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. "Primate Behavioral Ecology fills a tremendous need for a book that integrates contemporary behavioral ecology, evolutionary theory, and conservation concerns as they pertain to primates.
