Old World monkeys (Cercopithecoidea) are the most successful and diverse group of living nonhuman primates in terms of the number of species, behavioural repertoires and ecology. They have much to teach us about the processes of evolution and the principles of ecology, and are among our closest living relatives. This volume presents a broad, technical account of cercopithecoid biology including molecular, behavioral and morphological approaches to phylogeny, population structure, allometry, fossil history, functional morphology, ecology, cognitive capabilities, social behaviour and conservation. Contributors include Clifford Jolly, Lynn Fairbanks, Patricia Whitten, Thomas Struhsaker and Carey Yeager.
'Old World Monkeys is a landmark volume ... an invaluable resource for all primatologists.' J. K. McKee, Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society
