..Despite these changing social and ecological factors, the abundance of red colobus has remained stable, possibly through a combination of increasing group size and behavioural flexibility. ..

. Do food availability, parasitism, and stress have synergistic effects on red colobus populations living in forest fragments?. Am J Phys Anthropol. 2006;131:525-34 pubmed
..A path analysis suggests that change in food availability has a strong direct effect on population size, but it also has an indirect effect via parasite infections...
Chapman C, Saj T, Snaith T. Temporal dynamics of nutrition, parasitism, and stress in colobus monkeys: implications for population regulation and conservation. Am J Phys Anthropol. 2007;134:240-50 pubmed
..The results suggest that parasitism and poor nutrition lead to increased stress which, because they are known to be associated with reduced fecundity and increased mortality, may lead to population declines...
