From September 13 to October 20, I spent 37 days in the Zhouzhi National Nature Reserve. 7 researchers, Dr. Murai, Dr. Rizaldi, Dr. Yan, Dr. Zhao, and other three graduate students from the Chinese Northwest University, Dr. Wang, Dr. Zhang Dr. Yang, collaborated with me in this study. They helped me to identify individuals and investigate the group composition. Our field assistants, Mr. Li, Mr. Wang QC, Mr. Wang QZ, Mr. Zhou and Mr. Chen helped me tracking the monkey group in Mountains.
From October 21 to 29, I stayed in the Chinese Northwest University, and discussed my observations with Prof. Li and his students. They gave me very impressive suggestions. Prof. Li and I planned also planned further collaborations on studying this species in the following year.
