From the Back Cover:

The remote Gashaka region of north-eastern Nigeria is still largely unexplored. In this premier wilderness, monkeys and apes survive in large numbers – part of a rich assemblage of wildlife at the interface between the dry sub-Saharan Guinea savannah and the moist Cameroonian highlands.

Primates include the rarest chimpanzee subspecies, colobus, guenons and baboons, which thrive here despite the wet climate. The main ethnic groups – Fulani cattle herders and Hausa speaking subsistence farmers – still follow age-old traditions. Conservation challenges comprise settlements in protected areas, deforestation, annual fires, livestock grazing and hunting.

Primates of Gashaka provides first-hand research accounts in conjunction with the Gashaka Primate Project, founded in 2000. Topics covers primate socioecology; genetics and phylogeography; nutritional ecology; vocal communication and cognition; ethno-botany and ethno-primatology; human subsistence strategies and conflicts with wildlife; as well as habitat surveys assessing success and failure of conservation approaches. The contributions aim for interdisciplinarity and comparative dimensions, across species and the African continent.

This pioneering volume about one of the least known iconic primate habitats is of interest to primatologists, anthropologists, policy-makers and conservationists alike.

Review:

From the reviews:

“This is an important publication about a little-known and only recently explored and studied area for African primates. ... It achieves the stated aim of the editors for the contributions to be of an interdisciplinary dimension from across the African continent. ... sections of the book are well illustrated by figures, maps, and photographs. Each chapter is well supported by references and several chapters have useful appendices. ... excellent source material and much more, for those interested in nature conservation and primates in West Africa.” (Ray Heaton, Primate Eye, June, 2012)

“The editors and authors provide a definitive summary of interdisciplinary research activities carried out at the park by the Gashaka Primate Project (GPP) over the first 10 years of the organization’s existence. ... Primates of Gashaka is essential reading for anyone interested primates or biodiversity conservation in western Africa, and it is destined to become a classic reference for primatologists, biologists, anthropologists, decision-makers, and conservationists.” (Mary Katherine Gonder, The Quarterly Review of Biology Vol. 87 (4), December, 2012)
