Covering colobine biology, behaviour, ecology and conservation, this book summarises current knowledge of this fascinating group of primates.
Ikki Matsuda is an Associate Professor at Chubu University Academy of Emerging Sciences, Advisor at Japan Monkey Centre, and specially appointed Associate Professor at the Wildlife Research Center of Kyoto University, Japan. His expertise in primate ecology, in particular of the proboscis monkey, is based on extensive fieldwork. Cyril C. Grueter is a primatologist and biological anthropologist. He is a Senior Lecturer at The University of Western Australia, Perth, and Adjunct Professor at the International Centre of Biodiversity and Primate Conservation, Dali University, China. He has been actively involved in research on snub-nosed monkeys in China since 2002, mountain gorillas in Rwanda since 2009, and chimpanzees and colobus monkeys in Rwanda since 2015. Julie A. Teichroeb is a primate behavioural ecologist and Associate Professor at the University of Toronto Scarborough, Canada. She has studied wild black-and-white colobus monkeys since 2000 in Ghana and Uganda, and also currently examines spatial ecology in vervet monkeys in Uganda. She is the co-editor of Primate Research and Conservation in the Anthropocene (Cambridge University Press, 2019).
