    Title: Some other Books of Interest. (Book Reviews: The Cayo Santiago Macaques; Psychophysiology) Book Authors: Rawlins, Richard G.; Porges, Stephen W. Review Author. Macaque, any of more than 20 species of gregarious Old World monkeys, all of which are Asian except for the Barbary macaque of North Africa. Macaques are robust primates whose arms and legs are of about the same length. Explore some of the different species of macaques, from the smallest species (the crab-eating macaque) to the largest (the Tibetan macaque).

      We are working directly with Angie Ruiz-Lambides, Associate Director of the Cayo Santiago Field Station, and Dr. Melween Martínez, Director of the Caribbean Primate Research Center, to identify needs for the macaques on Cayo Santiago and to receive recommendations on how these funds can best be directed.   Sexual selection acts to increase the success of males possessing advantageous traits in competition over females. In primates, interspecific variability in social and mating systems creates highly variable selective pressures on males, changing the relative strength of both intra- and intersexual selection, and the relative degree of direct vs. indirect male–male by: 9.
