The 2e of the gold standard text in the field, Nonhuman Primates in Biomedical Research provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the use of nonhuman primates in biomedical research. The publication emphasizes the biology and management, diseases, and biomedical models for nonhuman primate species most commonly used in research. Each chapter contains an extensive list of bibliographic references, photographs, and graphic illustrations to provide the reader with a thorough review of the subject.
The Biology and Management volume provides basic information on the natural biology of nonhuman primates and the current state of knowledge regarding captive management. The Diseases volume provides thorough reviews of naturally occurring diseases of nonhuman primates, with a section on biomedical models reviewing contemporary nonhuman primate models of human diseases.

"This comprehensive and up-to-date resource reflects the contributions of two dozen ACLAM Diplomates as well as those of other international primatology experts… State-of-the-art information and strategies for enrichment and enhancement of psychological well-being are presented along with a discussion of ethical concerns associated with the use of these species. This publication is an essential resource for facilities housing nonhuman primates and represents a significant achievement for all of the Diplomates involved in its creation and for the College as a whole."--ACLAM, Vol 43- No. 2, June 2012, page 3
