Threatened primates of Africa : the IUCN red data book
This volume provides the most comprehensive review available of the conservation status of African primates. Thirty species, comprising over 50% of the primate fauna of the continent, have been identified as threatened, ranging from the little-known Angwantibo to the gorilla and chimpanzee. For each species a detailed account is provided, with information on distribution, population status, habitat, ecology, threats to survival and conservation action, as well as a summary of captive breeding efforts and a bibliography. An introduction places this information in the broader context of African primate conservation and discusses such issues as the uses of primates in biomedical research and the vital role they play as indicators of habitat loss.
