Monkeys are part of the taxonomic class of Primates and are divided into two large groups, the monkeys of the Old World (Catarrhines) and the monkeys of the New World (Platyrrhines).
There are over 250 species of monkeys in the world, varying in size, characteristics, geographic area, habitat, and similarity to humans.
According to modern classification, monkeys, scientific name Simiiformes, are an infraorder of the suborder of Haplorrhini, which together with the infraorder of Strepsirrhini (to which belong, for example, Lemurs, or monkeys of Madagascar) make up the order of Primates.
The infraorder of the monkeys is subdivided, in turn, into two large suborders, the Platyrrhines, and Catarrhines.
