Short summary
Forest-living primates are particularly vulnerable to the effects of forest fragmentation. The extent to which they can use the agricultural matrix between fragments can be critical for their long-term survival. This paper provides the first record of the use of a rubber plantation by golden-headed lion tamarins, endangered primates inhabiting the Atlantic Forest of south Bahia, Brazil. The results provide opportunities for reconciling economic rubber production with primate conservation.
