Abstract

Genetic variations within and between troops of the Indonesian crab-eating macaque (Macaca fascicularis) were studied. A total of 456 blood samples were collected from 29 free-ranging troops in 19 different localities on Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok and Sumbawa. Blood protein polymorphisms were examined electrophoretically. Mean genetic variability within troops was estimated to be Ppoly=12.22% and\(\bar H\)=3.84%. Troops inhabiting small islands showed lower variability. Genetic differences were more marked between troops on different islands than between troops on the same island. Additionally, clinal variations of allelic frequencies at some loci were detected. The genetic features and socio-ecological and evolutionary implications are discussed.
