By Liza M. Veiga,Adrian A. Barnett,Stephen F. Ferrari

The neotropical primate family members Pitheciidae involves 4 genera Cacajao (uacaris), Callicebus (titis), Chiropotes (bearded sakis) and Pithecia (sakis), whose forty+ species reveal various sizes, social companies, ecologies and habitats. Few are renowned and the longer term survival of many is threatened, but pitheciines were little studied. This booklet is the 1st to study the biology of this interesting and numerous team in complete. It contains fossil historical past, stories of the biology of every genus and, between others, particular remedies of vocalisations and foraging ecology. those stories are built-in into concerns of present prestige and destiny conservation requisites on a country-by-country foundation for every species. A cutting-edge precis of present wisdom, Evolutionary Biology and Conservation of Titis, Sakis and Uacaris is a collective attempt from all of the significant researchers at the moment engaged on those striking animals.
