Cayo Santiago, Caribbean Primate Research Center


Cayo Santiago is one of the world's most renowned field sites for short term and longitudinal non-human primate studies. Its unique research value consists of:a stable and minimally disrupted long-term population management policy which allows investigators to plan and conduct longitudinal studies, an extensive and detailed computerized demographic database on the colony that provides information on individuals dating back to 1957, and DNA fingerprinting which is applied to confirm maternal and paternal relatedness of individuals.
