Summary

Primate Behavioral Ecology , described as an engaging, cutting-edge exposition, incorporates exciting new discoveries in its introduction to the field and its applications of behavioral ecology to primate conservation. One reviewer declares, I can't imagine teaching a course on primate behavior or ecology without this text. Like no other text on the market, this comprehensive text integrates the basics of evolutionary and ecological approaches and new noninvasive molecular and hormonal techniques to the study of primate behavior with up-to-date coverage of how different primates behave. Examples are drawn from the classic primate field studies and more recent studies on previously neglected species, illustrating the vast behavioral variation that we now know exists and the gaps in our knowledge that future studies will fill. Another reviewer states, Overall, the synthesis and integration are outstandingthis is one of the best organized textbooks that I have ever seen, in any fieldit is clear that Strier is actively involved in the forefront and not some armchair type! Another adds, Strier's writing style is a huge asset to keeping current information comprehensible for the target audience.
