About this book

Virtually unknown and unstudied until twenty years ago, the doucs and snub-nosed monkeys occupy some of the most remote habitats of eastern Asia and exhibit some of the most unusual adaptations of any nonhuman primate. This volume provides detailed information on the biology, ecology, evolution and conservation of these rare Asian primates.
