About this book

Primate Behavior is an introductory workbook that serves as a detailed guide for conducting scientific behavioural studies. A thoughtful overview of the concepts, skills, and techniques researchers use is followed by 21 classroom-tested exercises. Varied examples encourage readers to apply their newfound knowledge to determine and implement appropriate strategies. Online materials include relevant forms for recording and presenting research data as well as training video samples.

Thoroughly updated, the third edition introduces the latest technology for data collection, software options when storing, compiling, and analyzing data, and ethical responsibilities in the field. New authors Julie Teichroeb and Lisa Corewyn build on James Paterson's foundational work to rigorously, responsibly, and enthusiastically prepare students for today's landscape with an emphasis on accuracy, precision, and effective communication of results.
