Adaptive Radiations of Neotropical Primates by H. Schneider, A. L. Rosenberger (auth.), Marilyn A. Norconk,

By H. Schneider, A. L. Rosenberger (auth.), Marilyn A. Norconk, Alfred L. Rosenberger, Paul A. Garber (eds.)

This choice of 29 papers grew out of a symposium entitled "Setting the long run schedule for Neotropical Primates. " The symposium was once held on the division of Zoo­ logical study, nationwide Zoological Park, Washington D. C. , on February 26-27, 1994, and used to be backed via the Wenner-Gren starting place for Anthropological study, Smith­ sonian establishment, and associates of the nationwide Zoo. We placed the symposium including goals: to honor Warren G. Kinzey for his contributions to the turning out to be box of platyrrhine stories and to supply researchers who paintings within the Neotropics with the oppor­ tunity to debate contemporary advancements, to spot components of analysis 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 examine of platyrrhines. Contributions to the ebook have been accelerated which will supply a extra entire view of platyrrhine evolution and ecology, to stress the interdisciplinary nature of lots of those experiences, and to excessive­ gentle the imperative function that New global monkeys play in advancing primatology. If this vol­ ume have been to require significant revisions after only one extra decade of study, that might be a becoming testomony to Warren's enthusiasm and his force to continually replace the sphere with new rules and techniques. Tributes to Warren and an inventory of his courses were released in other places (Norconk, 1994, 1996; Rosenberger 1994, 1995).

Progress in Atomic Spectroscopy: Part B

W. HANLE and H. KLEINPOPPEN In 1919, within the first variation of Atombau and Spektrallinien, Sommerfeld noted the significant quantity of data which were accumu­ lated throughout the first interval of 60 years of spectroscopic perform. Sommer­ feld emphasised that the names of Planck and Bohr will be attached endlessly with the efforts that have been made to appreciate the physics and the idea of spectral traces.

Likewise, it would seem by the present-day distribution of the pitheciin genera Cacajao, Chiropotes and Pithecia, that their origin and radiation was essentially in the northern part of the Amazon. Why Chiropotes of southern Para and western Maranhao failed to follow Alouatta belzebul into the northern Atlantic forest is not known, but one can surmise that it is related to its more specialized feeding habitats. The lack of Aotus in the Atlantic forest is surprising considering its occurrence south of the Amazon as far as northern Paraguay.

Both endemic genera, and the most diverse communities occur in the south-east of the region, and it is presumed that the primate fauna originated from a broad connection with the Amazonian forests extending from the region of Sao PauloParana probably at least as far north as southern Bahia. Atelidae Following the growing consensus, reviewed by Rosenberger and Strier (1989) and Strier (1992b), that the atelines (Alouatta, Brachyteles, Lagothrix and Ateles) are the monophyletic descendants of a single common ancestor, the occurrence of the endemic Brachyteles alongside Alouatta in the Atlantic forest has interesting implications in terms of their phylogeny.
