This is a guide to starting points and strategies for compiling data on a specific non-human primate species.
In any resource, to obtain all available information, you will want to use both Common Name(s) and Taxonomic Names including Family name and Genus and Species names.
To collect comprehensive information for a species profile you will need to use several types of information sources including: the library catalog, periodical databases, and authoritative WebSites.
If you have questions about a particular resource or need further assistance, please contact me for an appointment or contact a research librarian at the Fondren Library Center Reference Desk (214-768-2326) or through CHAT.
