l.29,30,No.No.41Page1 1PageAMERICAN SOCIETY OF PRIMATOLOGISTSToni Ziegler - Executive SecretaryVolume 30, Number 1F F FSpring, 2006A Message from the President.We apologize for thedelay in gettingthis issue of theASP Bulletin toyou. There area number ofreasons for this,but the mostimportant was our difficulty inobtaining commitments frompotential candidates to stand foroffice within ASP. As you know,ASP officers are volunteers andwithout volunteer officers itwould be really hard for ASP tofunction. So, since you got thisBulletin, it means we ended upwith a full slate of candidates, butplease know that it was not easyand that if you feel a connectionwith ASP and are in a positionwhere you can commit time andeffort to your professionalsociety, please consider runningfor ASP office in the future.Don’t forget that the deadlinefor Research and Development smallgrants is rapidly approaching (April30, 2006). Also, the Awards andRecognition Committee is lookingfor nominees for our various awards.Please have a look at the ASPwebsite for additional detailsconcerning both R & D grants andawards.Thanks to the early efforts of JeffFrench, we are now approaching thefinal stages of an agreement withElsevier/Academic Press to publishthe ASP Book Series. There aremany advantages of the pendingarrangement to ASP, to ASP authors,and to ASP readers and I willhighlight just a few. Remember thatthe primary goal of the ASP BookSeries is to publish high quality,scholarly work related to the studyof nonhuman primates. The firstadvantage of the pendingarrangement is that we will finallyhave the capability to professionally market our books. We(specifically, Janette Wallis) havedone an excellent job of producingthe volumes in the ASP BookSeries, but we have always hadtrouble selling the books. Ourpartnership with Elsevier/AcademicPress will allow us access to theirmarketing program, a developmentthat will help us sell more copies ofthe upcoming books in the series,but perhaps just as importantly,more copies of the books that wehave already produced (and paidfor). Secondly, Elsevier/AcademicPress is committed to making allvolumes of the Book Seriesavailable electronically. Again, thisis good both for upcoming volumesand for those already published.And finally, Elsevier/AcademicPress will publish the books at nocost to ASP – ASP can only makemoney on one of our own books.Up until now, we assumed all of thefinancial risk for our books. Again,ELECTION TIME FORASP EXECUTIVECOMMITTEE BIOSKETCHESOF THE CANDIDATESON PAGE 3the goal of the ASP Book Series is toadd to the knowledge base inprimatology, however it is morecomfortable to do that when wedon’t have to worry about losing 5,000 to 8,000 each time wepublish a book. I will let youknow when the deal has beenfinalized.The San Antonio meeting (Aug.16-19, 2006) is shaping up quitenicely. Additional details on theprogram can be found withinthis issue of the Bulletin, buthighlights will include DuaneRumbaugh’s DistinguishedPrimatologist’s talk, DarioMaestripieri’s Keynote address, aFounder’s Symposium, anOutstanding Mentor’s SymposiumContinued on Page 7ASP2005PROGRAMOVERVIEWINSIDEIt’s not too lateto register!August in Texas –how couldYour resist!

These awards, funded from the ASP Conservation Fund, are a mechanism torecognize deserving colleagues and students, including those from primate habitat countries - countries withnative primate fauna - for whom the prestige of an ASP award can be a valuable aid to the recipient’s conservation efforts.Subscription Award: This award provides the American Journal of Primatology to worthy individuals inhabitat countries who otherwise may have little access to the scientific literature on nonhuman primates.Preference is given to individuals who will make the journal available for use by students and colleagues.The award is normally granted for a 5-year period. Recipients are requested to submit a brief report everytwo years summarizing the use of the journal. A nominating letter should describe the nominee’s credentialsand his/her primate-related activities, and should explain why the nominee deserves to receive high priorityconsideration. Deadline for AJP Subscription Award nominations: May 16, 2006.Conservation Award ( 750): This award provides recognition and financial support for students andyoung investigators from habitat countries who demonstrate potential for making significant and continuingcontributions to primate conservation. Those eligible include students, researchers, and educators fromprimate habitat countries for whom no more than five years have elapsed since receipt of their terminaldegree. Nominators should provide the name, title and full mailing address of their nominee, along with adetailed statement about the nominee’s qualifications for the award, focusing on past and potential contributions to primate conservation. A copy of the nominee’s vita is requested. Supporting letters from otherindividuals acquainted with the nominee’s work may be submitted. Past awards have been presented by U.S.Ambassadors or other senior officials, thereby obtaining favorable publicity for the award, its recipient, andprimate conservation in the recipient’s country. Deadline for Conservation Award nominations: May 16,2006.The Conservation Committee will make its recommendations for award recipients at the annual ASPmeeting in San Antonio.

