- Vocal Response of Captive-reared Saguinus oedipus During Mobbing. Campbell, Matthew W.; Snowdon, Charles T. // International Journal of Primatology;Aug2007, Vol. 28 Issue 4, p971
A correction to the article "Vocal Response of Captive-reared Saguinus oedipus During Mobbing" that was published in the May 30, 207 issue is presented.
- Family Feuds: Severe Aggression among Cooperatively Breeding Cotton-Top Tamarins. Snowdon, Charles T.; Pickhard, Jenifer J. // International Journal of Primatology;Oct99, Vol. 20 Issue 5, p651
A survey of severe aggression occurring over the 20 year history of a cotton-top tamarin (Saguinus oedipus) colony indicated that most aggression was between same-sex individuals, with fights among siblings more common than parent-offspring conflict. Males engaged in severe aggression more often...
- Saving Cotton-Tops. SCHARDT, HANNAH // Ranger Rick;Dec2011/Jan2012, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p8
The article offers information on the cotton-top tamarin including how they spend their lives living in trees, how they only live in a small area in Columbia and have become threatened due to deforestation, and how the group Proyecto Tite are helping to prevent the destruction of their habitat.
- Keratinocyte-Specific Mesotrypsin Contributes to the Desquamation Process via Kallikrein Activation and LEKTI Degradation. Miyai, Masashi; Matsumoto, Yuuko; Yamanishi, Haruyo; Yamamoto-Tanaka, Mami; Tsuboi, Ryoji; Hibino, Toshihiko // Journal of Investigative Dermatology;Jun2014, Vol. 134 Issue 6, p1665
Kallikrein-related peptidases (KLKs) have critical roles in corneocyte desquamation and are regulated by lymphoepithelial Kazal-type inhibitor (LEKTI). However, it is unclear how these proteases are activated and how activated KLKs are released from LEKTI in the upper cornified layer. Recently,...
- Antiphonal Responses to Loud Contact Calls Produced by Saguinus oedipus. Jordan, Kerry; Weiss, Daniel; Hauser, Marc; McMurray, Bob // International Journal of Primatology;Apr2004, Vol. 25 Issue 2, p465
We report the results of an experiment designed to investigate whether captive cotton-top tamarins (Saguinus oedipus ) selectively call back to an absent cagemate. We removed 2 individuals living in separate cages (cycling through the colony so that each individual was removed 10 times) from the...
- 'New men' hold sway among tamarins. Mason, Georgia // New Scientist;12/1/90, Vol. 128 Issue 1745, p30
Reports on findings about the behavior of the male cotton-top tamarins of South Africa in a laboratory colony study made by Eluned Price of the University of Stirling, Scotland. Finding that male tamarins carry infants as part of their courtship behavior; Importance of such behavior to female...
- Vocal Response of Captive-reared Saguinus oedipus During Mobbing. Campbell, Matthew W.; Snowdon, Charles T. // International Journal of Primatology;Apr2007, Vol. 28 Issue 2, p257
Mobbing is an important component of antipredator behavior for animals from many taxa. Callitrichids are small-bodied primates that mob multiple types of predators. Though there have been several observations of callitrichids mobbing predators in the wild, their anecdotal nature provides only...
