Review of revision 1090387 [Passed][edit]

Serious errors[edit]

  • Azara's owl monkeys do not live in Spain, they live in South America. I think the sources say Argentina, though I'll have to recheck that. (As a matter of curiosity, the WP article says they're named after Félix de Azara.)
  • The new result from this research is demonstration of masking (of a certain sort), which this article, especially the lede, seems to suggest was previously known.
  • Azara's owl monkeys were chosen because they are the only anthropoid primate exhibiting certain variations in behavioral patterns, while the early paragraphs of this article seem to say that that is the new result from this research.

Pursuant to the above, I have submitted for peer-review significant changes to the first two paragraphs of the article. Although I didn't notice anything later in the article that needed changing, I am not at my sharpest as it is the dead of night where I am and I am primarily diurnal. --Pi zero (talk) 07:36, 8 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Unlike the sources, the Wikinews article doesn't mention the three lunar eclipses. Why? (The abstract suggests to me that the eclipses are the strongest evidence for the hypothesis, but I may be wrong.) --InfantGorilla (talk) 08:01, 8 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've submitted an addition of this. --Pi zero (talk) 16:08, 8 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Looks good, but I'll leave it to an independent reviewer to sight it. --InfantGorilla (talk) 16:16, 8 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'll take a look. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 16:18, 8 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
