9780521004244: Comparative Primate Socioecology (Cambridge Studies in Biological and Evolutionary Anthropology)

Comparative studies have become both more frequent and more important as a means for understanding the biology, behavior, and evolution of mammals. Primates have complex social relationships and diverse ecologies, and represent a large species radiation. This book draws together a wide range of experts from diverse fields, such as reproductive biology and foraging energetics, to place recent field research into a synthetic perspective. The chapters tackle controversial issues in primate biology and behavior, including the role of brain expansion and infanticide in the evolution of primate behavioral strategies. The volume also presents an overview of comparative methodologies as applied to recent primate research.

Book Description:

Comparative studies are becoming increasingly important as a means for understanding the biology, behaviour and evolution of mammals especially primates. This is the first book to draw together a wide range of experts to place recent field research on primates, especially on less well known species, into a synthetic perspective. The authors look at controversial issues surrounding the evolution of primate behavioural strategies including those of humans, and give an overview of comparative methods for future research. It will rapidly become a valuable addition to all primatologists' bookshelves.

About the Author:

P. C. Lee is a lecturer in Biological Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. She began field work on baboons in 1975 and has maintained an interest in the socioecology and behaviour of primates and other large mammals ever since. She has written numerous papers and has co-edited three previous volumes on primates: Primate Evolution, Primate Ecology and Conservation and Primate Ontogeny, Cognition and Behaviour (all 1986) and co-authored The Threatened Primates of Africa.
