Chimpanzee and Red Colobus by Craig B. Stanford
Book DescriptionThis text provides a detailed account of a predator-prey relationship involving two primates, documents a six-year investigation into how the risk of predation molds primate society. It explores how predation by wild chimpanzees - in the Gombe National Park - has influenced the behaviour, ecology, and demography of a population of red colobus monkeys. As he explores the effects of chimpanzees' hunting, Craig Stanford also asks why these creatures prey on the red colobus. Because chimpanzees are often used as models of how early humans might have lived. These findings offer insight into the possible role of early hominids as predators.

Planet Without Apes, Paperback (November 2014)
Can we live with the consequences of wiping our closest relatives off the face of the Earth, and all the biological knowledge about ourselves that would die along with them? Extinction of the great apes threatens to become a reality within a few human generations. Stanford tells us how we can redirect the course of an otherwise bleak future.

Explains how and why apes and dolphins are so distantly related yet so cognitively alike and what this teaches us about another large-brained mammal: Homo sapiens. Pointing out that apes and dolphins have had no common ancestor in nearly 100 million years, this book describes the parallel evolution that gave rise to their intelligence.
