Green monkey plurispecific associations in Senegal: the interspecific transmission of SIVagm must occur frequently in the wild

Green monkey plurispecific associations in Senegal: the interspecific transmission of SIVagm must occur frequently in the wild

The similarities of HIV2 to SIV raise the question of natural interspecific transmission of retrovirus amongst primates. This study tried to evaluate the possibilities of natural interspecific transmission of SIV within a green and a patas monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops and Erythrocebus patas, respectively) population of the Fathala forest (Saloum Delta National Park, Senegal). Methods include a description and a quantification of the interspecific relations between green and patas monkeys.
