About the Authors
  • Living across Africa and the Caribbean, this widely dispersed primate population must adapt to different environmental challenges. How do members of the genus Chlorocebus live in desert-like conditions and in areas with freezing temperatures and snow in winter? This book examines the ways these primates adapt genetically, hormonally, physically and behaviourally to their changing landscapes. It features summary chapters for major topics such as behavioural ecology, life history, taxonomy, genetics and ethnoprimatology. Shorter essays supplement the work, with experts detailing their particular research on these primates. The combination of scholarship provides both a comprehensive view of this adaptable genus while enabling the reader to gain depth in specific topics. Developed from a symposium, this book combines decades of experience working with savanna monkeys into a tangible resource, for students and researchers in primatology as well as evolutionary and behavioural studies.

    • Focuses on a primate common throughout Africa and the Caribbean yet noticeably understudied, to bring much needed scholarly emphasis to this adaptable genus
    • Offers insights and learning from experts with more than four decades of experience working on aspects of vervet life history
    • Developed from a large symposium, this book collates a wide spectrum of learning and contributions into a crucial resource
