Spider monkeys are among the very widespread New World primate genera, which range from southern Mexico to Bolivia. Though they are common in zoos, spider monkeys are traditionally very hard to examine in the wild, as they’re fast moving, dwell high in the canopy and are nearly always found in tiny subgroups that change in size and makeup through the day.
The last decade has seen a rise in research being performed with this genus and this publication is an assimilation of both published and previously unpublished research. It’s a thorough source of information for academic researchers and graduate students interested in primatology, evolutionary anthropology and behavioral ecology and addresses subjects like taxonomy, diet, sexuality and reproduction, and conservation.
