Gorillas are one of our closest living relatives, are the largest living primate, and teeter on the brink of extinction. Gorilla Biology offers the first comparative perspective on gorilla populations throughout their natural range, and covering all known subspecies. Discusing phylogeny, evolution, functional morphology, behavioural ecology and conservation biology, this multidisciplinary work will be essential reading for primatologists, anthropologists, animal behaviourists and evolutionary biologists.
