Primates: the amazing world of lemurs, monkeys, and apesUser Review - Book Verdict
Natural history writer Sleeper and nature photographer Wolfe teamed up to provide photodocumentation of cat species in Wild Cats of the World (Crown, 1995). In their newest collaboration, they continue their examination of large mammals with large, full-colored glossy photographs of close to 100 primate species. These magnificent plates bring the animals up close, providing rich detail, and exhibit species rarely photographed such as the golden-handed tamarin and the aye-aye. The authors break down the primate species by geographical location but fail to address taxonomic relationships. Succinct text of 75-100 words touches on the basic behavior, food sources, and physical characteristics of each animal, but the glorious photogaphs makes this book a winner. For popular natural history collections.--Raymond Hamel, Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Ctr. Lib., Madison
