About this book

Illustrations by Linda E Curtis
Comprehensive but compact guide to the long evolutionary history of the world's prosimians, monkeys and apes, and to the much shorter history of humankind's interactions with them. It describes, compares, and contrasts the major primate groups with a specific anatomical focus: blood groups; the skull; teeth, diet and digestion; the brain and the senses; the skeleton and locomotion; and growth and development.
