From the reviews:
"I can point ... this book as the perfect place to get `cool stuff' on ringtailed lemurs. ... this book is a must-have and instant classic for any existing or budding researchers with an interest in ringtailed lemurs. The data will be of interest to anyone conducting meta-analysis studies of primate diets. ... the book will find its way onto the bookshelves of many professional primatologists and mammologists. I also think that the book will be of interest to amateur naturalists and students ... ." (Shawn M. Lehman, Journal of Mammalian Evolution, Vol. 15, 2008)
