This volume covers aspects of ecology, behavior, genetics, taxonomy, 'cultural' patterns, hunting by non-human primates, physiology, dietary chemistry, and ecotourism, in several major clades of primates from galagos and pottos, through cercopithecoids, to hominoids.
The editors of this volume are all experienced primatologists. Vernon Reynolds studied chimpanzees in the Budongo Forest, Uganda, in 1962, and wrote his first book about that experience. He subsequently returned to found the Budongo Forest Project in 1990. This highly successful project continues today. Recently Prof Reynolds published...

Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:"West-Uganda hat in der primatologischen Forschung eine-Iange Tradition aufzuweisen, beginnend mit den ersten Begegnungen des Hauptmanns Robert von Beringe mit den Berggorillas, den Veröffentlichungen des Uganda Virus Institute und einer kontinuierlichen Forschung seit 1970 in den Wäldern des westlichen Uganda. In diesem Band sind ausschließlich unpublizierte, neue wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse über die Primaten dieser Region zusammengefasst. . Das Buch . gibt . eine gute Übersicht zur aktuellen primatologischen Forschung in Uganda und stellt die Diversität der Primaten West-Ugandas vor." (R. GERSTMEIER, in: Entomofauna, 2007, Vol. 28, Issue 10. S. 122 f.)
