Описание: Focuses on South American monkeys as models to address and test critical issues in the study of nonhuman primates. This volume examines the nature and range of primate responses to changes in their ecological and social environments, and uses data on South American monkeys to address critical theoretical questions in the study of primate behavior.
Описание: This study explores the role of aggression in primate social systems and its implications for human behaviour.

Описание: 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 an editorial and discusses the future of primatological research. Ideal for introduction to primate courses, Primates in Perspective can also be used in primate behavior and primate conservation courses. It is also an invaluable reference tool for primate researchers. Features:
Includes authoritative works from fifty-nine leading researchers in primatology in all major areas of primate research
Presents the most detailed coverage of contemporary research available today on non-human primates
Provides extensive references--along with chapts on methodology and the future of primatology--that are invaluable to beginning researchers

Описание: Primates in Perspective is an edited volume that consists of 44 original essays, written by top researchers in the field, each providing a comprehensive overview of an area of primate research. Topics include: an introduction to the field of primatology, a review of the natural history of each major taxonomic group withing the Order Primates, methodologies and research design used in both field and captive settings, primate reproduction, primate ecology and conservation and their roles in the daily lives of primates, and aspects of social behavior and intelligence such as communication, learning, and cognition. Appropriate for undergraduate courses in primatology, this volume is not only a valuable teaching asset, but is also a vital reference tool for primate researchers. Note changes in price, trim size and in length.

Описание: In combination with predation and competition for resources, infectious disease is a key ecological factor that influences the evolution of animal mating and social systems. Although recent studies have begun to illuminate the central role that infectious disease plays in the lives of some mammals, surprisingly little is yet known or has been written about its influence on the complex mating and social systems of primates, including humans.

Описание: Reconstructing the paleobiology of fossil non-human primates, this book is intended as an exposition of non-human primate evolution that includes information about evolutionary theory and processes, paleobiology, paleoenvironment, how fossils are formed, how fossils illustrate evolutionary processes, the reconstruction of life from fossils, the formation of the primate fossil record, functional anatomy, and the genetic bases of anatomy. Throughout, the emphasis of the book is on the biology of fossil primates, not their taxonomic classification or systematics, or formal species descriptions. The author draws detailed pictures of the paleoenvironment of fossil primates, including contemporary animals and plants, and ancient primate communities, emphasizing our ability to reconstruct lifeways from fragmentary bones and teeth, using functional anatomy, stable isotopes from enamel and collagen, and high resolution CT-scans of the cranium. Fossil Primates will be essential reading for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in evolutionary anthropology, primatology and vertebrate paleobiology.

Описание: This is a prospectus to produce a multi-authored volume on Indonesian Primates. The basic goal of the volume is to compile the most up to date research on the behavior, ecology and conservation status of Indonesian primates. Indonesia possesses the second largest primate population in the world, with over 33 different primate species. Although Brazil possesses more primate species, Indonesia outranks it in terms of its diversity of primates, ranging from prosimians (slow lorises and tarsiers), to a multitude of Old World Monkey species (macaques, langurs, proboscis moneys) to lesser apes (siamangs, gibbons) and great apes (orangutans). The primates of Indonesia are distributed throughout the archipelago.
Описание: This book explores afresh the long-standing interest, and emphasis on, the `special' capacities of primates. Some of the recent discoveries of the higher cognitive abilities of other mammals and also birds challenge the concept that primates are special and even the view that the cognitive ability of apes is more advanced than that of nonprimate mammals and birds. It is therefore timely to ask whether primates are, in fact, special and to do so from a broad range of perspectives. Divided into five sections this book deals with topics about higher cognition and how it is manifested in different species, and also considers aspects of brain structure that might be associated with complex behavior.

Описание: Cooperative behavior has been one of the enigmas of evolutionary theory since the days of Charles Darwin. The contributions to this book examine the many facets of cooperative behavior in primates and humans as some of the worldвЂ™s leading experts review and summarize the state of the art of theoretical and empirical studies of cooperation. This book is thus the first to bridge the gap between parallel research in primatology and studies of humans. Comparative as this approach is, it highlights both common principles and aspects of human uniqueness with respect to cooperative behavior.
Описание: Describes how and why nursery rearing of primates can produce adaptable juveniles and adults for research, conservation, and display-educational purposes. This volume details the history of nursery rearing since the mid-19th century, the outcomes of varied nursery rearing methods, and more.