The genusSaguinus demonstrates extraordinaryvariability in social organization,with groups commonly containingonereproductivefemale andmore thanone adultmale (i.e.monogynouspolyandry).Genetic (10microsatellite loci for paternity andrelatedness analysis) andmorphological information (e.g.body size and weight, testis size, andage determining characteristics)collected from eight groups oftrapped S. labiatus (46 individuals)were combined with data on socioreproductive behavior collectedduring all-day follows of markedindividuals from three of thesegroups over a period of 18 months(at least one year per group) todetermine: a) to what extent matingand reproduction were polyandrousand monogynous in groups containing multiple adult males, b) theinteractions, relatedness, and shortterm reproductive success of coresident adult males, and c) theeffect of group composition uponthe com-petitive efficiency oftamarin groups.The data from this study builds onprevious data collected on wildtamarin body weight and size, testissize, group composition, dispersalpatterns, territory defense, parentalcare, mating, and the effects ofpredation and are complimented bydata on paternity and relatedness toaddress how male behavior relates topaternity and theadaptiveexplanations forthe evolution ofmonogynouspolyandry intamarins. Anarray ofbehavioral data,including scentmarking, mateguarding,aggression, mateproximity, andintergroup encounters, showinteresting patterns that demonstratemale responses to reproductiveopportunities and allude to a varietyof alternative reproductive tactics.The funding received from theAmerican Society of Primatologistsallowed a local resident toparticipate in the trapping andsampling of the study groups, aswell as in behavioral data collection.Mr. Nacimiento was a crucialmember of our research team. Hetaught us techniques in trappingprimates, while we were able toteach him techniques in animalhandling and marking, collectingmorphological measurements, sterilecollection of genetic samples, andthe proper storage of un-refrigeratedtissue and blood. Mr. Nacimientoalso built upon his experience incollecting behavioral data, learningnew ways to identify individuals,and the various types of data thatcan be collected to study socio-reproductive behavior. Mr.Nacimiento has since been active inother primate research projects andhas even trained other local residentsto be field guides. He will certainlycontinue to be a strong addition tothe primatological community, as henow resides adjacent to the field sitewhich is now a protected area and abiological station. ASP has providedsupport to help add to theknowledge and experience of a localprimate enthusiast andconservationist in Pando.

l.29,30,No.No.41Page9 9PageASP Small Grant Research ReportThe role of female choice for regulation of infanticide in Hanuman langurs (Semnopithecus entellus)Stanislav Lhota , Department of Zoology, Faculty of Biological Sciences, University of South Bohemia, CzechRepublic Report compiled by: Martina Konen‡, Department of Zoology, Faculty of Biological Sciences,University of South Bohemia, Czech RepublicData on social grooming behaviorhave been collected by five observersin one all-male band and in oneharem troop. We have collected atotal of 888 grooming interactions(included female-female, femalemale and male-male). We haverecorded, besides individual identitiesand exact grooming times (inseconds, accounting for brakes), alsosequences of body parts beinggroomed (head, face, abdominalregion, back, hind limbs, forelimbs,tail).Two main problems wereinvestigated in this part of the study.First, the function of allogroomingwas tested. Two hypotheses weretaken into account: Hygienichypothesis and our alternativeDominance hypothesis. According toHygienic hypothesis, allogroomingshould be primarily directed on siteshardly accessible for autogroomingand allogrooming and autogroomingshould be complementary behaviorsin terms of distribution to body areas.According to our Dominancehypothesis subordinant and dominantgroomers should vary in avoiding ofventroventral grooming position(which is often followed byaggressive interaction, is more risky)and therefore should vary in chosengroomee body area. We found thatallogrooming was directed more tosites hardly accessible forallogrooming than to sites wellaccessible, but the amount ofallogrooming directed to differentbody sites was not negativelycorrelated with the amount ofallogrooming directed to same sites.Groomer-groomee dominancerelationships had no effect onallogrooming body distribution. Wefound that sex of the groomee