Phylogeny of the Primates: A Multidisciplinary Approach
By Luckett, W. Patrick and Szalay, Frederick S. (editors)
Pp. xiv, 483; numerous text-figures (mostly line-drawings and graphs, some black-and-white photos). Publisher’s original red cloth, lettered in black on the spine with images of primates printed in black on the front board, pictorial tan dust jacket lettered in red on the spine and front cover, lg 8vo. Proceedings of the Wenner-Gren Symposium #61 held in Burg Wartenstein, Austria on July 6-14, 1974. This volume attempts to illuminate phylogenetic relationships among living and fossil primates from a broad interdisciplinary viewpoint. It draws upon a variety of evidence from interrelated disciplines such as anatomy, embryology, paleontology, molecular biology and ethology. When this volume first appeared in 1975, it was trendsetting and changed the way researchers viewed primate phylogeny for the next 40+ years. No ownership marks and few signs of use.
