Product Description


"This edition is geared more explicitly toward use as a teaching text, with a brief 'how to use this book' section for students and teachers, a few 'reading questions' at the beginning of each chapter, and a glossary in the back. More importantly, this edition includes completely new chapters on ecological methods, kinship, and juvenility. There are also total rewrites of several chapters, including those on tool use and behavioral data collection methods, and minor tweaks to other chapters, including welcome changes in terminology in the chapter on social systems and updates to the chapters in the second section based on newly published field studies. I found all of these changes to be improvements and think they make it a stronger volume than the first edition." -- The Quarterly Review of Biology

must have for primatology 10 Sept. 2011
By Ape_Man - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is the most comprehensive general look at what is what in primate research. The chapters are authored by experts in their particular subject, are usually well written and concise, and contain references to all of the most relevant literature. This book does not have all of the information on every primate species as was commented by a previous reviewer, but that isn't the intention of this book. For that information, a book like the pictorial guide to living primates would be more useful. This book, as a general guide is comprehensive and a must have for primatology students.

...for studying primates in general. Well organized, easy to read. I bought it for a class in primatology, and I will be keeping it for future reference.
useful book for primatology students 9 Oct. 2010

Format: Paperback
great book if you are interested in learning all about primates. Students or professionals can still learn a lot by reading some of the chapters.

Very thorough 2 Nov. 2010
By Rebeca Landin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The condition of the book was excellent. It came a little later than was originally estimated but not much later (about 1 day). There is a TON of information in this book. Almost anything you need to know about a certain primate group can be found in this book. However, if you're looking for something about a specific species, the information may be too general. Otherwise, very informative text with good organization.
