A greatly revised and reformatted edition, now with companion CD-ROM! The second edition of this outstanding workbook by a veteran primatologist conveys the fascination, ecstasy, and unpredictability inherent in the scientific research of primates. Seven introductory chapters incorporate the latest concepts in the field, offering a detailed guide for conducting scientific behavioral studies. Paterson explains the two main categories of statistics, demonstrates the practicalities of calculating a standard deviation, and discusses the usefulness of different high-tech devices for data collection and recording. Twenty-three classroom-tested exercises--designed to implement the skills and techniques described in the first section--emphasize accuracy, precision, and effective communication of results. Relevant forms for recording and presenting research data are provided at the end of each exercise. A suite of field ecology exercises make the workbook useful at field school sites. Seasoned researchers as well as those new to the discipline of primatology research will benefit from this thorough, well-organized workbook. The companion CD-ROM includes relevant forms for recording and presenting research data as well as training video samples.
