About this book

Although this handbook is intended for private owners of primates, it is highly recommended by Lesley Nicoll, Primate Keeper of Edinburgh Zoo who suggests the handbook `...contains a variety of useful information on primates...I recommend that anybody involved in the care of primates reads certain parts of the book...I found many parts of the book useful and have extracted parts of it to keep in the keepers' room at Edinburgh. These include a list of toxic and non-toxic plants...and a very comprehensive list of primate diseases, illnesses and parasites with notes on diagnosis and treatment.'
