About this book

A unique case study of primate evolution in action. This is an integrated synthesis of present knowledge of these fascinating African primates, which questions many current views on mammalian community structure and speciation, as well as on the
phylogeny of the African primates.
Contributions from 30 prominent specialists, and colour plates by a leading primate artist make this one of the most important primate texts of recent years.
`...will long stand as the key source on African primates and as a model for further multidisciplinary research on any continent.' David Chivers, Nature.
