Linda L. Taylor of the University of Miami declares, “I can't imagine teaching a course on primate behavior or ecology without this text. ...Strier's writing style is a huge asset to keeping current information comprehensible for the target audience.”
William C. McGrew of the University of Cambridge, UK states, “Overall, the synthesis and integration are outstanding…this is one of the best organized textbooks that I have ever seen, in any field…it is clear that Strier is actively involved in the forefront and not some armchair type!”
From the Back Cover
This book is an introduction to the field and its applications to primate conservation. Like no other book on the market, this comprehensive book integrates the basics of evolutionary and ecological approaches to the study of primate behavior with up-to-date coverage of how different primates actually behave.
Examples are drawn from the classic primate field studies and more recent studies on previously neglected species illustrating the vast behavioral variation that we now know exists and the gaps in our knowledge that future studies will fill. Primate Behavioral Ecology fills a tremendous need for a book that integrates contemporary behavioral ecology, evolutionary theory, and conservation concerns as they pertain to primates.
For readers interested in the study of primate behavior and conservation issues. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
