Editorial Reviews

Review

"An excellent book that can be recommended to all biologists and anthropologists who are interested in the study of animal and human behavior from an ecological and evolutionary perspective." - Dario Maestripieri, Trends in Ecology and Evolution

From the Inside Flap

The first and still the only book focused exclusively on juvenile primates, this collection presents original research covering all the major divisions of primates, from prosimians to humans. Contributors explore the evolutionary history of the juvenile stage in primates; differences in behavior between juvenile males and females; how juvenile behaviors act both to prepare juveniles for adulthood and to help them survive the juvenile stage; how juveniles learn about and participate in social conflict and dominance relationships; and the similarities and differences between development of juvenile human and nonhuman primates. This edition includes a substantial new foreword and bibliography prepared by the editors.

Given that the juvenile period of life is so long in primates, it is remarkable that this phase of life is so under researched. This volume begins to answer the questions, "What are they doing during the juvenile period?" and "Why is the juvenile period so long?"

Every article in this book was well written, informative and contributed to the total package. The total package also includes most of the important references in this field of study.

It is as the publisher says, "The first and still the only book focused exclusively on juvenile primates..."
