The Barbary Macaque: A Case Study in Conservation
By Nader, Ronald D. et al. (editors)
Pp. xvii, 369; numerous black-and-white photos, maps, line-drawings and diagrams. Publisher’s original brown cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, two-color pictorial dust jacket, lg 8vo. The survival of Barbary macaque – a species that has figured largely in the history of Mediterranean civilization – is not in jeopardy. This volume presents all known data on the current position of the Barbary macaque in the wild and in captive and semi-natural environment written in hope that conservation measures can be undertaken to alleviate the precarious status of the species. There are 13 chapters and 3 appendices on the habitat, geographic distribution changes, taxonomy, behavior, recent survey figures, demography, feeding ecology, genetics, conservation measures, the status of Gibraltar populations, and the role of zoos and wildlife parks in promoting conservation of the species (from the jacket flap). There is a small name-stamp of Michael Hutchins on the front endpaper.
