Abstract

International Journal of Primatology, Vol. 18, No. 5, 1997 Elisabetta Visalberghi1,3 and William C. McGrew2 The idea of providing an ad hoc occasion for primatologists doing re- search on Cebus to meet those working on Pan came to mind several years ago. In 1990, during a Wenner-Gren Foundation Conference in Portugal (Gibson and Ingold, 1993), we realized that despite the phylogenetic dis- tance between these two genera, comparisons between them led to some of the most interesting and challenging discussions. Many of the other par- ticipants also enthusiastically joined these Cebus-Pan debates. Our idea was further reinforced by the fact that others, including Erasmus Darwin, George Romanes, Heinrich Kluver, and Harry Harlow (Visalberghi, 1993), had been fascinated by the parallels between these small New World mon- keys and large African apes. At that time, the scientific literature on Cebus was more sparse than today and too many question marks filled our imaginary table of compari- son. The capuchin scene is now richer (Visalberghi, 1997), and this special can be learned by analyzing the similarities journal issue illustrates what and differences between the two genera.
