The Complete Capuchin: The Biology of the Genus Cebus
Cambridge University Press, Jun 21, 2004 - Science - 339 pages
Capuchin monkeys in the genus Cebus are one of the most widely distributed genera of primates in Central and South America. They have captivated the imaginations of scientists and the lay public alike with their creative and highly variable behavior, their grace and power in action, and their highly developed social character. This book explores our understanding of capuchins in relation to their lives in nature, their physical, mental and social characteristics, and in comparison to other monkeys.
