Synopsis:

Here is a comprehensive examination of the newly recognized callimico/marmoset clade, which includes the smallest anthropoid primates on earth. It features sections on phylogeny, taxonomy and functional anatomy, behavioral ecology, and reproductive physiology.

From the Back Cover:

The Smallest Anthropoids:The Marmoset/Callimico Radiation represents a comprehensive examination of the callimico/marmoset clade, including the smallest anthropoid primates on earth. It explores these diminutive primates from a variety of perspectives including: phylogeny; reproductive, social, and cognitive behavior; ranging behavior and locomotion; anatomy; and conservation. In the last twenty years, the number of taxa recognized in this group has increased from three genera and five species to five genera comprising at least 22 species. Additionally, our understanding of the evolutionary relationships among these taxa has undergone substantial revision, and all are now considered to be closely related to one another (including callimicos). This volume is the first to synthesize data on these newly recognized taxa. It features contributions from geneticists, anatomists, and behaviorists around the world, providing access to major findings of key international researchers whose work has not been easily available to English-speaking scholars. These contributors use field and lab data to test major hypotheses on behavior, evolution, cognition, and other issues.

The Smallest Anthropoids:The Marmoset/Callimico Radiation  is a timely forum that identifies future avenues of action necessary to more fully understand and protect this intriguing radiation of diminutive monkeys. It will be of value to field ecologists, conservation groups, individuals working with captive marmosets, natural resource managers in South America, and NGO’s, as well as to primatologists and zoologists interested in social behavior, locomotion and biomechanics, morphology, reproductive behavior, and biology.

Susan M. Ford is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology, and past Director of the Center for Systematic Biology, Southern Illinois University.

Leila M. Porter is Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology, Northern Illinois University.

Lesa C. Davis is Associate Professor of the Department of Anthropology and Special Assistant to the President, Northeastern Illinois University, and Research Associate in the Field Museum of Natural History.

Book Description Springer-Verlag New York Inc., United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The marmosets and callimicos are diminutive monkeys from the Amazon basin and Atlantic Coastal Forest of South America. The marmosets are the smallest anthropoid primates in the world, ranging in size from approximately 100 to 350 g (Hershkovitz 1977; Soini 1988; Ford and Davis 1992; Araujo et al. 2000); calli- cos are not much bigger, at around 350-540 g (Ford and Davis 1992; Encarnacion and Heymann 1998; Garber and Leigh 2001). Overwhelming genetic evidence, from both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA, now indicates that these taxa represent a unified clade within the callitrichid radiation of New World monkeys, a finding that was unthinkable to all but a few geneticists a decade ago (see review in Cortes- Ortiz, this volume Chap. 2). With increasing evidence that the earliest anthropoids were themselves small bodied (under the 0. 8-1 kg threshold that marks all other living anthropoids; see Ross and Kay 2004), the ecology, behavior, reproductive stresses, and anatomical adaptations of the marmosets and callimicos provide the best living models with which to assess the types of adaptations that may have characterized early anthropoids.When Anthony Rylands Marmosets and Tamarins: Systematics, Behaviour and Ecology was published in 1993, contributions focused almost entirely on tamarins due to the scarcity of data on marmoset behavior and the almost total lack of kno- edge about the enigmatic callimicos. Fortunately, this has changed (see Fig. 1). Bookseller Inventory # LIB9781441902924
