Primate Ontogeny, Cognition and Social Behaviour (Selected Proceedings of the Tenth Congress of the International Primatological Society held in Nairobi, Kenya in July 1984)
By Else James G. and Lee, Phyllis C. (editors)
Pp. xiii, 410; numerous text-figures and black-and-white photos. Original black pictorial stiff wrappers, lettered in white and green on the spine and front cover, 8vo. Presents 38 chapters by noted authorities in the field. This volume presents a comprehensive review of the current research in the fields of primate thought, learning and behavioral development. Recent theories of the ways in which primates perceive their world are integrated with the ways that they behave and communicate about each other and their environment. Many different species in both the wild and in captivity are discussed with coverage from the social development of neonates to the behavior of adults. The common theme to the contributions is an attempt to understand how primates perceive, learn about and manipulate their social and physical environment (from the blurb on the rear wrapper). No ownership marks and no signs of use.
