About the Authors
  • Feeding Ecology in Apes and Other Primates focuses on evolutionary perspectives of the complex interactions between the environment, food sources, physiology and behaviour in primates. This highly interdisciplinary volume provides a benchmark to assess dietary alterations that affected human evolution by putting the focus on the diet of hominid primates. It also offers a fresh perspective on the behavioural ecology of the last common ancestor by integrating corresponding information from both human and non-human primates. The potential of innovations of applied biotechnology are also explored to set new standards for future research on feeding ecology, and new information on feeding ecology in humans, apes and other primates is synthesized to help refine or modify current models of socioecology. By taking a comparative view, this book will be interesting to primatologists, anthropologists, behavioural ecologists and evolutionary biologists who want to understand better non-human primates, and the primate that is us.

    • Comparative approach on the evolution of primate feeding ecology is interesting to a wide range of researchers including primatologists, anthropologists, behavioural ecologists and evolutionary biologists
    • Offers new perspective on the behavioural ecology of our own ancestors by integrating findings from other primate species
    • Highly interdisciplinary, and explores the potential of applied biotechnology to set new standards for future research in feeding ecology
