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.One reviewer declares, "I can't imagine teaching a course on primate behavior or ecology without this text."This unique, comprehensive, single-authoredtext 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.

Karen B. Strier is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
