About this book

Biogeography is a vital component in many aspects of Primatology, including studies of evolution, speciation systematics, population genetics, and community ecology. Despite its integral position in studies of primate evolution and ecology and the broad representation of research on this subject in journals, field guides, and edited volumes on different regions of the world, Primate Biogeography is a subject that is rarely addressed as a discipline in its own right.

This comprehensive source introduces the reader to Primate Biogeography as a discipline, highlights the many factors that may influence the distribution of primates, and reveals the wide range of approaches that are available to understanding the distribution of this order.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "The biology of the tropics is severely understudied by comparison to that of temperate regions. ! Primatology has a huge amount of amazingly detailed data on its focal taxon. Our field therefore provides a large, clear window into tropical biology. This book should be read by all biogeographers, not just primate biogeographers. ! All chapters are clearly written, with quantitative analysis of high quality, stimulating discussion, an abundance of raw data that will provide much fuel for future research, and excellent summaries." (A. H. Harcourt, International Journal of Primatology, Vol. 28, 2007) "This book is a collection of studies that fall into one of two general categories: ecological biogeography, the study of a taxon's distribution patterns based on its interactions with the physical and biotic environment, or historical biogeography, the investigation of events that led to the origin and dispersal of a taxon. ! Primate Biogeography is designed as a broad survey of the field ! is a great success. This book will undoubtedly serve as a valuable introduction to the field for several years to come." (Anthony J. Tosi, Journal of Mammalian Evolution, Vol. 14, 2007)
