Sumatran orangutan; useful in studies of hominoid chromosome evolution

Lineage: Eukaryota[15557]; Metazoa[7782]; Chordata[3579]; Craniata[3544]; Vertebrata[3544]; Euteleostomi[3500]; Mammalia[873]; Eutheria[699]; Euarchontoglires[338]; Primates[190]; Haplorrhini[138]; Catarrhini[64]; Hominidae[7]; Pongo[2]; Pongo abelii[1]
The two former subspecies of orangutan, Bornean Pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus and Sumatran P. pygmaeus abelii, have recently been promoted to distinct Sumatran (P. abelii) and Bornean (P. pygmaeus) orangutan species. Orangutans are critically endangered primates whose populations have decreased nearly ninety percent in the past More...
