For those outside of the primatological community, it may seem surprising that this is the first volume about primatology in Argentina in almost 40 years. In Argentina we found 5 species of extant primates that inhabit different types of forests in the northern part of the country, especially in the northeastern region differing conservation status. Alouatta caraya (black and gold howler monkeys), 28 Alouatta guariba clamitans (brown howler monkeys), Aotus azarai (owl monkeys), Sapajus nigritus taxonomically synonymous with Cebus nigritus ? (black horned capuchins), and Sapajus cay taxonomically synonymous with Cebus paraguayanus and Sapajus paraguayanus ? (brown-capped 31 capuchins). This is the introduction of this volumen on primatology in Argentina.
