Abstract:

"Lemurs, monkeys, and apes are a diverse order of mammals known as the primates. Humans are primates and some of the expressive faces that appear in the photographs of this may remind you of people you know. We have great similarities with and great differences from our closest biological relatives, the primates, which is why they are so fascinating. With 505 currently recognized species, All the World's Primates lavishly illustrates all of their amazing faces. More than 100 of these primates have been described within the last 25 years. This book provides a map for each species and a wealth of concise information with more than 5000 references so that readers can find more information if they wish"--Jacket.
