Population changes in rhesus monkeys: Cayo Santiago



Population changes in rhesus monkeys: Cayo Santiago



Tuland Stud Zool 13(1): 1-7



A population of introduced rhesus monkeys increased 16% annually during a 5-year period. Ultimately it consisted of six bands, five of which were formed by subdivision of one of the two original large bands. Divisions occurred during the fall mating season, apparently due to factors other than band size. Of the males at least three years of age about a third changed bands annually. This tendency to shift bore no constant relation to the size or the sex composition of the bands. Nearly all births occurred January to June each year. Mortality rates were greatest in animals less than two years and over six years of age, and in post puberal males. In the adult population the females outnumber males by two to one.
