Over 350 years ago, the ecology of St Kitts, an island in the West Indies, was dramatically altered when Europeans arrived. The English and later French introduced sugar cane production, brought in a large African slave workforce, and (unintentionally) introduced a highly intelligent and adaptable invasive animal species, the green monkey (Chlorocebus sabaeus). Ever since green monkeys arrived in St Kitts, they have thrived on the island, in part by foraging on farmers’ crops. In this chapter, we utilize GIS and GPS techniques to generate a predictive model of this crop-foraging behavior. Additionally, we use ethnographic techniques to understand the nuanced ways in which historic land use changes in St Kitts have altered green monkey movements, and, in turn, Kittitians’ cultural conceptualization of monkeys. Our work shows the benefits of utilizing an ethnoprimatological framework and combining quantitative and qualitative data collection techniques in assessing human–nonhuman primate (NHP) conflict situations, which are inherently highly spatial in nature.
Ethnoprimatology, the combining of primatological and anthropological practice and the viewing of humans and other primates as living in integrated and shared ecological and social spaces, has become an increasingly popular approach to primate studies in the twenty-first century. Offering an insight into the investigation and documentation of human-nonhuman primate relations in the Anthropocene, this book guides the reader through the preparation, design, implementation, and analysis of an ethnoprimatological research project, offering practical examples of the vast array of methods and techniques at chapter level. With contributions from the world's leading experts in the field, Ethnoprimatology critically analyses current primate conservation efforts, outlines their major research questions, theoretical bases and methods, and tackles the challenges and complexities involved in mixed-methods research. Documenting the spectrum of current research in the field, it is an ideal volume for students and researchers in ethnoprimatology, primatology, anthropology, and conservation biology.
