16 localities
(Hershkovitz, 1977; Coimbra-Filho, 1991; Vivo, 1991;
Centro de Monitoramento Ambiental da Serra do
Itapety Mogi das Cruzes). Except for Borac6ia
(22010'S, 4845'W; Hershkovitz, 1977) there is no
locality south of the Rio Tiete at the latitude of Sao
Paulo city, and none east of the ridge of the Serra do
Mar. The species is absent from the eastern slopes of
the Serra do Mar and lowland forests. Four new lo-
calities for the species have been recently discovered:
Mairipora (2319'S, 46035'W), where two individu-
als were observed in August 1981; Atibaia (2307'S,
46033'W), a recently prepared specimen in the Atibaia
Natural History Museum; Santa Isabel (23015'W,
40019'W), based on several observations (see below);
and Fazenda Lagoa, Sao Luis do Paraitinga (c.
2315'S, 4520'W), an adult male collected in 1984,
in the Zoology Museum of the Universidade Federal
de Mato Grosso. The species also apparently occurs
in the Serra do Japi (2314'S, 46057'W; see Marinho-
Filho, 1992), where suitable habitat exists, but as other
Callithrix species have been released there the record
has still to be confirmed, despite several trips we have

Neotropical Primates 3(3), Septemher]995

Page 75

made to the area.

Extensive fieldwork from 1982 to 1995 in the puta-
tive range of Callithrix aurita in the mountains of the
Ribeira de Iguape valley and in southeastern Sao
Paulo, including such well-protected areas as Fazenda
Intervales, the State Parks of Alto Ribeira, Ilha do
Cardoso and Carlos Botelho, and the Jureia Ecologi-
cal Station, and also in the municipalities of Juquitiba
and Miracati in the Serra de Paranapiacaba, has con-
sistently failed to find evidence for the presence of
the species. The only callitbrichids occurring in south-
ern Sao Paulo are the black-faced liontamarin,
Leontopithecus caissara (lowlands and isolated
mountain ranges from Canandia to Guaraquegaba,
Parand; see Martuscelli and Rodrigues, 1992), and
the introduced black-tufted-ear marmoset Callithrix
penicillata (Fazenda Serrana, municipality of Cajati,
and the Serra de Miracatu, municipality of Miracatu).

We believe the actual southern limit of the species'
distribution is located around the present-day city of
Sao Paulo, north of the junction of the Rios Pinheiros
and Tiete, the last forming the southern boundary of
the species' distribution. The only anomalous local-
ity would be Hershkovitz's "Boracdia", apparently
located south of the Rio Tiete north-west of present-
day Bauru (Rylands, 1994). Nevertheless,
Hershkovitz described the locality as in the upper river
Tiete, which would be unlikely. In fact, it is more
probable that the locality refers to the Boraceia Bio-
logical Station, a well-known collecting locality near
the headwaters of the Tietd, and not to the town of
Borac6ia, which is near Bauru.

The southern limit of the distribution of C. aurita is
close to Ipanema (2326'S, 47036'W), today
Aranoiaba da Serra, the type locality of the black lion
tamarin, Leontopithecus chrysopygus, a species origi-
nally widespread south of the Tiete and north of the
Paranapanema rivers, and formerly found in the low
forests characteristic of the hills behind the Serra do
Mar. It is possible that ecological interactions between
this species and the marmoset, probably competitive
as both favor the same viny, tangled microhabitat for
foraging (pers. obs.), rather than geographical barri-
ers, limited the distribution of the latter to the south.
The low forests characteristic of the transitional hilly
area between the Serra do Mar ridge and the inland
highlands would not offer enough habitat complex-
ity to allow two callitrichids to co-exist, as occurs
with Callithrix kuhli and Leontopithecus chrysomelas
inthe taller forests of southern Bahia (Rylands, 1989).

The western limits of the species' distribution are un-

clear. The junction of the Rios Piracicaba and Tiete
seems to be an important natural limit, but further
north the limits between the distribution of aurita and
penicillata have still to be determined. In the
westernmost locality, the Mogi Gua9u Ecological Sta-
tion (adjacent to the best-known Fazenda
Campininha), on the right bank of the Rio Mogi-
Guaqu, Callithrix aurita lives in cerraddo and river-
ine forest habitat quite similar to that used by C.
penicillata at the Jataf Ecological Station, about 130
km downstream, also on the right bank of the Mogi.
The intermediate area would be worth researching.


We have been able to visit most of the localities where
Callithrix aurita has been recorded in Sao Paulo.
Callithrix aurita has been found, currently, to live in
montane forest and in gallery forest and cerraddo, in
altitudes ranging from 600 to at least 1,200 m. Al-
though there are specimens from Ubatuba, a lowland
locality by the sea (Vivo, 1991), recent fieldwork
failed to find the species there. We believe the speci-
mens were probably collected somewhere on the hilly
country along the old road from Taubat6 to Ubatuba,
perhaps close to Sao Luis do Paraitinga (a known lo-
cality) or Natividade da Serra, rather than in the low-
lands around Ubatuba itself. The forest in the area is
similar to that found at known localities such as
Cunha, not too far away.

Montane forests inhabited by the species are both ev-
ergreen and semideciduous, usually with a low
(around 15 m) and even canopy with few or no
emergents and mostly slender trees, sometimes with
multiple trunks. The common denominator of all lo-
calities where C. aurita is known to live is a dense
understorey of tangled vines (in drier forests) or bam-
boo (in montane areas). Localities where C. aurita
has been found share a seasonal climate with dry, cold
winters when frosts and mist are common due to alti-
tude or proximity to river bottomlands. Most locali-
ties are under the influence of the rain-shadow of the
Serra do Mar or other mountain ranges, which evi-
dently explains the more seasonal climate and differ-
ences in vegetation structure and successional dynam-
ics (see below).

Marmosets have been recorded in habitat patches
found mostly on hilltops where the effects of the shal-
low soil, wind, frost and mist result in a stunted, viny
or bamboo-rich forest (contrary to the conditions in
the valleys) and, in localities farther inland such as
Barreiro Rico and Mogi-Guaqu, in second-growth and
edge areas where vines are dominant. Callithrix aurita

seems dependent on disturbed areas where some edge
effect, resulting in a growth of vines or bamboo, is

During fieldwork conducted in June 1995 (see be-
low) in a montane site in the Serra da Mantiqueira
massif (Santa Isabel) and another located in the
planalto (Mogi-Gua9u), we located groups of C.
aurita only in patches of forest or cerradao where
tangled vines were common. It is interesting to note
that the abundance of vines in the cerraddo studied is
apparently due to the lack of fires for several years,
which has allowed a build-up of dead vines. Torres
de AssumpqAo (1983) and Muskin (1984) also found
the species to favor vine-tangled.areas, spending more
time in bamboo and vine-covered trees, where it found
most of its food.

