- Establishing meal patterns by lickometry in the marmoset monkey (Callithrix jacchus): translational applications from the bench to the field and the clinicCorinna N Ross
Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging, Department of Cellular and Structural Biology, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, TX 78245, USA
Am J Primatol 74:901-14. 2012..We define variables of interest that relate to both previous rodent literature and human clinical measures. Finally, we relate our findings to potential translational value for both primate field research and biomedical applications...
- Female marmosets' behavioral and hormonal responses to unfamiliar intrudersCorinna N Ross
Department of Cellular and Structural Biology, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, USA
Am J Primatol 73:1072-81. 2011..Female primates do exhibit situation-dependent changes in gonadal steroids in association with aggression that may serve to prime them for future aggressive interactions...
- Demographic review of a captive colony of callitrichids (Callithrix kuhlii)Corinna N Ross
School of Biological Sciences, University of Nebraska at Lincoln, Lincoln, NE, USA
Am J Primatol 69:234-40. 2007..Here we report data on lifespan, sex ratio, litter size, and interbirth interval (IBI) for that captive breeding colony...
- Germ-line chimerism and paternal care in marmosets (Callithrix kuhlii)C N Ross
School of Biological Sciences, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE 68588, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:6278-82. 2007..Therefore, we propose that the presence of placental chorionic fusion and the exchange of cell lines between embryos may represent a unique adaptation affecting the evolution of cooperative care in this group of primates...
- The marmoset as a model of aging and age-related diseasesSuzette D Tardif

- Integration of proximate and evolutionary explanation of reproductive strategy: the case of callitrichid primates and implications for human biologySuzette D Tardif
Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, San Antonio, Texas 78245, USA
Am J Hum Biol 21:731-8. 2009..Finally, the role of comparative data in the study of proximate and evolutionary explanations of "unique" human reproductive strategies is discussed...
- Polymorphic microsatellite loci for the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) designed using a cost- and time-efficient methodM Raveendran
Department of Genetics, Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research, San Antonio, Texas 78227, USA
Am J Primatol 70:906-10. 2008..Of 20 loci initially evaluated, 14 were polymorphic and amplified reliably (70% success rate). The number of alleles ranged from 3 to 9 with heterozygosity varying from 0.48 to 0.83...
- Intensity of aggressive interactions modulates testosterone in male marmosetsCorinna N Ross

- Opportunistic mothers: female marmosets (Callithrix kuhlii) reduce their investment in offspring when they have to, and when they canJeffrey E Fite
Department of Psychology, University of Nebraska at Omaha, NE 68182 0274, USA
J Hum Evol 49:122-42. 2005..These studies also provide support for the notion that mothers are "flexible opportunists" when it comes to providing care to their young...
- Elevated urinary testosterone excretion and decreased maternal caregiving effort in marmosets when conception occurs during the period of infant dependenceJeffrey E Fite
Department of Psychology, University of Nebraska at Omaha, Omaha, NE 68182 0274, USA
Horm Behav 47:39-48. 2005..Our results suggest that variation in T secretion may regulate transitions in female reproductive behavior, and that the regulation of male and female parental behavior may be mediated by homologous neuroendocrine mechanisms...
