    From the snub-nosed monkeys of China to the mountain gorillas of central Africa, our closest nonhuman relatives are in critical danger worldwide. A recent report, for example, warns that nearly 20 percent of the world’s primates may go extinct within the next ten or twenty years. In this book Guy Cowlishaw and Robin Dunbar integrate cutting-edge theoretical advances with practical management. The majority of papers that investigate competition in primate communities do not include non-primate competitors, with the exception of Beaudrot et al., who also searched for checkerboard distributions and found that evidence for competition among primates and other taxa was stronger than for competition between primates only. Although this.

For residents of forest fragment communities, the odds of reporting primate contact was over six times higher than for residents in control communities (OR= ; 95% confidence interval –). The odds of a Mukiga participant reporting primate contact was significantly higher than for a Mutooro participant (OR = ; 95% confidence.

    The PrimateLit database provides bibliographic access to the scientific literature on nonhuman primates for the research and educational communities. Coverage of the database spans to November and includes all publication categories (articles, books, abstracts, technical reports, dissertations, book chapters, etc.) and many subject. Current research projects are concerned with four areas: (1) the evolution of monkeys, apes and humans in Africa and Asia, (2) the evolutionary history of New World monkeys, (3) ecological comparison of primate communities, and (4) comparative primate cranial morphology.

Examining a primate's activity budget gives primatologists a good idea of how that particular primate (or primate group) "makes a living". For example, if squirrel monkey (pictured right) Group A spends 30% of its time foraging and squirrel monkey Group B spends 40% of its time foraging, then one can assume that there is something going on that.

As it brings together information about primate communities from around the world for the very first time, it will quickly become an important source book for researchers in anthropology, ecology and conservation, and a readable and informative text for undergraduate and graduate students studying primate ecology, primate conservation or primate behavior.

Book Description Primates have been studied more than any other mammalian group, but until now the differences and similarities of primate communities in different parts of the world have not been compared. This book will therefore be a unique source book and text for students and researchers in primatology, anthropology and : Paperback.

Abstract: This chapter provides a basic introduction to the terminology and general concepts of primate behavior and ecology. It discusses the types of habitats primates occupy and their characteristics. Primate species differ in their patterns of land use, including home ranges and day ranges.
