Jean-Jacques Petter & François Desbordes. Translated by Robert Martin.
This stunningly illustrated guide to the world's primates covers nearly 300 species, from the feather-light and solitary pygmy mouse lemurs of Madagascar--among the smallest primates known to exist--to the regal Mountain Gorillas of Africa. Organised by region and spanning every family of primates on Earth, the book features 72 splendid colour plates, facing-page descriptions of key features of each family, and 86 colour distribution maps.
Includes concise introductory chapters that discuss the latest findings on primate origins and evolution, behaviour and adaptations, and classification, making it the most comprehensive and up-to-date primate guide available. 192 pages.
