In order to meld the facts of organic diversity with the continuity of the evolutionary process, this volume details the diversity of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches currently employed by primate evolutionary biologists and paleontologists. Specific coverage includes: species concepts and their role in evolutionary theory, the speciation process and the biology of species differences among living primates, and the problems of species recognition in the primate fossil record.
