Extant and Extinct Primates' Body Mass

Circle size is proportional to the body mass of extant and extinct primates, and the colors indicate genus. Some names are cut off, but the full binomial name and the body mass in kilograms can be seen by hovering over the text. Data come from: Felisa A. Smith, S. Kathleen Lyons, S. K. Morgan Ernest, Kate E. Jones, Dawn M. Kauffman, Tmar Dayan, Pablo A. Marquet, James H. Brown, and John P. Haskell. 2003. Body mass of late Quaternary mammals. Ecology 84:3403.
