Seasonality in Primates: Studies of Living and Extinct Human and Non-Human Primates - Diane K. Brockman, Carel van SchaikThe emergence of the genus Homo is widely linked to the colonization of "new" highly seasonal savannah habitats. However, until now, our understanding of the possible impact of seasonality on this shift has been limited because we have little general knowledge of how seasonality affects the lives of primates.
