Long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis) have a large geographical distribution and generally overlap with human societies throughout southeast Asia, frequently using the perimeters of secondary woodland and inhabiting various anthropogenic environments, together with temple grounds, towns and farmlands. but regardless of their obvious ubiquity around the zone, there are awesome gaps in our figuring out of long-tailed macaque inhabitants ecology. This well timed quantity, a key source for primatologists, anthropologists and conservationists, underlines the pressing want for finished inhabitants stories on universal macaques. delivering the 1st unique examine learn in this underexplored species, it unveils what's at the moment identified in regards to the inhabitants of M. fascicularis, explores the contexts and results of human-macaque sympatry and discusses the leading edge courses being initiated to solve human-macaque clash throughout Asia. unfold in the course of the ebook are boxed case reports that complement the chapters and provides a beneficial perception into particular box reports on wild M. fascicularis populations.

Although not documented clearly, the population explosion likely occurred because of a mixture of human-induced habitat destruction and the availability of abundant food resources from the farms of European settlers. Gumert suffering severe damage to their plantations and food stocks by macaque raiding (Sussman and Tattersall, 1981). , Chapter 8). , 2000). Several authors have claimed macaques have played a predominant role in the decline and extinction of several bird populations on the island (Cheke, 1987; Safford, 1997), including the dodo bird (Quammen, 1996), despite Mauritius having a plethora of other invasive species (Lorence and Sussman, 1986).
Intra-subspecific variation A high level of morphological and genetic variation occurs within the core subspecies, M. f. fascicularis. This high level of variation is greater than that observed within any other macaque species (Fooden, 1995, 2006), which raises questions about the accuracy and usefulness of current subspecies categorizations. Â€f. fascicularis. , 2005). Island populations of M. f. , 2007). Mangrove-dwelling macaques in Vietnam were found to have different body size and tail-length measurements than monkeys in Indonesia and are reported to have a characteristic “mohawk-like” hair crest pattern (Son, 2003).
Although other tool-use behavior has been seen idiosyncratically in M. f. , 2007; Wheatley, 1988), none of these cases are reported to be customary traditions as in M. f. , 2009). Some of the distinctions between subspecies concluded from morphological studies have been supported by a small amount of genetic work. , 1996). There also seems to be a distinct difference in blood proteins between the macaques of the Philippines and others regions, indicating a genetic distinction between M. f. philippinensis and M.
