Primate Behavioral Ecology 5th Edition PDF. This edition, like its four predecessors, is an introduction to the field of primate behavioral ecology and its applications to primate conservation.
Primate Behavioral Ecology 5th Edition PDF
It integrates the basics of evolutionary and ecological approaches to the study of behavior with up-to-date coverage of how different primates actually behave. Examples are drawn from the “classic” primate field studies as well as more recent studies from diverse species across the Primate Order to illustrate the vast behavioral variation that we now know exists, and the gaps in our knowledge that future studies will fill. Throughout the book, the interplay among theory, observations, and conservation issues is emphasized.
All of the material carried over from the previous editions has been updated so that it tracks the new directions in which primate behavioral ecology is moving. This has resulted in some substantive enhancements and additions to nearly every chapter. Some of the highlights of this edition include:
● Thorough integration of behavioral flexibility and its implications for evolutionary and ecological theory, responses to altered habitats and climate variables, local behavioral traditions, our interpretations of cognition studies, and the ethical treatment of primates.
● New coverage of nutrient balancing, microbiomes, and ethnoprimatology.
● Expanded discussion of behavioral development, ethics, and field methods.
● Critical evaluation of insights that new life history, demographic, and genetic studies
