Abstract: Guard hairs of mammals are useful in identifying species. Morphological characteristics of the guard hairs were used to determine differences in the pelage of mona monkeys (Cercopithecus mona) in Omo-Shasha-Oluwa Forest Reserves in South western Nigeria. Using standard procedures, five strands of guard hair from each location were observed under a light microscope attached with a digital camera for the determination of histological structures. Qualitative and quantitative characteristics of the hair were exami… Show more

Qualitative and quantitative data on the hair morphology of mona monkey was reported by Olaleru et al (2020). Hair morphologies for putty-nosed monkey, red-capped mangabey, and white-throated monkey has not been reported.…”
