They called them "the Trimates" or "Leakey's Angels," but however we characterize them, Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birute Galdikas changed the face of primatology. Each of them benefited from their mentor Louis Leakey's belief that women had superior observational than men. Their personalities and scientific breakthroughs are the subject of this graphic novel by comics science writer Jim Ottaviani (Feynman; Fallout) and self-professed "primate artist" Maris Wicks. An accessible introduction to an exciting scientific field that is mostly unknown even to general science readers. Editor's recommendation.
