About this book

Provides an insight into the behavioural development of juvenile primates, from weaning to adulthood, and how their conduct and social relationships are influenced by behavioural ecology.

An excellent book that can be recommended to all biologists and anthropologists who are interested in the study of animal and human behavior from an ecological and evolutionary perspective. - Dario Maestripieri, Trends in Ecology and Evolution
