Which came first: Primates' ability to see colorful food or see colorful sex?
The adaptive significance of the unique ability in many primates to distinguish red hues from green ones (i.e., trichromatic color vision) has always enticed debate among evolutionary biologists. View News Article (2007-06-27)

Behavioral studies show UV contributes to marsupial color vision
Work reported this week provides new evidence that marsupials, like primates, have functional color vision based on three different types of color photoreceptor cones-but unlike primates, a component of marsupial color vision includes sensitivity to ultraviolet wavelengths. View News Article (2006-03-21)

Primate calls, like human speech, can help infants form categories

Bushmeat poses threat of simian retrovirus transmission to humans (pp 911, 932)
Epidemiological research from central Africa in this week's issue of THE LANCET highlights how a new form of retrovirus - simian foamy virus (SFV) - can be transferred from primates to humans as a result of hunting for bush meat. Although the effect of simian foamy viruses on human health is not yet known, authors of the research state that a reduction in hunting and consumption of bushmeat will...
