About the Authors
  • Spider monkeys are one of the most widespread New World primate genera, ranging from southern Mexico to Bolivia. Although they are common in zoos, spider monkeys are traditionally very difficult to study in the wild, because they are fast moving, live high in the canopy and are almost always found in small subgroups that vary in size and composition throughout the day. This book is an assimilation of both published and previously unpublished research. It is a comprehensive source of information for academic researchers and graduate students interested in primatology, evolutionary anthropology and behavioral ecology and covers topics such as taxonomy, diet, sexuality and reproduction, and conservation.

    • Comparative studies from multiple fields allow the reader to examine genus-wide similarities and differences
    • Information on spider monkey taxonomy, distribution and conservation status enables access to this information from one source
    • Includes 14 chapters that review up-to-date reviews of currently available data as well as new, previously unpublished literature

    Reviews & endorsements

    'A book concentrating on spider monkeys is long overdue and this one succeeds in consolidating and reviewing current information and, in a few chapters, presents new information available from long-term field studies.' Primate Eye

    '… useful reference for academic researchers and graduate students.' Mammalia
