Taxonomy[ edit ] The Barbary macaque was named by Carl Linnaeus in , along with numerous other species named in that same year. The scientific name is Macaca sylvanus. Studies concerning interspecific DNA variation within the genus Macaca show that the Barbary macaque is most related to the Asian macaques. The Barbary macaque has a mean body length of

Glossary Palearctic living in the northern part of the Old World. In otherwords, Europe and Asia and northern Africa. In birds, naked and helpless after hatching. Animals with bilateral symmetry have dorsal and ventral sides, as well as anterior and posterior ends.

Synapomorphy of the Bilateria. Ecotourism implies that there are existing programs that profit from the appreciation of natural areas or animals. Endothermy is a synapomorphy of the Mammalia, although it may have arisen in a now extinct synapsid ancestor; the fossil record does not distinguish these possibilities.

Convergent in birds. Iteroparous animals must, by definition, survive over multiple seasons or periodic condition changes. Savannas are grasslands with scattered individual trees that do not form a closed canopy. Extensive savannas are found in parts of subtropical and tropical Africa and South America, and in Australia.

See also Tropical savanna and grassland biome. Vegetation is made up mostly of grasses, the height and species diversity of which depend largely on the amount of moisture available. Fire and grazing are important in the long-term maintenance of grasslands. References Bowman, J.