hadsignificant effect on allogroomingbody distribution. Our results don’tunambiguously support or reject oneof these hypotheses. Conclusionsabout the mechanisms of body areachoosing in allogrooming cannot bemade only on the basis ofallogrooming body allocation itself,but the effect of various socialrelations of the groomer andgroomee should be taken intoaccount.Second, The Biological MarketTheory was tested on data set fromall-male band wheresufficient allogroomingand aggressiveinteractions have beenrecorded (287allogrooming bouts, 95aggressive interactions).The main question wasif grooming in Hanuman langursmales serves as a commodity interms of the biological markettheory and what is traded for.Our results suggest that groomingin langur males is traded mainly forgrooming; grooming is closelyconnected to the tolerance (eitherby the trade of grooming fortolerance or by avoiding groomingaggressive partners, or both) andthat dominance relationships didn’tinfluence the distribution ofallogrooming in the all male band.The results could be well explainedin terms of Biological markettheory.Personality assessmentData for this topic were recordedby four observers on one all-maleband. This group contains 30 adultindividuals, 26 of them beingidentified and individuallyrecognized by all observers. Datacollection occurred between 7 a.m.and 5 p.m. The tendency was tocollect behavioral data for eachindividual equally during the day.The total 341 hours of Focal AnimalSampling record have been collectedusing previously prepared ethogram(containing 50 defined behaviors).After finishing of all behavioralobservation, observers ratedpersonalityof s),based onFive Factormodel ofhumanpersonalityand prepared before thebeginning ofthe fieldproject.The main aim of this part of theproject was to acquire two models ofperson-ality, each based on differentdata set, but analyzed with samemethod – principal componentanalysis (PCA); and evaluate theirrelationship. Attention was also paidto methodological issues asadvantages and disadvantages ofapplication of both methods in thefield work or inter-rater reliability.The PCA of behavioral indicesrevealed 7 personality dimensions:Dominance, Sociability, Maturity,Stability, Activity, Alertness andAdolescence. The PCA of subjectiveratings revealed 3 personality

Page 10ASP Bulletin Vol. 30, No. 1revealed relationship between thesetwo models.The results suggest that Dominanceand Extroversion (or Activity) aretraits, which are the easiest forassessment by relativelyinexperienced observers withsatisfactory inter-observer reliability.Strong correlation between thesetraits of both models validatedassessment of Dominance andExtroversion of the questionnairebased model.In summary, behavioral observationanalysis validated use of thequestionnaire technique, with severalrecommendations concerningduration of the previous knowledgeof subjects by the observers andstructure of applied questionnaire.Last but not least, large data set onvarious behavior of Hanuman langurwas obtained. Behavioral profiles ofdominants and subordinates wereanalyzed and lead to interestingfindings e.g. differences infrequency and duration of definedbehaviors.Play behaviorTwo observers have collected thetotal of 50 hours of video record ofplay behavior in langur infants andjuveniles from a harem troop. Therecord was analyzed and ethogramof playing behavior was compiled.All the recognized componentswere classified according to predesigned criteria to evaluate theirdegree of ritualization and the selfhandicapping modes. Main aim wasto test several hypotheses concerning general function of play withfocus on self-handicapping duringthe play. Four playing behaviors,frequent in record, were chosenaccording to criteria of self-handicapping (e.g. head rotation). Twomain hypotheses were tested to* Auction * Action * Auction *Spring, 2006reveal their function in animal play.According to “Training for unexpected” hypothesis self-handicappedbehaviors should be very variableand serve for randomizing situations.Other possible explanation is communication; in that case self-handicapped behaviors should serve asplaying signals and so on they wouldbe ritualized and thus not variable.Further they should be present onlyin social play dyads. Detailedanalyses of the four chosen playingbehaviors revealed high variabilityin their performance and presence inboth social and solitary play. So the“Training for unexpected” hypothesis was well supported rather thancommunication meaning of selfhandicapped behaviors. Comparisonwith data we have collected for othermonkey specie
