Summary: Primate Diversity successfully synthesizes a thorough look at current primatology research while providing a careful examination of a variety of species. This well-written, accessible text offers an extensive introduction to the field, its methods, and the animals themselves.

Highlights of Primate Diversity
Balanced, Integrated Presentation
A balanced and in-depth introduction to primatology, Primate Diversity includes solid coverage of
primate evolution, ecology, and behavior, without overwhelming students with topics and details that are too technical for an undergraduate audience.


Special Materials Highlighting Current Research
"In the Field" boxes featuring a researcher and his or her fieldwork provide interesting first-person accounts of particular primate behaviors and research techniques, and give students a behind-the-scenes look at how primate researchers do their work.


"Neural Notes" boxes discuss current research on how primate brains function. Topics include how primate brains differ from those of other mammals, just how "smart" monkeys and apes really are, the neurological basis of smell, and brain evolution in Old World monkeys.


Practical Pedagogy
Primate Diversity includes several elements that help students get the most out of their reading: Content outlines begin each chapter; key terms are highlighted when first used and are included in a glossary at the end of the text; and every chapter contains several "Review Question" sections (in the margin) that highlight key concepts and facts for the reader. Answers
to the Review Exercises are available in PDF format. Viewing requires the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
