The Guenons: Diversity and Adaptation in African Monkeys by Mary E. Glenn, Marina Cords

By Mary E. Glenn, Marina Cords

"Guenons are some of the most particularly varied teams of dwelling primates, however the precise quantity in their behavioral, ecological, and phylogenetic range has remained mostly unappreciated. This fascinating quantity describes many new features of guenon biology. The authors use the variety of guenons to handle, and infrequently query, a number of significant tenets of primate socioecology. most importantly, this quantity completely demolishes the view that guenons are a uniform radiation." - John G. Fleagle, country collage of recent York at Stony Brook

Example text

Given the extreme paucity of fossil evidence, and our inability to infer rates of morphological change, the dates for the key 33 34 MOLECULAR DIVERGENCE AND INCONGRUENCE cercopithecine divergences based on the first and second codon positions of the COII and Brown regions may indeed be a more accurate reflection of reality. Summary While the phylogenetic inferences based on either the mitochondrial or Y chromosome data presented in this volume may not fully represent the species’ phylogeny, the dates of key divergence points can be relatively confidently inferred.
