From the reviews:
"Exudativory, or exudate-feeding, is a dietary category that is remarkably prevalent among primates. ... Morphologist Burrows (Duquesne) and primatologist Nash (Arizona State) have compiled 14 chapters by 29 contributors covering all aspects of exudativory, including nutrition, digestion, ecology, evolution, and morphology (skull, temporomandibular joint, teeth, hands, feet, nails, and tongue). ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals in primatology, biological anthropology, and zoology." (E. J. Sargis, Choice, Vol. 48 (6), February, 2011)
"This book takes a broad perspective and reviews the state of the art of our knowledge on primate exudativory from different view-points. ... the book will be of interest and appeal to primate ecologists and evolutionary biologists, and to anthropologists and mammalogists interested in feeding strategies and adaptations. I can highly recommend this book to everyone." (Eckhard W. Heymann, Folia Primatologica, Vol. 82, 2011)
"Book edited by Anne M. Burrows and Lean T. Nash ... is based on a symposium held at the 22nd Congress of the International Primatological Society in Edinburg in 2008. ... the book certainly stimulates interesting thoughts and will inspire further in-depth studies on exudativory in primates and other taxa. I do recommend this ... book for those interested in primate ecology, functional morphology, and evolution. It will certainly be the major reference on primate exudativory ... ." (Melanie Dammhahn, International Journal of Primatology, Vol. 33, 2012)
