Research Needs in Captive Primate Colonies

  • Kurt Benirschke
Conference paper
Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)


When the speakers for this conference were invited to participate, they were also admonished to highlight areas that demand attention for research. Specifically, they were challenged to address questions whose resolution, accomplished by targeted research, would materially aid in the creation of self-sustaining populations of captive primates. The following, then, are the most important points brought out in presentations and their discussions; however, most papers here reproduced will raise additional topics whose pursuit is deemed important and which might serve as guideposts to funding agencies.


Perinatal Mortality Perinatal Death Spider Monkey Captive Population Pectus Excavatum
