About this book

The first edited volume to offer a comprehensive overview of this rare dietary niche in the primate order. Leading researchers in the field of primatology synthesize our current knowledge of the behavioral, socioecological, nutritional, morphological, and evolutionary aspects of exudate-feeding in primates. The Evolution of Exudativory in Primates covers exudate-feeding in callitrichines, callimicos, mouse lemurs, lorises, and galagos. Advances in our understanding of how these animals obtain their food and digest it, how this food resource affects social relationships, and how morphology is related to exudate-feeding are presented in subsequent essays. The final chapter synthesizes current data on what role exudate-feeding may have played in the earliest primates, the plesiadapiforms, and what exudate-feeding signals may be present in the fossil record.

Media reviews
From the reviews: "Exudativory, or exudate-feeding, is a dietary category that is remarkably prevalent among primates. ! Morphologist Burrows (Duquesne) and primatologist Nash (Arizona State) have compiled 14 chapters by 29 contributors covering all aspects of exudativory, including nutrition, digestion, ecology, evolution, and morphology (skull, temporomandibular joint, teeth, hands, feet, nails, and tongue). ! Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals in primatology, biological anthropology, and zoology." (E. J. Sargis, Choice, Vol. 48 (6), February, 2011)
