Fourteen pair of mother-infant pigtail monkeys were raised from birth to 15 weeks of age in two different controlled laboratory environments, one relatively rich and the other relatively devoid of stimuli. Quantitative observational data treated by trend analysis and by sequence analysis focused on nursing behavior. The closest positions of mother and infant relative to each other led to patterns of continued closeness as did patterns of nursing combined with maternal cradling. When nursing took place in a near position outside the mother's lap the infant was likely to leave her.