The patchy habitat favored by C. aurita is similar to
that preferred by other species of Callithrix, a group
favoring, successional, disturbed and edge habitats
(Stevenson and Rylands, 1988; Rylands, 1995). Such
a preference is probably due to the greater availabil-
ity of invertebrate prey in such habitats (Janzen, 1973),
a result of the low prevalence of plants with chemical
defenses against herbivory (see Marquis and Braker,
1994 for an overview). Also many of the gum-pro-
ducing trees and vines used by the marmosets are edge
or early successional species, including legumes.

The dependence on tangled, successional or edge
habitats probably explains the absence of C. aurita
from lower slopes (under 500 m) of the Serra do Mar
and of the coastal plain forests. In Sao Paulo, a dense
undergrowth of bamboo (mainly Guadua, Chusquea
and Merostachys spp.) only begins to become com-
mon in forest above 500 m altitude. Also the "edge
effect" that results in a dense cover of vines sharply
marking the forest edge or completely dominating
small woodlots observed inland, where there is a
marked dry season, is mostly absent from forests in
the Serra do Mar and the coastal plain of Sao Paulo.

Natural History

Population densities of Callithrix aurita were obtained
in two localities, the montane Santa Isabel and
planalto at Mogi-Guaqu (Fig. 1). Santa Isabel is in a
2,200 ha private property, at the southern tip of the
Serra da Mantiqueira at an altitude of 700-1,200m.
Most (752 ha) of the remaining forested area is
covered by montane broadleaved perennial forest
(Eiten, 1970), located on the valley bottoms and lower
slopes of the hills, while 162 ha ofhilltops are covered
by montane mesophytic semideciduous forest (Leitao-

Filho, 1992). The remaining area is covered by
Eucalyptus. Mogi-Guaqu covers part of the Mogi-
Guaqu Ecological Station and Experimental Station,
and the adjoining Mogi-Guaqu Biological Reserve
(Fazenda Campininha), with a patchwork of mostly
disturbed gallery forest along the Rio Mogi-Guaqu
(362 ha), cerraddo or low sclerophylic forest (619
ha) and old Pinus and Eucalyptus plantings with an
undergrowth of native species (137 ha). The area has
been described by Vuono et al. (1982), Mantovani
(1984, 1987) and Mantovani et al. (1989). The only
other primate found both at Santa Isabel and Mogi-
Guaqu was the black-fronted titi, Callicebus
personatus nigrifrons.

Both areas were visited in June 1995, a few weeks
apart, and censused by strip transects. A total of 85
km was walked in Santa Isabel during six days (10
km in riverine forest, 12 in forest bordering a water
reservoir, 29,5 in montane forest, 25.5 in hilltop for-
est and eight in planted forest with native under-
growth). At Mogi-Guaqu 48.1 km were walked dur-
ing four days (26 km in gallery forest, 19.6 in cerradao
and 2.5 in planted forest with native undergrowth).
Long distance and contact calls made by marmosets
could be detected from a distance of at least 100 m,
and the means by which most groups were located
involved the use of "playback" of recorded vocaliza-
tions. Whenever possible the marmosets were fol-
lowed, but only at Santa Isabel were they tame

Eight different groups were contacted 12 times at
Santa Isabel. Eight contacts were made in hilltop for-
est, two in valley forest and two in the transition be-
tween them, suggesting a selection for the hilltop habi-
tat. At Mogi-Guaqu, three groups were located four
times, once in cerraddo and three times in gallery
forest. In this case, we consider the sample size too
small to characterize any habitat preference. Overall
density at Santa Isabel was 1 group/142 ha and 1
group/240 ha at Mogi-Guaqu, but the latter is prob-
ably an underestimate. A low population was also
estimated for Barreiro Rico (Milton and Lucca, 1984).

In a previous visit to Mogi-Guaqu on 29 April 1988,
three different groups were located, one in gallery
forest and two in planted forest with native under-
growth. One of the groups was crossing a road from
an old Eucalyptus grove to native forest. From this
observation it is clear that C. aurita can use planted
forest at least as corridors for moving between habi-
tat patches and, probably, for foraging when there is
enough native vegetation growing in the undergrowth.

Group sizes at Santa Isabel were 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 7, 8 and
11. Five groups observed at Mogi-Guacu in 1988 and
1995 had 4, 5, 5, 6 and 8 individuals. Group compo-
sition could not be assessed. No dependent infants
were seen at Mogi Guaqu. At Santa Isabel two groups
had infants beginning to move independently, one in
a group of five, and two in a group of eight.

At Santa Isabel, the marmosets were observed prob-
ing for invertebrates in mounds of leaves in vine
tangles and among the roots of an epiphytic Araceae.
They were also observed feeding on the fruits of
Protium cf. widgrenii (Burseraceae), Ficus organensis
(Moraceae), Myrcia rostrata (Myrtaceae), Prunus
sellowi (Rosaceae) and Matayba oleaginoides
(Sapindaceae). Two trees of the gum-producing le-
gume Piptadenia gonoacantha were found in an area
used by a marmoset group with holes probably pro-
duced by marmosets, but gum-eating was not actu-
ally observed. Crescent-shaped holes and scars were
also found to cover most of the trunk of two Tapirira
guianensis in a riverine forest patch at Mogi-Guaqu.
These observations suggest that C. aurita feed on
gums, as indicated by Torres de Assumpqlo (1983).


Callithrix aurita is presently known from five pro-
tected areas in Sao Paulo: Cantareira State Park, Mogi
Guaqu Ecological Station (including the contiguous
Biological Reserve), Bananal Ecological Station,
Nfcleo Cunha of the Serra do Mar State Park and
Serra do Itapety Municipal Park. Of these, the largest
is Cantareira, with 5,800 ha.

