The increasing use of nonhuman primates in biological and behavioral sciences has made us aware of the many gaps in our knowledge of these animals. In this book 21 contributors have brought together the literature on reproductive biology. Besides its intrinsic value, knowledge of reproductive patterns in these species would be of practical use in the establishment of breeding colonies.
The first chapter deals with phylogeny and genetics; the appendexes have a classification of living primates and alphabetical listings of vernacular and genetic names. Male and female reproduction, gametogenesis, gestation, parturition, lactation, and postnatal development are thoroughly discussed. Patterns of
