About this book

More than 10 years in the making, Mammals of Africa contains the very latest information and detailed discussion of the morphology, distribution, biology and evolution (including reference to fossil and molecular data) of every currently recognized species of African land mammal.

Volume II: Primates is devoted to the order Primates, and includes the great apes, Old World monkeys, lorisids and galagos. Using the taxonomy adopted for Mammals of Africa, the four families represented comprise 25 genera and 93 species. A new species of monkey described in 2011 brings the total to 94, and this is briefly mentioned. Colour illustrations are by Jonathan Kingdon.
