    Three major evolutionary trends are visible in primate communication. The first one has to do with the basic signal production mechanisms being increasingly controlled by complex cognition. This is evident by audience effects with gestural and vocal signals and by context-specific call sequences. The second transition has to do with increased control over signal morphology, a feature somewhat Author: Klaus Zuberbühler.   Alternatives to the use of non-human primates in research and testing do exist and can complement but not yet completely replace testing on these far as possible, the number of animals used should be reduced, methodologies should be refined, and the use of animals should be replaced by alternative methods (3Rs principle).

Such models also have been crucial to improving available treatments of Parkinson’s disease, including the development of dopamine agonists and deep brain stimulation. Further-File Size: KB. Thousands of non-human primates are used in research around the world because of their psychological and physiological similarity to humans. About 60% of primate species are threatened with extinction. Common threats include deforestation, forest fragmentation, monkey drives, and primate hunting for use in medicines, as pets, and for food.

This stunningly illustrated guide to the world's primates covers nearly species, from the feather-light and solitary pygmy mouse lemurs of Madagascar – among the smallest primates known to exist – to the regal mountain gorillas of Africa.

Baker. Primates practice various forms of food processing and by doing so modify the physical structure of food. Food processing is likely to affect food intake rate, passage time, and nutrient absorption.

In the sections below, we undertake a broad review of primate origins from the time of the dinosaurs up until the emergence of the first hominins.

Each section starts with a review of the major global patterns of geography and climate. Primate dentitions vary widely both between genera and between species within a genus. This book is a comparative dental anatomy of the teeth of living non-human primates that brings together information from many disciplines to present the most useful and comprehensive database possible in one consolidated : Daris R.

However, fewer volumes deal with both human and non-human primates, and those that do so tend to emphasize the behavioral con-tinuity between human and non-human. Feeding and Nutrition of Nonhuman Primates is a report of a two-day meeting that aims to evaluate the knowledge and information regarding the diet of primates.

The meeting also aims to recommend significant information necessary to accomplish a standardized diet for this species. Purchase Nonhuman Primates in Biomedical Research, Volume 1 - 2nd Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBN.
