Introduction to the Primates
By Daris R. Swindler
Price Rs. 495
Pages
284, Paperbound,
ISBN 81 88689 033,
Year of Pub. 2004
Description
Introduction to the Primates is a comprehensive but
compact guide to the long evolutionary history of the
world's prosimians, monkeys, and apes, and to the much
shorter history of humankind's interactions with them,
from our earliest recorded observations to the severe
threats we now pose to their survival.
Daris Swindler provides a detailed description of the
major primate groups and their environments, from the
smallest lemurs of Madagascar to the gorillas of central
Africa. He compares and contrasts the primate species,
looking at each with a specific anatomical focus. The
range of diversity emerges as the particular
characteristics of the species becomes increasingly
distinct. Swindler also considers primate behavior and its
close connections with environment and evolutionary
differences. His account of 65 million years of successful
adaptation and evolution demonstrates the drama of
paleontology as evidence accrues and gaps in the history
of primate evolution gradually close.
