An international group of experts compares the composition, behaviour and ecology of primate communities in Africa, Asia, Madagascar and South America. They examine the factors underlying the similarities and differences between these communities, including their phylogenetic history, climate, rainfall, soil type, climate, rainfall, soil type, forest composition, competition with other vertebrates and human activities.
'This timely and exciting volume provides an enormous amount of information on primates and the habitats in which they are found around the world. The collection is ideal for advanced undergraduate courses and graduate courses in primate conservation, ecology and/or behaviour. I have no doubt that it will shape the scope and scale(s) at which students and scholars of primate biology will be addressing their research questions for years to come.' Joanna E. Lambert, Animal Behaviour
