The study of primate ecology and conservation has advanced rapidly in recent years. This practical volume brings together a group of distinguished primate researchers to synthesize field, laboratory, and conservation management techniques for primate ecology and conservation. The synthesis focuses on new and emerging field methods alongside a comprehensive presentation of laboratory and data analysis techniques, as well as the latest methods for determining conservation status and conservation management. This book's particular focus is on innovative ways to study primates in a changing world, including emerging methods such as non-invasive genetic techniques and advanced spatial modeling. In addition to synthesizing field and lab methods, the authors also discuss data interpretation, as well as important guiding questions and principles for students and researchers to consider as they plan research projects in primate ecology and conservation such as: how to choose a field site, acquire research permits, connect with local authorities, communities and researchers, and many other considerations. Although three chapters are dedicated to conservation methods, consideration of conservation status and threats to primate populations are considered throughout this volume where appropriate. This latest publication in the Techniques in Ecology and Conservation Series aims to provide a practical empirical reference text with an international scope, appropriate for graduate students, researchers, and conservation professionals across the globe.

In sum, this is an excellent book for graduate students, young researchers, and more established practitioners, in providing an exceptional range of ecological and conservation methods and techniques under a single cover. Going forward it will be a required reading for each of my graduate students as they start to contemplate their own research projects, and a volume that I will donate to collaborators in developing countries * Herbert H Covert, Biological Conservation *
a comprehensive resource ... a valuable empirical reference text for conservation practitioners. * Yamato Tsuji, Primates *
this is a great book, packed with information, full of technical details but still accessible to nonexperts on a specific discipline or technique ... I believe this book will soon become a must in any University library ... it is an excellent read for students, scientists and practitioners involved with animal management and conservation. * Bonaventura Majolo, Animal Beahviour *
There is a huge corpus of knowledge condensed here, that will enable anyone wishing to develop research on primates in the wild to see what is now possible, and the types of questions that can be addressed. * David L. Hawksworth, Biodiversity and Conservation *
the content provides a good overview to the numerous topics related to the study of primate ecology and conservation. ... the book will be very useful as a quick key reference to field project managers, students, and project supervisors wishing to plan and/or teach methodological aspects of primate ecology and conservation research. * Camille N.Z. Coudrat, Folia Primatol *