The largest continuous forest fragment where the spe-
cies is known to occur in Sao Paulo is a 50 km stretch
along the southern Serra da Mantiqueira, from Santa
Isabel west to the Serra da Cantareira, and north to
Atibaia. The habitat is best preserved along the
Cantareira-Santa Isabel axis, where the forest is still
continuous, but it is fragmented towards Atibaia and
in the peripheral areas. Both Mogi-Gua9u and Barreiro
Rico are small and isolated, and may not have viable

The main threat to the survival of the species is habi-
tat fragmentation by real estate enterprises, mainly
weekend and small holiday estates, and closed con-
dominiums, and the introduction of other Callithrix
species from releases made by wildlife officers. Parts
of the Cantareira park have also been occupied by
shantytowns, and invasions by homeless people are
common. Despite the fact that most of the area has
some degree of legal protection as an Environmental
Protection Area, effective protection and management
of the forested areas is wanting. Introduced marmo-
sets occur both at Cantareira and Serra do Japi, threat-
ening the native species with competition and hybrid-

With continuous pressure from people wanting to live
in more pleasant locations than Sao Paulo city, and
the growth of the now 12 million inhabitant-mega-
lopolis toward the Serra da Cantareira, long-term vi-
ability of the best Callithrix aurita habitat so far
known in the state, and of most of the known popula-
tions, remains uncertain.

The Rio Mauds marmoset (Callithrix mauesi) was
recently described by Mittermeier et al. (1992), based
on one specimen deposited in the scientific collection
of the Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi holotypee:

MPEG-22177) and two social groups in the wild,
including seven live animals captured and the birth
in captivity of two infants in the collection of Marco
Schwarz. The new species was placed in the tassel-
eared subgroup of the Callithrix argentata species
group (Hershkovitz, 1977; Vivo, 1991; Mittermeier
et al., 1992). This was due to it being considered a
close relative of C. humeralifera and C. chrysoleuca,
and presenting as diagnostic features the shape and
placement of the ear tufts and their erect, "neatly
trimmed" appearance, the dark fur coloration, the
absence of the characteristic light mantle of C.
humeralifera, and the light orange tint to the

All specimens cited by Mittermeier et al. (1992)
originated from the type locality, on the left bank of
the Rio Mauds-Agu (a widening of the Rio Mau6s),
opposite the town of Mauds, Amazonas state, Brazil
(0323'S, 5746'W). Based on information from local
people in 1985, the authors presumed that the species
occurred in the area between the Rios Mauds, Parand
Uraria, and Abacaxis. During a recent expedition to
the region, a new locality record was obtained for
this species, confirming in part the proposed range
(Fig. 1). Three adult specimens, a male and two
females (MPEG-23962, 23963, 23964), were
collected at the locality of Santa Maria, right bank of
the lower Rio Abacaxis, municipality ofNova Olinda
do Norte, Amazonas state (0354'S, 5846'W). The
material included skins and skulls, skeletons,
endoparasites, and blood and liver samples for genetic

studies, as well as stomach and intestinal contents.
The gut measurements were also taken. The
marmosets were in a small patch of secondary forest,
near a guaranA (Paulinia cupana) plantation.. C.
mauesi was particularly abundant in this area (Silva
Jr. and Noronha, in prep.). Although it was not
possible to visit the area, local people also reported
the occurrence of C. mauesi in the vicinity of the town
of Abacaxis, right bank of the Rio Abacaxis (0355'S,
5845'W), a few kilometers below Santa Maria.
Locals, including a hunter, reported its absence
however, from Sao Joao, left bank of the Rio
Marimari, near its confluence with the Rio Abacaxis
(0357'S, 5848'W), and two other places on the left
bank of the Rio Abacaxis, opposite Santa Maria. This
suggests that the Rio Abacaxis is the limit to its range
in the southwest. C. mauesi may be partially sympatric
with a newly described species of bare-eared
marmoset (Silva Jr. and Noronha, in press) on the
right bank of the Rio Abacaxis, according to
information obtained from the localities of Abacaxis
and Santa Maria cited above, and also based on the
data available for the paratypes of the new species
(MPEG-23959, 23960), originating from the locality
of Terra Preta, right bank of the middle Rio Abacaxis
(0449'S, 5826'W). However, this remains to be

Located in western Rond6nia (Fig. 1), the 258,000
ha Guajara-Mirim State Park was decreed in 1990.
The Park is just over 200 km south-west of the Samuel
Ecological Station, the primate fauna of which is well-
known from the rescue operation during the construc-
tion of the Samuel Hydroelectric Reservoir (Schneider
et al., 1990). Seven diurnal primates are found at
Samuel, including Saguinus fuscicollis which has a
distribution otherwise restricted to the west of the Rio
Madeira (Hershkovitz, 1977), but excluding howler
monkeys, Alouatta.

An equivalent primate community was encountered
on the west or left bank of the Rio Jiparana at Calama,
100 km northwest of Samuel (Fig. 1), but not east of
this river, which plays a role in the zoogeography of
at least five platyrrhine genera (Ferrari and Lopes,
1992). As no major river or other geographic barrier
apparently separates these two sites from Guajard-
Mirim, an equivalent primate community would be
expected at this site. However, while seven diurnal
monkeys were also observed during the preliminary
survey at Guajara-Mirim in August 1995 reported here
(Table 1), the composition of the primate community
was different from that at the two sites described
above, with the addition of howler monkeys, Alouatta
seniculus, and omission of marmosets, Callithrix
emiliae. The absence of Callithrix was confirmed in

interviews with local residents, although the possi-
bility of marmosets occurring in areas of the Park not
visited during the survey cannot be ruled out alto-

The differences between these communities raise a
number of interesting questions with regard to the
ecology and zoogeography of primates in southwest-
ern Amazonia, in particular because both Alouatta
and Callithrix are among the most ecologically ver-
satile of the platyrrhines.

One factor that may be important in the case of
Callithrix is competition with a second callitrichine,
S.fuscicollis (see Lopes and Ferrari, 1994), combined
with differences in habitat quality, similar to those
that may determine the distribution of Callithrix
argentata east of the Rio Xingu (Ferrari and Lopes,
1990). Primary forest habitat observed at Guajard-
Mirim appeared, qualitatively, to be of lower stature,
more open, and more deciduous than that at Samuel,
as might be expected from respective differences in
latitude, altitude, and precipitation. However, while
competition with a second ateline (Ateles chamek)
may at least potentially be a factor, it is unclear
how these same differences in habitat quality might
have the opposite effect on the distribution ofAlouatta

Far more data are needed before a more definitive
analysis of such factors will be possible, but the
present study does indicate that Callithrix is less
widely distributed in western Amazonia than was pre-
viously thought (Rylands et al., 1993), and that S.
fuscicollis is more widespread.

