Record Type: concept
monkeys (animals) (Primates (order), Mammalia (class), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Common term referring to the New World monkeys and the Old World monkeys, two of the three groupings of simian primates, the third of which is the apes. There are over 250 known living species of monkey. Because of their similarity to monkeys, apes are often called "monkeys" in informal usage. Furthermore, some monkey species have the word "ape" in their common name, causing further confusion. Because monkeys are not a single coherent group, they do not all share any particular traits that are not also shared with the apes.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 指稱新世界猴與舊世界猴的常用名詞,包含三種靈長類猴的兩個群組,第三個則是人猿。世界上有超過兩百五十種已知猴種。因為人猿與猴非常相似,在非正式的用法中,牠們常被稱為「猴」。而有些猴種的名稱中亦包含了「猿」一字,更加造成混淆。因為猴並非單一同質的團體,因此並未具備任何人猿所沒有的特徵。
