About this book

Special Topic Issue: Folia Primatologica 2012, Vol. 83, No. 3-6

Primates and felids interact as prey and predators within communities, but they also share a number of parallel features – both taxa have complex societies, find themselves in conflict with people and face escalating conservation challenges.

Based on a Primate Society of Great Britain (PSGB) and Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) special meeting on primates and felids, this Folia Primatologica special issue provides a rich selection of current primate and predator research across all primate habitats and regions of the world. It covers topics as diverse as global similarities and differences in primate and felid distributions and conservation measures, human conflict with primates and felids, the evolutionary history and palaeo-ecology of predation on primates, predation by felids on nocturnal primates, primate antipredator behaviour, spatial interactions between patas monkeys and predators, ape predation in Africa and predation effects on group living in baboons.

Primate-Predator Interactions provides a compendious reference point for primatologists and predator biologists alike, and will capture the interest of all biologists with an interest in community ecology and predator-prey systems.
