We positioned the symposium including targets: to honor Warren G. Kinzey for his contributions to the starting to be box of platyrrhine stories and to supply researchers who paintings within the Neotropics with the oppor­ tunity to debate contemporary advancements, to spot parts of analysis that require extra learn, and particularly to assist advisor the following iteration of researchers. The symposium supplied the chance to acknowledge Warren as a mentor and col­ laborator to the contribution of the research of platyrrhines. Contributions to the ebook have been improved so one can offer a extra entire view of platyrrhine evolution and ecology, to stress the interdisciplinary nature of a lot of those reports, and to excessive­ gentle the significant function that New global monkeys play in advancing primatology.

Tributes to Warren and a listing of his guides were released in different places (Norconk, 1994, 1996; Rosenberger 1994, 1995).
