About the Authors
  • This volume brings together primary data from a variety of primate species living in both natural habitats and experimental settings, and explores the variables that may play a role in primates' behavioral strategies. Taken together, these studies demonstrate that predator sensitive foraging is relevant to many primates, of various body sizes and group sizes and living in different environments. Eat or be Eaten encourages further discussion and investigation of the subject and will make fascinating reading for researchers and students in primatology, ecology, and animal behavior.

    • Was the first book to review and advance study of predator sensitive foraging in primates
    • Explores field work and experimental work on 23 primate species
    • Contributions from leading researchers in the field

    "Succinct...each [paper] is short and to the point, with a clear empirical focus and a commendably uniform format. This book [provides] a very useful compendium of knowledge." Ecoscience
