    • A escolha do alimento por bugios-ruivo (Alouatta clamitans, Primates, Cabrera, 1940) e muriquis-do-sul (Brachyteles arachnoides, Primates, e Geoffroy, 1806): composição da dieta e resistência à fratura de itens alimentares 

      Andrade, Enrico Sala de [UNIFESP] (Universidade Federal de São Paulo, 2014-04-25)
      Food plants have chemical and physical defence mechanisms to avoid herbivory whereas primary consumers have adaptations to cross this barrier so as to reach their specific nutritional requirements. Southern Muriquis ...

    • Membrane-plate transition in leaves as an influence on dietary selectivity and tooth form 

      Talebi, Mauricio G. [UNIFESP]; Sala, Enrico A. [UNIFESP]; Carvalho, Barbara [UNIFESP]; Villani, Giovanna M. [UNIFESP]; Lucas, Peter W.; van Casteren, Adam (Academic Press Ltd- Elsevier Science Ltd, 2016)
      Primates need accurate sensory signals about food quality to forage efficiently. Current evidence suggests that they target leaf foods based on color at long-range, reinforcing this with post-ingestive sensations relating ...

    • Primate dietary ecology in the context of food mechanical properties 

      Coiner-Collier, Susan; Scott, Robert S.; Chalk-Wilayto, Janine; Cheyne, Susan M.; Constantino, Paul; Dominy, Nathaniel J.; Elgart, Alison A.; Glowacka, Halszka; Loyola, Laura C.; Ossi-Lupo, Kerry; Raguet-Schofield, Melissa; Talebi, Mauricio G.

(Academic Press Ltd- Elsevier Science Ltd, 2016)
      Substantial variation exists in the mechanical properties of foods consumed by primate species. This variation is known to influence food selection and ingestion among non-human primates, yet no large-scale comparative ...
