Leaf consumption by monkeys in western and eastern Africa: a comparison

Abstract : Monkeys of West African rain forests appear to be less folivorous and more frugivorous than equivalent species in East Africa. They eat significant amounts of leaves mainly when fruit is scarce. Western forests are richer in plant species than eastern ones. It is suggested that low folivory by West African monkeys could result from the width of the frugivorous niche.
