It is considered to be a must read for all students interested in primates.

Behavioral Ecology, Primate. Primate behavioral ecology is a subfield of primatology that employs evolutionary and ecological approaches to investigate the behavior of living primates. The approach is predicated on the assumption that behavioral traits, similar to morphological and physiological traits, are shaped by evolutionary selection pressures because of the differential fitness benefits they confer on individuals.

Read this book using Google Play Books app on your PC, android, iOS devices. This comprehensive introductory text integrates evolutionary, ecological, and demographic perspectives with new results from field studies and contemporary noninvasive molecular and hormonal techniques to understand how different primates behave and the significance of these insights for primate conservation.

Primate Behavioral Ecology is an introduction to the field and its applications to primate conservation. Like no other text on the market, this comprehensive text integrates the basics of evolutionary and ecological approaches 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. This text meets the tremendous need for a textbook that integrates contemporary behavioral ecology, evolutionary theory, and conservation concerns as they pertain to primates.
I'm just becoming interested in biology.
I've read about a third of the book, and I'm half way through because I skipped some parts while I collected information for my essay. I still haven't read about development and communication.

A major focus is explaining primate behaviors and morphology from the ecological and evolutionary perspectives. It takes into account things like population distribution, food supply, and dominance hierarchies. The chapters always start out very interesting although some of her in-depth explanations of why the primates behave in particular ways made me yawn, but I'm more interested in cellular biology anyway. There are distinguished portions of text that contain fascinating topics which encompass subjects beyond primatology.

The parts comparing primate diets and primate anatomy were very interesting. They led me to get other primate books which are more aligned with my interests.

If you get the third edition, as I did, be aware that the taxonomic tree on page 52 is out-dated. Superfamily Hominoidea has undergone some major renovations.
The book acknowledges the Tarsier's debated classification, although you won't know about it if you just look at the picture without reading the chapter's text.
The back of the book has a great, long table categorizing every primate species.
Rented for class. Had a lot of insightful information and was easy to read.
The text is solid without being too heavy. I found it to be a fairly easy read (all textbooks are at least a little dry). The book itself isn't terribly thick and when supplemented with quality lectures it makes for a great textbook. I would recommend it to students and instructors alike.
good
The condition matches the listing.
this book is in good shape and is very informative. i'd recommend it to anyone who is interested in how monkey's live. they are wonderful beings! and so cute!
Book was in great shape . Delivered on time ! The book itself was a good read . I read it for a weekend class and it didn't take long to read. It was an interesting subject .
I had to buy this book for my primatology class this semester. The book is very informative and a good starting point for those interested in Primatology.
