Beschreibung

This volume details the different ways that nocturnal primates avoid predators. It is a first of its kind within primatology, and is therefore the only work giving a broad overview of predation - nocturnal primate predation theory in particular - in the field

Additionally, the book incorporates several chapters on the theoretical advances that researchers studying nocturnal primates need to make.


From the reviews:

"This volume concerns itself with the behaviour of primates when confronted with predators or the risk of predation. Overall, primate predation is certainly an understudied topic in our field. Primates (as prey) need to asses predator risk first by identification of the threat and then implement an appropriate anti-predatory strategy. The Gursky and Nekaris volume certainly adds to an interesting topic in search of hard empirical data and predictable patterns. I recommend reading this book." (Daniel L. Gebo, Journal of Mammalian Evolution, Vol. 14, 2007)
