    Male and female owl monkeys differ chemically in their glandular secretions. Secretions from the pectoral and subcaudal gland are chemically different. These differences are observed in both wild Aotus azarae and captive A. nancymaae.

  3. Hand preference on unimanual and bimanual tasks in Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus)

    Barbara Regaiolli, Caterina Spiezio and William D. Hopkins

    Version of Record online: 19 FEB 2018 | DOI: 10.1002/ajp.22745

    We investigated Barbary macaque hand preference during unimanual and bimanual tasks. A group-level right hand preference was found in the bimanual task. Task complexity, particularly bimanual coordination, seems to be relevant in the determination of primate handedness.

  4. Non-invasive genetic censusing and monitoring of primate populations

    Mimi Arandjelovic and Linda Vigilant

    Version of Record online: 19 FEB 2018 | DOI: 10.1002/ajp.22743

    Genetic analysis of noninvasive samples provides accurate and precise population size estimates. Temporal sampling reveals group membership and individual movements. Better sample detection and cost-effective sequencing will improve estimates.

  5. Rhesus macaque personality, dominance, behavior, and health

    Lauren M. Robinson, Kristine Coleman, John P. Capitanio, Daniel H. Gottlieb, Ian G. Handel, Mark J. Adams, Matthew C. Leach, Natalie K. Waran and Alexander Weiss
