Description - Old World Monkeys by Paul F. Whitehead

Old World monkeys (Cercopithecoidea) are the most successful and diverse group of living nonhuman primates in terms of the number of species, behavioral repertoires and ecology. They have much to teach us about the processes of evolution and the principles of ecology, and are among our closest living relatives. This volume presents a broad, technical account of cercopithecoid biology including molecular, behavioral and morphological approaches to phylogeny, population structure, allometry, fossil history, functional morphology, ecology, cognitive capabilities, social behavior and conservation. It will be the definitive reference on this group for professionals and graduate students in primatology, animal behavior, paleontology, morphology, systematics and physical anthropology, but will also be useful to senior undergraduates.
