Abstract : Project AMRO 0719, which effectively began in December 1972 is concerned with the populations of monkeys in the Peruvian Amazon, with its prime motivation being the ultimate management and protection of these populations to assure their conservation and supply for biomedical research. The objectives include the obtainment of population data on as many species as possible, evaluation of the factors which affect the populations, including human activities and the basic ecological needs and behavior of the species, training of Peruvians nationals, and the obtainment of ecological and behavioral data on any useful forest animals.
