Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This well-written, accessible text offers an extensive introduction to the field, its methods, and the animals themselves.

Book News Annotation:

Frustration over not finding an up-to-date textbook that meshed with her course on primates led this U. of Albany anthropologist to write her own introduction to primate evolution, and methods and theory for studying diverse living primates. Includes photos, field notes, species distribution maps, chapter review exercises, and a glossary ending with the term "zygomatics." Falk is known for her "radiator theory" of brain evolution (not discussed here).
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Primate Diversity successfully synthesizes a thorough look at current primatology research while providing a careful examination of a variety of species.

About the Author

Dean Falk is professor of anthropology at Florida State University and honorary professor of human biology at the University of Vienna. Since receiving her Ph.D. in biological anthropology from the University of Michigan in 1976, her research has focused on early hominids, brain evolution, comparative neuroanatomy, and cognitive evolution (including language origins). Research on cranial blood flow and australopithecine endocasts led Falk to develop the "radiator theory" of brain evolution and to question the conventional interpretations of certain fossils. Falk is the author of Braindance: New Discoveries About Human Origins and Brain Evolution.