The GuajarA-Mirim State Park has, until very recently,
been isolated from areas of human colonization, but

Page 82

logging roads and land clearance are now encroach-
ing on its western limits, and the state government is
planning the construction of a highway that will bi-
sect the Park, with predictable consequences
(Fearnside and Ferreira, 1984). For the time being, at
least, there appears to little habitat disturbance or
hunting within the Park's boundaries. Spider mon-
keys (A. chamek) were in fact the most frequently-
observed primates, and large-bodied frugivorous birds
such as cracids (Mitu, Penelope) and macaws (Ara
ararauna, Ara macao) were apparently abundant. S.
fuscicollis, on the other hand, was sighted less than
half as often as Ateles, and mainly in disturbed forest
adjacent to the Park's accommodation.

Minha resposta a questdo proposta no titulo 6
amboss". A reintrodugiojd salvou vdrias esp6cies da
extingao (Conway, 1989) e seu valor como uma
ferramenta conservacionista 6 indiscutivel. No
entanto, neste artigo, gostaria de enfatizar o lado negro
das reintroducoes para evitar que elas se tomem uma
atividade rotineira (por exemplo, Agoramoorthy,
1995). Nada do que serd discutido aqui 6 novo. A
Uniao Mundial de Conserva9ao (UICN) tern diretrizes
explicitas sobre as situa9ges em que as reintrodug6es
devem ou nao ser utilizadas (IUCN, 1987). Neste
artigo, uso "reintrodug9ao" no sentido amplo que inclui
aumento de estoques ji existentes.

Existem vdrios aspects negatives sobre a soltura de
animals em areas em que a esp6cie jA existe. Estes
incluem a ruptura de rela9oes sociais ji existentes, a
exclusao de individuos quando a populagao esta
pr6xima i capacidade de suporte do ambiente, e a
degrada9ao do habitat por popula96es mantidas
artificialmente densas. No entanto, gostaria de enfocar
o problema das doengas, porque este tern a maior
chance de provocar catAstrofes (Viggers et al., 1993).

Somente agora as doengas transmitidas ao ser human
por primatas estao chamando aten9ao do pTiblico. E
important lembrar que as doengas podem ser
transmitidas tamb6m em sentido inverso, como 6 o
caso de tuberculose em chimpanz6s (Viggers et al.,
1993). Doengas que normalmente nao causam
conseqiiencias s6rias para as popula96es (mas nao
necessariamente para individuos) podem ser critics
quando a populac9o tamb6m esta sendo impactada
pela destruig9o de seu habitat.

As pessoas que estao soltando os animals alegam que
eles sao aparentemente saudaveis. Pordm, muitas
doengas que podem ser fatais sob condi96es naturais
de stress climitico e nutritional, podem nao apresentar
sintomas em cativeiro. A tuberculose no home 6
um caso cl6ssico. Estima-se que 30% da popula~go
seja portadora do bacilo sem apresentar sintomas. No
entanto, sob condi9ges de desnutrigo, como acontece
em epocas de guerra, epidemias assustadoras sLo

Page 83

A declaraqao de que o animal foi submetido a um
exame veterinario prdvio A soltura nao invalida este
argument. Potencialmente, estamos tratando de
doengas cujos sintomas sao desconhecidos. Nenhum
m6dico do mundo poderia ter identificado o virus HIV
nos primeiros portadores assintomaticos. Mesmo
depois do aparecimento de milhares de pessoas com
sintomas de AIDS, passaram-se anos ate o virus ser
isolado. Exames veterindrios sao artificios utilizados
para reduzir o risco quando n6s ja julgamos que os
beneficios da introdugao sao potencialmente muito
maiores que o risco de causar a extin9ao da popula9qo/

0 fato de a esp6cie ser comum e de ampla distribuicao
nao indica que a doenga nao afetarA a populagao. Os
coalas da Australia sao dizimados regularmente por
epidemias em vastas Areas e os efeitos da "rinderpest"
nos ungulados africanos 6 bern conhecido. Na pior
das hip6teses, uma especie comum pode se recuperar
mas, ao long do process, transmite a doen9a para
esp6cies raras e ameagadas.

Qual 6 a possibilidade de uma dada introdugao
desencadear uma epidemia catastr6fica? Certamente
6 menor que um em vArios milhares. Isto justificaria
a soltura? Somente se ignoramos a estatistica. A
realidade 6 que, a cada ano, milhares de animals estso
sendo press e doados. Individualmente, a soltura de
cada um represent pouco risco. Em conjunto, elas
representam um dos maiores perigos para as
popula96es silvestres de primatas. Os primat6logos
neotropicais deveriam assumir as diretrizes da UICN
para tentar reduzir os riscos.

As reintroduq6es e o aumento de estoques de algumas
esp6cies, como os micos-le6es, precisa continuar. Em
l1guns casos, a soltura de uma especie comum para
testar a metodologia antes de tentar corn a especie
ameagada 6 aconselhivel. No entanto, a soltura
rotineira de individuos em desacordo com as diretrizes
da UICN deveria ser desestimulada.

Ningu6m quer sacrificar um individuo, especialmente
um primata. Porim, muitas vezes, do ponto de vista
da conservagao de esp6cies e a manuteng o da
biodiversidade, esta 6 a attitude mais apropriada. Atd
do ponto de vista educational, sacrificar o animal pode
ser recomendAvel. A pessoa que tira um animal da
natureza ou estimula a prdtica atraves do comdrcio
nas feiras deveria sentir o gosto amargo de ter acabado
com a vida biol6gico do individuo. Soltar o animal
na natureza para ameagar os estoques selvagens nao
deve substituir esse gosto amargo pela sensa9ao de
ser um her6i que esta ajudando a especie sobreviver.

O aparecimento de animals nas ruas dos bairros da
periferia da cidades 6 sinal de que seus habitats
naturais estao sendo destruidos. LevA-los para outras
dreas e solta-los talvez resolve problems politicos e
emocionais mas a agao 6 neutra ou negative em terms
de conservagao.

As seguintes prioridades sao recomendadas para
pessoas e 6rgaos que recebem primatas ou outros
animals silvestres:

1) Tentar alojar o animal num zool6gico que participe
de um program de reprodugao em cativeiro. Isto 6
ficil para todos as espdcies ameagadas de extincao.

