About this book

29 papers which grew from a symposium 'Setting the Future Agenda for Neotropical Primates', Washington, February 1994. Contributions were expanded to provide a more comprehensive view of platyrrhine evolution and ecology, to emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of many of these studies, and to highlight the central role that New World monkeys play in advancing primatology.
