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 behaviour and intelligence as communication, learning, and cognition. The volume ends with an editorial and discusses the future of primatological research.