2) Entregar o animal para um grupo que esta tentando
recuperar a esp6cie atravds de um piano de manejo
que esteja de acordo corn as recomendaq6es da UICN.
O Institute Brasileiro do Meio Ambiente (Ibama) pode
indicar estes grupos.

3) Doar o animal para um institute de pesquisa para
estudos comportamentais, fisiol6gicos, morfol6gicos
ou taxon6micos.

4) Sacrificar o animal e se descartar do cadAver sob
orientagio veterinaria.

Quando a soltura do animal 6 realizada por razoes
emocionais ou politicos do tipo "para ingles ver", os
praticantes devem ser explicitos sobre seus motivos
e nao tentar implicar valor conservacionista na aco.
Inclusive, eles deveriam ter a coragem de admitir que
preferem que o animal morra na natureza corn os
riscos concomitantes para a especie, ao invds de
assumir a real responsabilidade pelo manejo da vida

A long-term behavioral ecology study of red uakari
(Cacajao calvus ucayalii) was begun in April 1993
in northeastern Peru, approximately 110 km south of
Iquitos, along the Quebrada Blanco and adjacent to
the Reserva Comunal Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo (see
Aquino, 1995). The principal investigator of this
project, Suzi Leonard, works under the auspices of
the Detroit Zoological Institute, and under the
direction of Cynthia Bennett, Research Zoologist at
the Dallas Zoo. The project was initiated in
cooperation with I.V.I.T.A./The Peruvian Primate
Project, and continues in conjunction with the
biological science departments of the Universidad
Nacional de La Amazonia Peruana in Iquitos.
This subspecies of uakari has been little studied in
the wild. The critical information on the species comes
from the work of Ayres (1986) with the white uakari
(C.c.calvus) in Brazil. Ayres' long-term uakari work
gives this species as a flooded-forest specialist. Our
findings indicate that the red subspecies in our study
area spend at least part of their time in terra firme
forests. During the 1500+ hours searching for and
following red uakari, we have totaled 270+ contact
hours with the animals over 14 months (April 1993 -
December 1995). All of these contact hours were in
terra firme forests (following Encarnaci6n, 1985). The
approximately 90 km study area abuts flooded forest
on the west, and possibly on the south, and the uakari
may be spending time out of the study area in these
locations. Based on search time versus contact time,
we know these groups use immense ranges. Day range
lengths averaged 7.3 km.
During four months in 1994, we totaled 151.5 hours
of behavioral scans on red uakari groups, taken at
15-minute intervals (Altmann, 1974). Interestingly,
almost 30% of those scans caught the uakari in
association with other species of primates; and 76%
of their associative time was with woolly monkeys
(Lagothrix lagotricha). During the next two years,
we will be concentrating on the food selection of both
the uakari and the woollies, in and out ofpolyspecific
groups, in an attempt to determine whether there is a
resource advantage to association for one or both
species. We also predict that, in an area where large

eagles, including the harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja)
still prey on primates (pers. obs.), avian predator
protection (Struhsaker, 1981) may prove influential
in uakari-woolly monkey decisions to associate.
In July 1995, with the aid of Kenneth Glander (Duke
University Primate Center), Fred Koontz (Wildlife
Conservation Society), and Wendy Westrom (DVM),
we will be radio-collaring several uakari. Hopefully,
telemetry will improve our contact time, help us to
define home range boundaries, and identify individu-
als for edification of social systems.

impossible without the strong encouragement of Dr
Ron Kagan, Director of the Detroit Zoological
Institute. We thank Filomeno Encamaci6n for his

includes vines for climbing which can be moved
around for variety. Similar environmental
enrichmnents are also provided to the pair off exhibit.

In addition to providing the black lion tamarins with
a stimulating environment, the Central Park Wildlife
Center aims to educate the public about the threats to
this species. Graphics explain that the endangered sta-
tus of the black lion tamarin is due to the destruction
of their rain forest home. The Wildlife Center also
has two other types of tamarins, the cotton-top,
Saguinus oedipus, and the golden-headed lion tama-
rin, L. chrysomelas, which also provide opportuni-
ties for education. In addition, a stage show presented
for zoo visitors uses cotton-top tamarin puppets to
educate children about the destruction of the forest,
and the importance of saving this environment for
tamarins and other animals which live there.

The 1994 Studbook for the golden-headed lion tama-
rin, Leontopithecus chrysomelas, was recently pub-
lished by the Royal Zoological Society of Antwerp
on behalf of the International Recovery and Manage-
ment Committee for the species. This, the 7th Inter-
national Studbook, prepared by Helga De Bois,
Antwerp Zoo, covers the period 1 January 1994 to 31
December 1994. It contains information on animal
identities and locations, sex, parentage, and causes
of deaths. In addition, it includes a list of addresses
of holders, data on the current demographic and ge-
netic status of the population, and a bibliography. It
is maintained in SPARKS, developed by the Interna-
tional Species Information System (ISIS), and is avail-
able free of charge from the studbook keeper.

On 31 December 1994, the number of living animals
in captivity was 616, distributed through Brazil (245
in 13 institutions), North America (99 in 19 institu-
tions), Europe (233 in 25 institutions) and Asia (39
in two institutions). The number of founders increased
from 108 to 160 (33 without living descendants). The
percentage growth of the population during 1994 was

The first international studbook for Saguinus
imperator imperator and S. i. subgrisescens (1991)
was compiled by Lee Nesler, Pittsburgh Zoo (Nesler,
1993). The first studbook for the European popula-
tion of emperor tamarins has now been compiled by
the Studbook keeper and EEP Coordinator for the
species, Eric Bairrao Ruivo, with assistance from
Cristiane Silveira, both of the Lisbon Zoo, Portugal.
It was sponsored by Compaq, and covers the entire
history of the species in Europe up to 31st December
1994. The emperor tamarin EEP was first approved
by the Executive Office of the European Endangered
Species Program (EEP) in 1990, and, till 1994, Rob
Colley, Penscynor Wildlife Park, was coordinator.
Eric Bairrao Ruivo took over in 1994. The Studbook
is divided into five sections: A summary of some taxo-
.nomic and biological aspects of the species; a full
historical listing of the European population; a list-
ing of the living population of the two subspecies by
location; a studbook analysis; and an evaluation of
the progress, status, and future action of the program
for the species in European zoos and animal collec-

