As Science Advances explains, “Primates are prey, predator and mutualist species in food webs and thereby influence ecosystem structure, function, and resilience. Their evolution, feeding ecology, and geographic distribution are closely linked to the diversification of angiosperms, a principal source of food (pollen, nectar, fruits, and seeds) for many animals and humans. Many primates have been identified or suspected as important pollinators due to their opportunistic nondestructive feeding on flowers and nectar.”
