Primate Factsheets

The Wisconsin National Primate Research Center has created this series of factsheets as a starting point to find information about the various primate species. Each PIN Factsheet covers one or more species, including morphology, ecology, behavior, and conservation with range maps, images, and an extensive glossary of terms to illustrate the text. New factsheets will be developed and added to this site on a regular basis.
