SUMMARY

Primate Behavioral Ecology Third Edition Karen B. Strier Overview: Primate Behavioral Ecology, described as "an engaging, cutting-edge exposition," incorporates exciting new discoveries 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." Another reviewer states, "Overall, the synthesis and integration are outstanding…this is one of the best organized textbooks that I have ever seen, in any field…it is clear that Strier is actively involved in the forefront and not some armchair type!" Another adds, "Strier's writing style is a huge asset to keeping current information comprehensible for the target audience." Like no other text on the market, this comprehensive text integrates the basics of evolutionary and ecological approaches and new noninvasive molecular and hormonal techniques 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. ________________________________________________________________________ Features: Includes long-term studies across the primate order, including "New World Monkeys" and prosimians as well as "Old World Monkeys," which demonstrate much greater diversity than baboons, macaques, or apes encompass. Covers both social behavior and ecological adaptations. Emphasizes the interplay between theory, observation, and conservationissues throughout. Illustrates primates and behavioral and ecological principles through more than 150 photos and 50 graphs and diagrams. Discusses consequences of behavior patterns, such as how dispersal affects gene flowand why fragmented populations are at risk of extinction. Integrates classic studies, theoretical papers, and review articles with current referencesnearly 1,000 in all.Strier, Karen B. is the author of 'Primate Behavioral Ecology ', published 2006 under ISBN 9780205444328 and ISBN 0205444326.
