This choice of 29 papers grew out of a symposium entitled "Setting the longer term time table for Neotropical Primates. " The symposium was once held on the division of Zoo­ logical examine, nationwide Zoological Park, Washington D. C. , on February 26-27, 1994, and used to be subsidized through the Wenner-Gren starting place for Anthropological study, Smith­ sonian establishment, and pals of the nationwide Zoo. We placed the symposium including targets: to honor Warren G. Kinzey for his contributions to the transforming into box of platyrrhine reviews and to supply researchers who paintings within the Neotropics with the oppor­ tunity to debate fresh advancements, to spot components of study that require extra research, and particularly to aid advisor the following new release of researchers. The symposium supplied the chance to acknowledge Warren as a mentor and col­ laborator to the contribution of the learn of platyrrhines. Contributions to the e-book have been accelerated with the intention to offer a extra accomplished view of platyrrhine evolution and ecology, to stress the interdisciplinary nature of a lot of those reviews, and to excessive­ mild the principal position that New international monkeys play in advancing primatology. If this vol­ ume have been to require significant revisions after only one extra decade of study, that may be a becoming testomony to Warren's enthusiasm and his force to repeatedly replace the sphere with new rules and strategies. Tributes to Warren and a listing of his guides were released somewhere else (Norconk, 1994, 1996; Rosenberger 1994, 1995).

The present-day distributions of the Atlantic forest genera fit with either of these phylogenies, and both would indicate a dispersal (going from most primitive to more advanced) in a south-north direction rather than the reverse (see Hershkovitz, 1977). The strongest arguments for the second scenario (Saguinus and Callithrix as sister taxa), include the fact that lion tamarins lack the phenomenon of physiological reproductive inhibition common to all other genera (Abbott et al. , 1993; Martin, 1992; Garber, 1994).

Whereas southern Bahia probably formed a fairly uniform and coherent center, that in Sao Paulo was probably larger and more complex. A reasonable assumption would be that the Rio Doce center would have extended along the mountains of the interior of the state of Espirito Santo and eastern Minas Gerais, and having as their principal components which differentiated, Callithrix jlaviceps (south of the Rio Doce, Cebus apel/a robustus (isolated north of the Rio Doce), and Callicebus personatus personatus (both sides of the Rio Doce).
