dc.description.abstract The Department of Mammalogy of the American Museum of Natural History has one of the largest and best documented collections of preserved specimens representing the living primate species of Madagascar (families Lemuridae, Indriidae, Daubentoniidae, Megaladapidae, and Cheirogaleidae). For each specimen, the following information is given: taxon, catalogue number, date collected or catalogued (accessioned), sex (where known), age, nature of specimen, locality, and collector or source. Field numbers of specimens are given where collections have been divided between institutions, to allow the correlation of specimens between museums. Synonyms, range, and pelage characters are given for each species or subspecies, with discussion of taxonomy and/or external characters where appropriate. Approximately 800 specimens are catalogued. The collection of Lemuriformes is now available for study in the Department of Mammalogy at the museum. It is no longer available for loan"--P. [1]. en_US
