PIN Taxonomy Search

No "official primate taxonomy" exists. This search form provides access to the primate taxonomy tables compiled and utilized by Primate Info Net for organization and indexing of information on the site. In nearly all cases, it follows Groves, "Order Primates," in Mammal Species of the World, 2005. Common names have been pulled from a number of sources, including IUCN Red List.
