In the original Fig. 1, the callitrichids were inadvertently omitted, not just the strepsirrhines as stated in the text. We correct this with a revised figure that includes all primates for which we have data. Because the residuals are calculated from a new regression (additional data points), their absolute values shift slightly; nonetheless, the pattern remains the same: vervets lie very near the regression line of rm versus ln body size (residuals near zero), whereas patas monkeys have a very high rm for their body size. The point to the right of the patas monkeys represents ruffed lemurs, Varecia variegata. Fig. 1

Histogram of the residuals for the linear regression between body mass and maximum potential rate of increase, both log-transformed (data from Ross 1992). The 2 highlighted data points are for vervets and patas monkeys indicating that vervets lie precisely in the regression line, but patas monkeys have ...
