Praise for the Volume
"...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." --Robert Hubrecht in ANIMAL WELFARE

"An invaluable reference... there is no other text as comprehensive in scope and information on this subject... convince your institution to buy it." --Mark Klinger in ASLAP NEWSLETTER

"...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." --Tim Morris in LABORATORY ANIMALS

"For anyone involved in the care and use of nonhuman primates, this textbook is an important and mandatory addition to their library." --Clayton L. Hadick in JOURNAL OF AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
