About this book

This mammoth text carries out a comprehensive reconstruction of the evolutionary history of living and fossil primates, primarily from an anatomical angle but also using evidence from chromosomal and comparative molecular studies. The author identifies key characteristics in the earliest primates and investigates the fate of these features during the subsequent evolution of the group.
