Global Warming Cycles Threaten Endangered Primate Species
Two Penn State University researchers have carried out one of the first-ever analyses of the effects of global warming on endangered primates.... The scientists focused on the large-bodied monkeys of South America, which are highly threatened. Choosing one species from each of the four genera of Atelines, Wiederholt and Post examined abundance trends and dynamics... The team hypothesized that the trees' response to the warming events might provide a crucial link between changes in climate and monkey abundance....The results of the team's analyses were spectacular. All four monkey species showed drops in abundance relating to large-scale climate fluctuations.

Just so it doesn't endanger any threatened species.
