This choice of 29 papers grew out of a symposium entitled "Setting the long run schedule for Neotropical Primates. " The symposium used to be held on the division of Zoo­ logical study, nationwide Zoological Park, Washington D. C. , on February 26-27, 1994, and used to be backed by way of the Wenner-Gren origin for Anthropological examine, Smith­ sonian establishment, and neighbors of the nationwide Zoo. We placed the symposium including targets: to honor Warren G. Kinzey for his contributions to the turning out to be box of platyrrhine stories and to supply researchers who paintings within the Neotropics with the oppor­ tunity to debate contemporary advancements, to spot parts of analysis that require extra research, and particularly to assist advisor the subsequent iteration of researchers. The symposium supplied the chance to acknowledge Warren as a mentor and col­ laborator to the contribution of the research of platyrrhines. Contributions to the publication have been improved so as to offer a extra complete view of platyrrhine evolution and ecology, to stress the interdisciplinary nature of a lot of those experiences, and to excessive­ gentle the primary position that New international monkeys play in advancing primatology. If this vol­ ume have been to require significant revisions after only one extra decade of analysis, that will be a becoming testomony to Warren's enthusiasm and his force to repeatedly replace the sphere with new principles and techniques. Tributes to Warren and an inventory of his guides were released in different places (Norconk, 1994, 1996; Rosenberger 1994, 1995).
