Primate Behavioral Ecology
Primate Behavioral Ecology, described as an engaging, cutting-edge exposition, incorporates exciting new discoveries and the most up-to-date approaches in its introduction to the field and its applications of behavioral ecology to primate conservation. Linda L. Taylor of the University of Miami declares, I can't imagine teaching a course on primate behavior or ecology without this text...Strier's writing style is a huge asset to keeping current information comprehensible for the target audience. This unique, comprehensive, single-authored text integrates the basics of evolutionary, ecological, and demographic perspectives with contemporary noninvasive molecular and hormonal techniques to understand how different primates behave and the significance of these insights for primate conservation. Examples are drawn from the classic primate field studies and more recent studies on previously neglected species from across the primate order, illustrating the vast behavioral variation that we now know exists and the gaps in our knowledge that future studies will fill. William C. McGrew of the University of Cambridge, UK states, Overall, the synthesis and integration are outstanding!t armchair type!