The European captive population of S. i. imperator
has never been sizable. It began in 1962 with just one
female, and only in 1976 were three more imported,
and in 1977 a further four animals. The population
grew to a maximum of 15 individuals in 1983, and
declined from there on. On 31 December 1994, there
were believed to be four animals (3.1) in Europe, al-
though only one male (in the Frankfurt Zoo) is offi-
.cially registered. S. i. subgrisescens was first regis-
tered for Europe in 1964, but no records were kept
until 1978. Since then the population has increased
to 128 (63.61.4) animals in 35 European institutions.
The main problem with this captive population, how-
ever, is infant and juvenile mortality .(45% mortality
in the first year); the reason for a lack of increase in

growth rate since 1978. The founder population is 34
(11 are still alive), and all except three have contrib-
uted descendants. The Studbook concludes that the
population is still too small for an adequate breeding
program. Some founders are over represented, but the
coordination recommend that none should have their
breeding curbed, although emphasis will be given to
encouraging breeding in the under represented lines.
The studbook keepers would be most grateful for in-
formation on any research projects on captive or wild
populations of this species.

Research is being carried out on the migration of ado-
lescent female muriquis, Brachyteles arachnoides, at
the Caratinga Biological Station, Minas Gerais. In
muriqui groups the proportion of adult females re-
mains nearly constant as a result of the migration of
the adolescents, an important feature of the
sociodemography of this species (Strier, 1991). The
study aims to clarify why females emigrate, and the
social mechanisms involved. Data have been collected
to answer these, and other related questions, using
the observation technique of "focal-animal" (10
minute observation periods), possible due to the tame-
ness of the group under study (see Strier, 1992). Data
was collected over 12 months, from August 1994 to
July 1995, and has resulted in 1555 focal animal
samples. Dr Karen Strier of the Anthropology De-
partment, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA,
and Sandra Hartz, Federal University of Rio Grande
do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil, are supervising the re-
search, which is supported by a U. S. National Sci-
ence Foundation Grant (BNS958298), the Liz

In March 1995, JHlio C6sar Pieczarka defended his
thesis on the nature and variability of constitutive het-
erochromatin in South American primates. The the-
sis formed part of the requirements for a doctoral
degree in Genetics and Molecular Biology at the Fed-
eral University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre,
Brazil. His supervisor was Dr. Margarete Sufie
Mattevi, and the study was supported by the
Universidade Federal do ParA (UFPA), the
Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte
(UFRGS), the Fundalao de Amparo A Pesquisa do
Rio Grande do Sul (FAPERGS), the Financiadora de
Estudos e Projetos (FINEP), the Brazil Science Coun-
cil (CNPq), the Brazilian Higher Education Author-
ity (CAPES), and Eletronorte (Centrais Eldctricas do
Norte SA). The following is a summary of the thesis.

The aim of the work was to assess the distribution
and variability of constitutive heterochromatin in 10
platyrrhine primate species, and examine the diges-
tion mechanism of DNA by in situ restriction en-
zymes, in a broad study of the reaction of heterochro-
matin to these enzymes. The following callitrichids
were studied: Cebuellapygmaea, Callithrix geoffroyi,
C. argentata, C. humeralifera, C. emiliae, Saguinus
fuscicollis fuscicollis, S. mystax, and Leontopithecus
rosalia. These species show constitutive heterochro-
matin with very different patterns of distribution, de-
spite the similarity of their karyotypes in terms of
chromosome number and morphology. Two cebid
species were studied: Aotus and Ateles paniscus
paniscus, both of which have considerable quantities
of heterochromatin. The determination of correct
chromosomal pairs in each karyotype was made by
sequenced G/C-banding. The constitutive heterochro-
matin was analyzed by determining the in situ diges-
tion pattern using seven restriction enzymes (Hinfi,
Mbol, Alul, RsaI, Ddel, HaeIII and Mspl), sequenced
RE/C-banding, and fluorochrome banding
(Chromomicyn A3 and DAPI). This study permitted
the following conclusions:

Neotropical Primates 3(3), September1995 Page 87

Concerning constitutive heterochromatin in the

a) There are at least four distinct types of consti-
tutive heterochromatin in Callithrix geoffroyi; three
in C. argentata, C. humeralifera, and C. emiliae; four
in Cebuella pygmaea; five in Saguinusf. fuscicollis;
three in S. mystax; three in Leontopithecus rosalia;
and three in Ateles paniscus and Aotus.
b) The comparative study of bands in the
callitrichid genera shows that their size and position
remain unaltered during the evolution of the groups,
but not their composition.
c) Chromosomes with rearrangements that some
taxa have different heterochromatic compositions in
their alternative forms.
d) The composition of distal heterochromatin in
callitrichids suggests a unique origin. It is possible
that this constitutive heterochromatin was originally
accumulated in the distal band of the short arm of
chromosome 6.
Comparing the performance of each enzyme in the
digestion of the heterochromatin in callitrichids;

a) The AluI enzyme showed more intensive di-
gestion than the others in the study of the centromeric
heterochromatins in biarmed chromosomes.
b) None of the restriction enzymes used in this
study showed significant digestion of the centromeric
heterochromatins of acrocentrics.
c) The enzyme RSal digested the distal constitu-
tive heterochromatin found in all four callitrichid
genera, showing a common origin for the heterochro-
d) The differential sensitivity to the other enzymes
of the distal heterochromatin of the various taxa indi-
cated that homogeneity is not complete in callitrichids.
The heterochromatin observed in some of the cebid
taxa (Ateles p. paniscus and Aotus studied here, as
well as Saimiri, Cebus, Alouatta, and Chiropotes) is
equilocally distributed as it is in the callitrichids.

Analyzing the heterochromatin of Platyrrhini in a phy-
logenetic perspective, it was found that sensitivity to
Alul is a characteristic common to the constitutive
heterochromatin of all. The callitrichids are still sen-
sitive to Rsal, whereas the cebids are sensitive to Hinfl
and resistant to Rsal. Amongst the callitrichids,
Saguinus shares with the cebids the largest amount
of the various types of constitutive heterochromatin.

