  Demonstration of genotype-phenotype correlation in polymorphic color vision of a non-callitrichine New World monkey, capuchin (Cebus apella).
■ 概要
  Color-vision polymorphism in New World monkeys offers researchers an excellent opportunity to study the association between vision and behavior. As a prerequisite for such studies, genetically determined color-vision types must be concordant with phenotypes determined directly by behavioral criteria (e.g., by a color discrimination test). Using genetic, electrophysiological, and behavioral approaches, we evaluated the color vision of brown capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella), a representative non-callitrichine modelanimal for physiology and behavior. The results demonstrate the mutual consistency between genotypes and phenotypes of color vision, and provide a solid genetic basis on which the ecology and evolution of color vision can be investigated.
