Primate Adaptation and Evolution (Hardback)

£78.95
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This new fourth edition of Primate Adaptation and Evolution is a thorough update of the text of choice for courses in primate evolution. The book retains its grounding in the extant primate groups as the best way to understand the fossil trail and the evolution of these modern forms. However, this coverage is now more streamlined, referring to the many new and excellent books on living primate ecology and adaptation - a field that has burgeoned since the first edition of Primate Adaptation and Evolution.



By drawing out the key features of the extant families and referring to more detailed texts, Primate Adaptation and Evolution, Fourth Edition sets the scene and creates space for a thorough updating of the exciting developments in primate palaeontology and the reconstruction through early hominid species of our own human origins. This updated version covers recent developments in primate palaeontology and the latest taxonomy, and includes new visuals including helpful illustrations and evolutionary trees.



Primate Adaptation and Evolution, Fourth Edition is the ideal text for undergraduate and post-graduate students studying the evolution and functional ecology of primates and early fossil hominids.
