About the book:
A new addition to the successful ‘Quick ID guide’ series, Primates is a succinct survey of the features and habits of our closest relatives. Divided into the three main primate groups – great apes, typical monkeys and prosimians (including the bushbabies) – this easy-to-use guide provides pertinent facts, annotated photographs and up-to-date distribution maps to help readers accurately identify the most commonly seen and charismatic primates in the field.
Each entry features:
• Full-colour photographs with pointers to diagnostic features
• Size, lifespan, key ID features
• Behavioural characteristics, diet, conservation status and similar species
• Distribution maps