The following was observed comparing the banding
patterns, obtained with restriction enzymes, to C-
banding produced by Barium hydroxide:

a) Variation in both the size of the band and its
b) There are bands observed only with Alul, with
no correspondence in C-banding: cryptic bands.
c) There are C-bands with no correspondence to
traditional heterochromatin regions.
Relating the structure of a given heterochromatin and
its localization in the karyotype:

a) In most species the heterochromatic bands can
be separated into four types, each with distinct char-
acteristics: centromeric bands in biarmed chromo-
somes; centromeric bands in acrocentric bands; dis-
tal bands; and interstitial bands.
b) The centromeric bands of biarmed chromo-
somes are distinguishable from the centromeric bands
of acrocentrics.with regard to their composition. The
former show heterogeneity, and the latter homoge-
c) As a rule, the distal bands are homogeneous, or
at least show a clear common origin, whereas the in-
terstitial bands are heterogeneous.
d) The degree of homogeneity of some bands must
be produced by concerted evolution.
e) The destination of a specific constitutive het-
erochromatin will be defined by its localization in the
karyotype. There are different chromosomal domains
where the heterochroniatins remain isolated from each
By comparing the date obtained in this study to the
current hypothesis on equilocality, it is possible to
conclude that the existence of nearly identical karyo-
types with radically different distributions of hetero-
chromatin eliminates some models that attempt to
explain these distributions on the basis of interphase
chromosomal configuration or on the types of rear-
rangements that would have occurred in the chromo-
somal evolution of the taxa.

Regarding the banding mechanisms by restriction en-

a) In situ differential digestion of a given chro-
mosome segment by a restriction enzyme is due to
the distribution of cutting sites and to molecular in-
teractions between DNA and the chromosomal com-
b) The use of sequenced C-banding made it pos-
sible to distinguish situations where a region was ef-
fectively digested by the enzyme from those where it
merely produced a negative G-banding pattern.

In March 1995, Cleusa Yoshiko Nagamachi defended
her thesis on chromosomal relations and the phylog-
eny of the Family Callitrichidae. It formed part of the
requirements for a doctoral degree in Genetics and
Molecular Biology at the Federal University of Rio
Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil. The study was
supervised by Dr. Margarete Sufie Mattevi, and sup-
ported by the Universidade Federal do Para (UFPA),
the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte
(UFRGS), the FundaqAo de Amparo A Pesquisa do
Rio Grande do Sul (FAPERGS), the Financiadora de
Estudos e Projetos (FINEP), the Brazil Science Coun-
cil (CNPq), the Brazilian Higher Education Author-
ity. (CAPES), and Eletronorte (Centrais Eldctricas do
Norte SA). The following is a summary of the thesis.

This study comprised the first broad inter- and
intrageneric cytogenetic (G, C, G/C and NOR band-
ing) and cytotaxonomic study of the family
Callitrichidae, including representatives of all four
genera: Cebuellapygmaea; Callithrix argentata group
(C. argentata, C. emiliae, C. chrysoleuca, C.
humeralifera, and C. mauesi); Callithrix jacchus
group (C. aurita, C. geoffroyi, C. jacchus, C. kuhli,
and C. penicillata); Leontopithecus (L. chrysomelas,
L. rosalia); and Saguinus (S. midas midas, S. m.
niger). The aim was to characterize each species,
group, and genus in terms of their chromosomes, as
well as to determine the types of chromosomal rear-
rangements that have occurred in the karyotypic dif-
ferentiation of the members of the family. The re-
sults were converted to numeric data and submitted
to phenetic and cladistic analyses to determine phy-
logenetic relationships and clusters among the
callitrichids. The phenetic analysis was performed
using the NTSYS-pc program (UPGMA method) and
the cladistic analysis with the NTSYS-pc (NJ method)
and PAUP programs. Cebus apella was used as an
outgroup in the cladistic analysis. The results obtained
allow for the following conclusions.

Neotropical Primates 3(3), September1995

1) Callitrichids share nearly all the euchromatic chro-
mosome segments.
2) Considering only the euchromatic portion, within
species groups and genera were all found to be
homosequential, with no chromosome rearrangement
differentiating their karyotypes.
3) Chromosomal rearrangements were found which
differentiated groups and genera, with five distinct
karyotypes as follows: a) a reciprocal translocation
differentiates Cebuella (2n = 44) from the Callithrix
argentata group (2n = 44); b) a centric fusion/fission
rearrangement and a paracentric inversion differenti-
ate both Cebuella and the C. argentata group from
the Callithrixjacchus group (2n = 46): c) a recipro-
cal translocation and a paracentric inversion differ-
entiate Leontopithecus (2n = 46) and Saguinus (2n =
46) from the C. jacchus group; and d) Saguinus di-
verges from all others by a paracentric inversion and
pericentric inversions in at least three pairs of acro-
centric autosomes.
4) The variations in the content of chromosomal ma-
terial are due to differences in the amount of
noncentromeric constitutive heterochromatin, the dis-
tribution patterns of which are characteristic in each
group or genus. This suggests that the accumulation
mechanisms of these constitutive heterochromatins
might have occurred after the differentiation of the
distinct group comprising the callitrichids.
5) The phenetic and cladistic analyses separate the
genus Cebus from the callitrichids, which form a
clade. In the callitrichids, the results show that the
marmosets (Cebuella and Callithrix) form a subclade:
Cebuella and the C. argentata group being more
closely related to each other than to the C. jacchus
group. Leontopithecus and Saguinus are also very
closely related, indicating that, if not derived from
each other, they share a close common ancestor.
Leontopithecus are karyotypically closer to the mar-
mosets (C. jacchus group) than is Saguinus.
6) On the basis of information obtained from chro-
mosomes, and taking into account the evolutionary
pathways, it was possible to suggest the karyotype of
an ancestor, as well as proposals for the origin, dif-
ferentiation and dispersion of the callitrichids. If evo-
lution occurred in the direction of a body size increase
(primitive hypothesis), the ancestral form would have
a karyotype similar to those of marmosets. If, on the
other hand, evolution was in the direction of a body
size decrease (phyletic dwarfism), the karyotype of
the ancestor would be similar to those of tamarins.
Both are chromosomally plausible. However, when
taking into account the current distributions of the
callitrichids, the proposal involving phyletic dwarf-

In 1994, Manuel Alfredo Araujo Medeiros completed
his Master's thesis on cytogenetics, chromosomal evo-
lution, radiation and speciation inAteles, for the Post-
graduate Course in Biological Sciences (specializa-
tion in Genetics) of the Federal University of Para
and the Emilio Goeldi Museum, Bel6m, Para, Brazil.
It was supervised by Dr. Regina Maria de Souza
Barros, and supported by the Brazil Science Council
(CNPq), the Brazilian Higher Education Authority
(CAPES), and the Universidad Autonoma de
Barcelona (UAB), Spain. The Emilio Goeldi Museum,
Bel6m, The Center for Forest Warfare Instruction
(CIGS), Manaus, the National Primate Center, Bel6m,
the Teresina Zoo, Piaui, and the Barcelona Zoo, Spain,
kindly provided material for the cytogenetic study of
the spider monkeys. The following is a summary of
the thesis.

