A 1985 amendment to the Animal Welfare Act requires those who keep nonhuman primates to develop and follow appropriate plans for promoting the animals' psychological well-being. But the amendment provides few specifics.The Psychological Well-Being of Nonhuman Primates recommends workable approaches to meeting those requirements. The volume focuses on what is known about the psychological needs of primates and makes practical suggestions for assessing and promoting their well-being.The committee examines the elements of an effective care program -- social companionship, opportunities for species-typical activity, housing and sanitation, and daily care routines -- and provides a helpful checklist for administrators.The book provides a wealth of specific and useful information about the psychological attributes and needs of the most widely used and exhibited nonhuman primates. Readable and well organized, it will be welcomed by animal care and use committees, facilities administrators, enforcement inspectors, animal advocates, researchers, veterinarians, and caretakers.National Research Council Staff is the author of 'Psychological Well-Being of Nonhuman Primates' with ISBN 9780309052337 and ISBN 0309052335.
