PIN’s fact sheets and resources serve as a starting point to find information about key topics in primatology, including research and care, education, conservation, behavior and various primate species.
Each primate species factsheet covers one or more species, including their evolution and ecology, behavior and images. The Primate Factsheets Glossary defines any complex terminology used throughout.
Our Primate Species Factsheets include general and historic information about the primates. If you have updates with reliable sources for any of these fact sheets, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For current conservation status for each species, please search the IUCN Red List.
PrimateLit, a bibliographic database of more than 200,000 citations about non-human primate literature dating from 1940 was deaccessioned in December 2018, given the growth of services like Google Scholar. The old PrimateLit XML raw data files have been archived by Minds@UW.
