About this book

Human and nonhuman primates have had a long and intimate evolutionary relationship. This relationship is fascinating, complex, and often antagonistic. The most frequent conflicts are between humans and terrestrial or semi-terrestrial primate species that fall into the commensal category. These species tend toward a nutritional reliance upon foods similar to those preferred by humans.

This volume explores the conflicts and between human and nonhuman primates and offers solutions to mitigate the growing problems.
