About this book

The field of primatology has grown to become very complex and now incorporates information from molecular genetics, physiology, and brain studies. Many of the texts imparting this information are much too advanced for undergraduate students.

Pia Nystrom & Pamela Ashmore present to you a comprehensive text written about nonhuman primates built from the ground up written for the undergraduate student. The Life of Primates helps students tackle the complex ideas and issues of primatology by first establishing the context and groundwork from which these studies were conducted.
