  1. Factors of influence and social correlates of parturition in captive Campbell's monkeys: Case study and breeding data

    Alban Lemasson, Ronan Jubin, Philippe Bec and Martine Hausberger

    Version of Record online: 14 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/ajp.22632

    Based on breeding data with captive Campbell's monkeys, we found a female-biased sex-ratio as well as a non-random seasonal, weekly, and daily timing of parturition. We also describe a Campbell's monkey birth and its social consequences.

  3. Socially transmitted diffusion of a novel behavior from subordinate chimpanzees

    Version of Record online: 7 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/ajp.22642

    Behaviors seeded by subordinate (but not dominant) chimpanzees were copied by observers.

    This finding contrasts with prior work suggesting social learning bias toward dominant chimpanzees.

  4. Seminal coagulation and sperm quality in different social contexts in captive tufted capuchin monkeys (Sapajus apella)

    Julianne S. Lima, Danuza L. Leão, Karol G. Oliveira, Adriel B. Brito, Wlaisa V. Sampaio, Regiane R. Santos, Helder L. Queiroz and Sheyla F. Domingues

  5. Individual differences in zoo-housed squirrel monkeys' (Saimiri sciureus) reactions to visitors, research participation, and personality ratings

    Zita Polgár, Lara Wood and Marie J. Haskell

    Version of Record online: 2 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/ajp.22639


    • Squirrel monkey personality ratings correlated with response to visitors and research participation.
    • Monkeys approached a viewing window more when visitors were present.
    • Personality differences in research participation may cause selection bias.
