About this book

This major work is an extensively illustrated field guide covering 234 species of primate, including all prosimians, monkeys and apes. Each species is illustrated with colour photographs, plus basic information and a range map. Following the taxonomy of Colin Groves, it includes many new species which have been described during the last decade. The book also has a strong conservation message, and provides information on each species' conservation status and threats. Includes a foreword by Jane Goodall, and an introduction by Russell Mittermeier.
'...a superb book, attractive, insightful and highly useful. It will surely remain a basic reference source for many years.' George Schaller
