About this book

Comprehensive work on these Brazilian monkeys by an international team of experts who led the way in conserving three of the four lion tamarin species in the world today. The first section covers the history and framework of research and conservation for the four species, stressing the importance of both group and individual efforts. The authors then examine the principal research fields that have contributed to the management of the species in captivity and the wild. Finally, there is a review of interventions to conserve wild populations and their habitats.
