About this book

The field of primatology has expanded substantially in the last twenty years, particularly with regard to studies of primates in human-altered landscapes. This text aims to review the recent literature on anthropogenic (of human origin) influences on non-human primates, bringing an overview of this important area of primatology together for students. Chapters are grouped into three sections, representing the many ways anthropogenic activities affect primate populations. The first section, 'Human Influences on Primate Habitat', covers ways in which wild primates are affected by human actions, including forest fragmentation, climate change, and the presence of dogs. Section two, 'Primates in Human-Dominated Landscapes', looks at situations where non-human primates and humans share space; this includes primates in urban environments, primate tourism, and primates in agroecosystems. The final section, 'Primates in Captivity', looks at primate behaviour and welfare in captive situations, including zoos, the primate pet trade, and in entertainment.

Customer Reviews


Dr Tracie McKinney is a biological anthropologist with a research interest in human-primate interactions. She has primarily worked with Central American monkeys but is broadly interested in ecotourism, crop foraging, and other situations where humans and non-human primates interact. She is a graduate of The Ohio State University, and currently works as a Senior Lecturer at the University of South Wales. Tracie's most recent work has focused on ethnoprimatology and its role in primate research, best practice guidelines for primate tourism, and building aerial bridges to help monkeys safely cross roads. Tracie is a member of the IUCN Primate Specialist Group's Section for Human-Primate Interactions (SHPI).

Dr Siân Waters is the founder and director of a community conservation project in Morocco focusing on the Endangered Barbary macaque, where she uses ethnographic data to identify social and cultural obstacles to the species' conservation. She is an honorary research fellow in the Department of Anthropology at Durham University, UK, and the Vice-chair of the IUCN Primate Specialist Group's Section for Human-Primate Interactions (SHPI). The SHPI focuses on understanding people's interactions with primates in agroecosystems, urban environments, human culture, and trade. Sian is also interested in the human dimensions of wildlife translocations and is a member of the IUCN SSC Conservation Translocations Specialist Group.

Dr Michelle A. Rodrigues is a biological anthropologist with research interests in the impact of sociality on stress biology, including the impact of human-primate interactions on primates across wild and captive contexts. She has worked primarily with Central American monkeys, as well as captive platyrrhines and apes. She received her PhD from The Ohio State University and is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Social and Cultural Sciences at Marquette University. Her recent work has focused on applying decolonial approaches to improving the practice of primatology. Michelle is a member of the IUCN Primate Specialist Group's Section for Human-Primate Interactions (SHPI).
