The principal aim of this book is to present a synthesis of current knowledge of the biology of the Barbary macaque, and in doing so to recognise the contribution the Barbary has made to our understanding of primate socio-biology. Importantly, the book also looks at the species from a comparative perspective within the macaque genus as a whole.
Unfortunately, the Barbary macaque faces an uncertain future. Officially classed as 'vunerable', the status of the species in the wild is progressively deteriorating, its distribution now limited to a few isolated populations in Morocco and Algeria. The second objective of the book therefore, is to review information relevant to the management and conservation of the species, looking at captive and wild populations.
