About the Author:

Stuart A. Altmann (1930-2016) was a field biologist. He and his wife, Jeanne Altmann, collaborated on baboon research in Amboseli National Park in Kenya, in one of the world’s best-known long-term field studies of primates. He was a professor at the University of Alberta, Yerkes National Primate Research Center, the University of Chicago, and Princeton University.

Review:

"This book is destined to become a classic in primate feeding behavior. It is exhaustive and a pleasure to read, and it sets the standard for amalgamation of modeling theory and ecological observation." (Joanna E. Lambert American Scientist)

"The gold standard for research on naturalistic behavior and ecology of primates." (Peter S. Rodman American Journal of Primatology)

Book Description The University of Chicago Press, United States, 1998. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This text presents the results of a research project carried out on foraging behaviour among African baboons and its consequences for survival and reproduction. Detailed data is provided on the feeding habits of each baboon, with an analysis of its nutrient intake. These figures are then compared with those in optimum diets. The most striking result of this study is that the baboon s subsequent survival and reproductive success could be accurately predicted from what they had eaten as yearlings. The animals with energy intakes closest to the optimum and protein intakes furthest above their requirements were most likely to survive to adulthood and to successfully produce offspring.
