Species-specific demographic parameters and life history variables are important for understanding how individual primate taxa have adapted to evolutionary and ecological pressures and for conducting interspecific comparisons as well as for conducting population viability analyses and for managing captive populations. Across the study period, group size varied between 25 and 37 individuals, and there was a clearly female-biased sex ratio within all age classes. Females were the dispersing sex, as 19 females born into the group disappeared close to reaching adult body size and were presumed to have emigrated, while seven subadult or adult females joined the group during the study period. We estimated the age of dispersal for females at 5. Our study confirms that males are the philopatric sex, as all natal males have remained in the group and some have begun to reproduce, while no males have immigrated. Females had long inter-birth intervals

The yellow-bellied spider monkey Ateles belzebuth is unique in South America. In Ecuador, it lives in the Amazon and in the eastern foothills of between and meters, but it is most commonly found in places below meters above sea level. This species depends on the high primary forests, generally associated with the clay soil forests of the mainland.

It is also known as the spider monkey with long hair, which has long and thin limbs and the shoulder joints are very flexible, which helps him move between the branches. Spider monkeys live in groups of up to 30 individuals. The females reach sexual maturity between years of age, when they stop for the first time after a long gestation period of just under days Tirira, The main threats are illegal hunting for human consumption of their meat and to have them as pets.

It also faces the loss and fragmentation of habitat, due to deforestation, to convert forests into sites for agriculture and for logging. Ref: Tirira, D. Join more than one million wildlife lovers working to save the Earth's most treasured and threatened species. Sign up. Thanks for signing up!
