About the Authors
  • Including valuable advice for those planning a field study, this practical manual for students and researchers studying wild primates provides essential information concerning the technical and practical aspects of field and laboratory methods. The study covers surveys and habituation, remote sensing and GPS, tracking and trapping, non-invasive genetic and endocrine assays, and ethical issues. It will be appropriate for final year undergraduates, postgraduate students and researchers in primatology, behavioral ecology and zoology.

    • First comprehensive guide to modern field and laboratory methods for the study of primates
    • Includes invaluable advice and tips from experienced fieldworkers for first time fieldworkers, or for established researchers wanting to try out new methods or to study new species
    • Emphasises practicalities and ethics throughout

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This outstanding collection of papers on field methods in the study of primate biology may be the most important reference for primatologists for the forseeable future.... Essential." Choice

    "... it fills a very important niche in the methodological literature. The book does an excellent job of demonstrating the application of relatively new technologies. We heartily recommend this book... much of the material in this book, and especially in the first and last chapters, would be of value to any researcher working in the field." Ethology
