Reviews

@from:Praise for the Volume @qu:"...there is an enormous amount of information in this book covering all areas of laboratory primatology... this book is a valuable synthesis of a very broad field. As such it is a useful first point of reference for people who are involved in biomedical research with non-human primates and who would use the chapters as a starting point rather than as a definitive view." @source:--Robert Hubrecht in ANIMAL WELFARE @qu:"An invaluable reference... there is no other text as comprehensive in scope and information on this subject... convince your institution to buy it." @source:--Mark Klinger in ASLAP NEWSLETTER @qu:"...this is an outstanding publication that combines high scholastic standards with pragmatism... The consistently high quality throughout must reflect the method chosen to assemble this book: three experienced editors, selection of expert authors for each chapter, and the use of a panel of critical reviewers of similar expertise." @source:--Tim Morris in LABORATORY ANIMALS @qu:"For anyone involved in the care and use of nonhuman primates, this textbook is an important and mandatory addition to their library." @source:--Clayton L. Hadick in JOURNAL OF AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
