Book description

Although the behaviour and ecology of primates have been more thoroughly studied than that of any other group of mammals, there have been very few attempts to compare the communities of living primates found in different parts of the world. In Primate Communities, an international group of experts compares the composition, behaviour and ecology of primate communities in Africa, Asia, Madagascar and South America. They examine the factors underlying the similarities and differences between these communities, including their phylogenetic history, climate, rainfall, soil type, forest composition, competition with other vertebrates and human activities. As it brings together information about primate communities from around the world for the very first time, it will quickly become an important source book for researchers in anthropology, ecology and conservation, and a readable and informative text for undergraduate and graduate students studying primate ecology, primate conservation or primate behaviour.

Reviews

‘This timely and exciting volume provides an enormous amount of information on primates and the habitats in which they are found around the world. The collection is ideal for advanced undergraduate courses and graduate courses in primate conservation, ecology and/or behaviour. I have no doubt that it will shape the scope and scale(s) at which students and scholars of primate biology will be addressing their research questions for years to come.’
