Primate Factsheets: Rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) Conservation

Primate Factsheets: Rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) Conservation | Invasive Species | Scoop.it

The Indian population of rhesus macaques was massively impacted by the widespread export for use in biomedical research in the mid-20 th century. By the time their international export began to be regulated in 1977, the Indian population was reduced by 90% (Malik 1992). Countries that had demanded these monkeys for use in research, including the United States, established self-sustaining breeding colonies and curbed the demand for wild-born animals resulting in a rebound in the Indian population (Southwick & Siddiqi 2001). In China, rhesus macaques are widespread and thriving (Zhang 1998).

It is theorized that the crab’s introduction onto the U.S coastline resulted from crab larvae being released during ballast water discharges of transoceanic vessels originating in crab infested waters. Ships fill their ballast tanks with seawater to gain stability before heading into the open ocean. When the ship arrives at its destination port, it dumps millions of gallons of water filled with non-native aquatic organisms into the local ecosystem. Since Asian shore crab larvae suspend in water for approximately one month before developing into juveniles, they are highly transportable.