The karyotypes were studied of 22 spider monkeys
of four subspecies: Ateles paniscus paniscus, A. p.
chamek, A. belzebuth hybridus, and A. b. marginatus
(following the taxonomy of Kellogg and Goldman,
1944). Four cytogenetic techniques were used: con-
ventional staining, G and C banding, and NOR stain-
ing. The data obtained concerning karyotype struc-
ture and chromosomal variation were compared to
that available in the literature. The results of the analy-
ses, and in particular the geographic variation in chro-
mosomes 6, 7, and 4/12, indicate that A. p. chamek
represents the most primitive form of the genus, which
would have originated in the southwestern Amazon
basin and spread eastwards, founding the ancestral
population of A. b. marginatus, and northwest, giv-
ing rise to A. b. belzebuth. The taxa found to the west
of the Andes would in this case have been derived

from the ancestral populations of A. b. belzebuth. A.
p. paniscus is almost certainly derived from the an-
cestral populations of A. b. hybridus.

The peripheral radiation of Ateles in the Amazon ba-
sin can be partially accounted for by a number of dif-
ferent models of biogeographic evolution, although
the relative distribution of the northernmost taxa and
the phylogenetic relationships between them, based
on cytogenetic data, indicate that significant changes
occurred in the distribution of forests during the Pleis-

It was not possible to define the taxonomic status of
the Ateles forms studied here, although A. p. paniscus
appears to be a monotypic and reproductively iso-
lated from all other populations. The results of this
study nevertheless confirm the need for a taxonomic
revision of the genus, given that at least four karyo-
typically distinct groups- were identified: 1) A.
geoffroyi and A. belzebuth hybridus; 2) A. fusciceps
rufiventris and possibly A.f fusciceps; 3) A. belzebuth
belzebuth, A. paniscus chamek, and A. belzebuth
margihatus; and 4) A. paniscus paniscus.

The Primates, a four-part slide set that takes full ad-
vantage of young people's interest in monkeys, apes,
and the environment, is available for teachers to use
in their classrooms. Drawing on the library and re-
sources of the Wisconsin Regional Primate Research
Center, this set introduces the topics of primate be-
havior, primate conservation, primate taxonomy, and
field work. Accurate and accessible, each part con-
tains 72 slides with accompanying annotated script,
suggestions for classroom activities, bibliographies
and other supporting materials. The Primates has been
tested in schools and revised at the suggestion of
middle and high school teachers. The set is also eas-

Behavior of SocialAnimals examines the social lives
of primates (including humans). Topics covered in-
clude the interactions of infants with their mothers;
the kinds of social groups in which primates live; how
primates communicate; friendly and unfriendly be-

successfully incorporate education, benefits for the
local population, and habitat preservation, are exam-
ined in detail.

Taxonomic Classification introduces the common fea-
tures that characterize the Order Primates. Included
in the set are photos of members of each major group
of primates: Prosimians (eight species), New World
monkeys (12 species), Old World Monkeys (14 spe-
cies), and Apes (six species). Maps and graphics il-
lustrate the geographic distribution and classification
of group.

ference in September 1994. The Project Director is
Dr. Anne Savage, Research Director at the Roger
Williams Park Zoo, Providence, Rhode Island, USA.
The Program is examining what factors are causing
the decline of wild populations. Information is passed
on to government officials in charge of establishing
protected reserves, local officials regulating resource
use, and local people living in the area who are often
competing for the resources needed by the tamarins.
Community action programs have been established
to involve local people in conservation efforts, in-
cluding peer-teaching programs where older children
lead trips to the forest with younger children, as well
as an international exchange of information between
school children in Rhode Island and Colombia that
examines how water pollution affects the lives of the
local community and long-term conservation of natu-
ral resources.

ment of citizens from the country in which the pri-
mates are found will be a plus. The intent is to pro-
vide support for original research that can be used to
formulate and to implement conservation plans for
the species studied.

Eligibility: Primate Conservation, Inc. will grant seed
moneys or provide matching grants for graduate stu-
dents, qualified conservationists and primatologists
to study rare and endangered primates and their con-
servation in their natural habitat. Grants have aver-
aged approximately US$2,500, with a maximum grant
of US$5.000. PCI does not support conferences, travel
to scientific meetings, legal actions, tuition, or sala-
ries at institutions, and overhead costs.

Selection Criteria: Proposals are evaluated on a com-
petitive basis. Applications are screened by outside
reviewers and the Board of Directors of PCI. All ap-
propriate projects will be considered, but the regions
of current interest are Asia and west Africa.

Closing Dates andNotification: Deadlines for all grant
application materials are March 1 and September 20.

Awards will be given May 15 and December 15.

Application Procedure: Grant applicants should write
for application materials. Please submit five copies

Professor Dr. Ernst-Josef Fittkau recently appointed
two new editors-in chief for the journal Studies on
Neotropical Fauna and Environment: PD Dr. Joachim
Adis, Tropical Ecology Working Group, Max-Planck-
Institute for Limnology, Pl6n, and Prof. Dr. Wolf
Engels, Tilbingen University, Germany. The scope
of this journal is research on the biology, ecology and
diversity of the Neotropical fauna. This includes taxo-
nomic and zoogeographic surveys, and studies of
animal communities and their relationships with bi-
otic and abiotic environmental conditions, including
terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems, in the
Neotropics. It is published in the Netherlands, by
Swets and Zeitlinger, but the official language is En-
glish. The first issue under the new editors-in-chief
will come out in January 1996.

Studies on Neotropical Fauna and Environment will
change to a two-column, A4 format, and the number
of articles published in each issue will be increased.
Original research contributions and small reviews (not
more than 15 pages, including figures and tables) are
welcomed. There are no page charges, and authors
receive 25 reprints. Field primatologists are
encouraged to submit their studies for publication.
