Intestinal parasite infections in primates implication for conservation Infecciones de parasitos intestinales de primates implicaciones para la conservacion

, : Intestinal parasite infections in primates implication for conservation Infecciones de parasitos intestinales de primates implicaciones para la conservacion. Universidad y Ciencias, 61-72 Numero Especial II

Few studies have documented intestinal parasites in populations of Neotropical primates, and many of those have been carried out on captive animals. This essay reviews the state of knowledge of intestinal parasites in primates focusing on Neotropical species. The factors that affect gastrointestinal infections in wild primates are presented, and the implications on the conservation of primates are discussed. The main factors that affect parasitic infections include primate density, behaviour, age, reproductive condition and diet, as well as humidity and habitat fragmentation of the habitat. It is recommended that primate management and translocation programmes consider the age class structure of the groups and the availability of medicinal plant species as food. It is also important to determine which season is most appropriate for the translocation of primates. Taking these factors into account when designing management programs and making decisions about translocating primate groups will help deter the negative effects of intestinal parasitic infections and contribute to the successful conservation of primates.
