Nursery Rearing of Nonhuman Primates in the 21st Century describes how and why nursery rearing of primates can produce adaptable juveniles and adults for research, conservation, and display-educational purposes. The volume details the history of nursery rearing since the mid-19th century, the outcomes of varied nursery rearing methods, the contemporary goals of nursery rearing as well as reference data derived from species commonly reared in nursery or hand-feeding situations.

Examples of the changing goals of nursery rearing covered in this volume are the need for biological containment in disease research, the production of specific pathogen-free colonies by removal of neonates from the mother, the production of phenotypes for genetic and molecular biology studies, and the breeding of endangered species for conservation or research purposes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book provides both basic and applied information pertaining to the consequences and interventions used in nursery rearing. ... This volume is very comprehensive and provides an excellent resource for scientists interested in the effect of early differential rearing on behavioral and physiological development. ... In summary, this book is well organized, well written, and informative. It is an excellent contribution to the practical and research findings on primate infant development." (William D. Hopkins, Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 82, June, 2007)
