AQUINO, Rolando; IQUE, Carlos  and  GALVEZ, Hugo. Reconocimiento preliminar de la densidad y estructura poblacional de Saguinus tripartitus Milne-Eduards en la Amazonía peruana. Rev. peru biol. [online]. 2005, vol.12, n.3, pp.435-440. ISSN 1727-9933.

Censuses by transects were carried out in January of the 2005 in the Aushiri river basin to determine the population density and population structure of the «golden-mantle tamarin» (Saguinus tripartitus Milne-Eduards). We recorded 17 groups and population density was calculated in 13,5 individuals/km2. The size of the groups varied from four to eight individuals, with an average size of 5,3 individuals per group. The basic composition of a group was that of a reproductive pair with progeny of two to six individuals. The adults represented 75% of the total population.

Keywords : Golden tamarin; census; population density; group size; population structure.
