The order name Primates (literally: those of first rank) was introduced by Linnaeus in 1758 for a group that included man along with several non-human primates known at that time. The number of living primate species recognized in standard classifications has been steadily climbing, it is highly likely that additional species will be recognized, notably because of contributions from molecular studies and the discovery of further previously unrecognized cryptic species among the incompletely studied night-active (nocturnal) primates. The living primates fall quite clearly into six natural groups, based on a combination of geographical distribution and key characteristics:(1) lemurs (infraorder Lemuriformes)(2) lorises and bushbabies (infraorder Lorisiformes)(3) tarsiers (infraorder Tarsiiformes)(4) New World monkeys (infraorder Platyrrhini)(5) Old World monkeys (superfamily Cercopithecoidea)(6) apes and humans (superfamily Hominoidea)This app features descriptions and photographs of more than 400 species, complete with their taxonomic classification and various sorting and filtering functions as well as a an extensive glossary of terms related to primates. All data and the user interface are available in English and German language.An intuitive user interface with a variety of useful function makes this app a valuable source of information for everybody interesting in knowing more about primates.NOTE: This first version does not contain all photographs and descriptions and is offered for an introductory low price. In the course of the coming weeks and months, ALL descriptions and available photographs will be collected and provided for download into the app for everybody who has purchased the app. The download of updated data will be free forever and is initiated inside the app.
