About this book

Language: Portuguese

This is a field guide to Brazilian’s primates – and the only in Portuguese that describes the 116 existing species in Brazil, including the newly described Callicebus miltoni. All of the species are presented with colourful plates, geographic distribution, physical characteristics (such as weight, size), diet, reproduction data, danger of extinction etc. An up-to-date bibliography is also included. The illustrations are of high quality and the book, written in accessible language, is aimed at lay people, students, and professionals interested in wildlife conservation. This is especially applicable to Brazil's primates which are exposed to many threats, amongst others from the destruction of Brazil's rainforests and increased habitat fragmentation.

Summary in Portuguese:
Este é o único livro em português, no qual estão descritas as 116 espécies de primatas brasileiros, incluindo a recém-descrita Callicebus miltoni. Aqui está apresentada a descrição da distribuição geográfica, da reprodução, dos hábitos alimentares, dos dados ecológicos, das curiosidades e do grau de ameaça de cada uma destas espécies, com bibliografia atualizada. É importante salientar que todas as espécies estão apresentadas com ilustrações em seu mais alto nível de definição, nunca antes mostradas em um livro de primatas. Trata-se de uma obra escrita com profundidade e linguagem simples, na esperança de ajudar leigos, estudantes e profissionais interessados na conservação da vida dos mamíferos silvestres, já que são grandes os riscos a que esses animais estão expostos, considerando, entre outros tipos de ameaça, os avanços na fragmentação e destruição das florestas brasileiras.
