Overview

Primates in Perspective is the first edited volume to offer a comprehensive overview of primatology since 1987. Forty-four original essays—by fifty-nine leading researchers in the field today—provide wide-ranging and contemporary coverage of all of the major areas of primatology.
Arranged in six sections, the text begins with an introduction to primatology and a review of the natural history of the major taxonomic groups within the order Primates. It goes on to cover methodologies and research design for both field and captive settings; primate reproduction; primate ecology and conservation and their roles in the daily lives of primates; and such aspects of social behavior and intelligence as communication, learning, and cognition. The volume ends with a concluding chapter by the editors that discusses the future of primatological research.
Ideal for introductory primatology courses, Primates in Perspective can also be used in upper-division behavior and conservation courses. Additionally, it is an invaluable reference tool for primate researchers.
