The role of timber tree species in the nutritional ecology of spider monkeys in a certified logging concession, Bolivia

Felton, Annika M; Felton, Adam; Foley, William; Lindenmayer, David B


Selective harvesting of timber can lead to population declines in some primate species. As frugivorous primates are important seed dispersers in tropical forests, the reduction of their populations may affect the ecological sustainability of selectively logged forests. This paper is the first to quantify the importance of timber tree species in the diet and nutritional ecology of a primate species. We studied spider monkeys (Ateles chamek) inhabiting a certified forestry concession in Bolivia...[Show more]
