Perspectives in primate biology,comprehensive volume of original papers on primate biology explore in depth some of the crucial issues that are emerging in prikmate studies. It focusses attention on the biological,social and ecological determinants that contribute to primate biology.Written by experts in various aspects of primatology,this volume is an indispensable treatise on primates and is also an appropriate reference source for experienced professionals and students. Perspectives primate biology features up-to date coverage of wide ranging accounts of promate studies and includes theoretical considerations as well as empirical results from the laboratory and the field. The volume consists of four sections: section i covers primate sensory modalities and perceptual processes. Ontogeny,genetics and evolution are discussed in section III while the final section IV examines the interrelationship of ecology,social behaviour and population.
