Starting with concise accounts for all the marmoset and tamarin monkeys species, this important new book then goes on to review their geographical distributions and taxonomy, along with comparative reviews of vocalizations, scent-marking, mating systems, infant care and development, social organization, and behavior and ecology in the wild. Several of these small-primate species are rare or threatened, and the subjects discussed here are strongly relevant to their management in captivity as well as for understanding natural populations. This is the first volume in several years to review current knowledge of this family, which comprises 52 species and subspecies found in the area from Panama to southern Brazil.
