About the Author John Fleagle John Fleagle is a primatologist whose research combines field studies and functional morpho-logical analysis.

He is interested in the adaptive radiation of primates during the last 50 million years. He has conducted paleobiological research in Egypt, Argentina, and Ethiopia and has studied living primates in Malaysia, Surinam, Brazil and Madagascar.

Fleagle is a MacArthur Fellow. An admirable book that deserves the success that it will undoubtedly achieve. For many university courses on primate biology, it will undoubtedly become a primary text. Primate Adaptation and Evolution is the readable and "seeable," but still traditional, textbook that my students have been waiting for someone to write. Here at last is an up-to-date, comprehensive and reliable textbook for courses in primate and human evolution It will, and should, stand as a major teaching resource for primate evolution for some years to come.

No other single work can match the range of its topics, which matches the interests of its author, one of the leading students of primate paleontology, behavior, morphology, and evolution.

Primate Adaptation and Evolution

Personal information is secured with SSL technology. Free Shipping No minimum order. Description Primate Adaptation and Evolution, Third Edition, is a thorough revision of the text of choice for courses in primate evolution. The book retains its grounding in the extant primate groups as the best way to understand the fossil trail and the evolution of these modern forms. However, this coverage is now streamlined, making reference to the many new and excellent books on living primate ecology and adaptation — a field that has burgeoned since the first edition of Primate Adaptation and Evolution. By drawing out the key features of the extant families and referring to more detailed texts, the author sets the scene and also creates space for a thorough updating of the exciting developments in primate palaeontology — and the reconstruction through early hominid species — of our own human origins. This updated version covers recent developments in primate paleontology and the latest taxonomy, and includes over new illustrations and revised evolutionary trees.

Hats off to Fleagle for producing a superb book that every primatologist needs and only he could write. One of the changes is that he now uses a suite of criteria to estimate body mass from fossil skeletons, rather than the single formula he formerly used. An admirable book that deserves the success that it will undoubtedly achieve. For many university courses on primate biology, it will undoubtedly become a primary text. Primate Adaptation and Evolution is the readable and "seeable," but still traditional, textbook that my students have been waiting for someone to write.
