Some primates may also serve as classic umbrella species, meaning that the protection of sufficient habitat to secure long-term viability of the primate taxon also ensures persistence of other threatened species (Caro 2003, 2010). g. orang-utans: Marshall et al. (2009)). Finally, primates have been argued to be valuable indicator species (Hill 2002), because their species richness serves as a surrogate for diversity in other taxa or because the health of their populations reflects the general health of an ecosystem.
