The Red Colobus Monkeys

Thomas T. Struhsaker

Oxford University Press

An understanding of ecology is fundamental to the development of conservation management plans and theories that relate behaviour and social organization to the environment. This chapter deals with the basics of red colobus ecology, including diet, activity budgets, home range, daily travel distance (DTD), causes of mortality (disease, falls, and predation), and interspecific relationships other than with predators.

Keywords:   red colobus monkeys, ecology, diet, activity budgets, home range, daily travel distance, mortality
