Systematists are more than ever faced with the task of interpreting the biological validity of species from data representing many different biological components. How data, such as molecular, biochemical, chromosomal, behavioral, and morphological, may be interpreted objectively within a consistent paradigm is yet without consensus. Characters have often presided over their interpretation, and it is not unknown for technique to have usurped method. The aim of this study is to assess within a paradigm the contributions of a variety of data toward understanding the species taxonomy of the genus Saimiri. This is done under the explicit premises entailed in Mayr’s biological species concept (BSC; see Mayr, 1942, 1963, 1982), and as expanded by Bock (1986; see also Szalay, this volume). A few remarks are made concerning Paterson’s (1980, 1985) species recognition concept with regard to Saimiri taxonomy.
