South American Primates: Comparative Perspectives in the Study of Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation (Developments in Primatology: Progress and Prospects), edited by P. A. Garber, A. Estrada, J. C. Bicca-Marques, E. Heymann and K. B. Strier. 2008. Springer. 447pp. ISBN: 978-0387787046. The focus of each chapter is to examine the nature and range of primate responses to changes in their ecological and social environments, and to use data on South American monkeys to address critical theoretical questions in the study of primate behavior, ecology, and conservation. Contents: 1. Advancing the study of south American primates — P. A. Garber & A. Estrada; 2. The diversity of the new world primates (Platyrrhini), an annotated taxonomy — A. B. Rylands & R. A. Mittermeier; 3. Paleogeography of the South Atlantic: a route for primates and rodents into the new world? — F. B. de Oliveira, E. C. Molina and G. Marroig; 4. Platyrrhine ecophylogenetics in space and time — A. L. Rosenberger, M. F. Tejedor, S. B. Cooke and S. Pekar

Spider Monkeys: The Biology, Behavior and Ecology of the Genus Ateles, edited by Christina J. Campbell. 2008. Cambridge University Press. 352pp. ISBN: 978-0521867504. Spider monkeys are traditionally very difficult to study in the wild, but there has been an expansion in research being carried out on this genus in the past decade. This book is an assimilation of both published and previously unpublished research on spider monkeys, it is a comprehensive source of information for academic researchers and graduate students interested in primatology, evolutionary anthropology and behavioral ecology and covers topics such as taxonomy, diet, sexuality and reproduction, and conservation.

The Biology of Traditions: Models and Evidence, edited by D. M. Fragaszy and S. Perry. Cambridge University Press. 476pp. ISBN: 978-0521087308. This book explores socially-maintained behavioral traditions in animals other than humans. Uniquely, it treats traditions as biological phenomena amenable to comparative evaluation in the same way as other biological phenomena. It is also concerned with how widely shared features of social life and learning abilities can lead to traditions in many species. It differs from other books in its emphasis on explicit evaluation of alternative theories and methods, and in the breadth of species covered. It will be essential reading for students and researchers in behaviour, anthropology and psychology. Contents: 1. Towards a biology of traditions — D. M. Fragaszy and S. Perry; 2. What the models say about social learning — K. N. Laland and J. R. Kendal; 3. Relative brain size and the distribution of innovation and social learning across the nonhuman primates — S. M. Reader; 4. Social learning about food in birds — L. Lefebvre & J. Bouchard; 5. The cue reliability approach to social transmission: designing tests for adaptive traditions — G. Dewar; 6. Traditional foraging behaviors of brown and black rats — B. G. Galef Jr.; 7. Food for thought. Social learning about food feeding capuchin monkeys — E. Visalberghi and E. Addessi; 8. Traditions in mammalian and avian vocal communication — V. M. Janik and P. J. B. Slater; 9. Like mother, like calf: the ontogeny of foraging traditions in wild Indian Ocean bottlenose dolphins — J. Mann and B. Sageant; 10. Biological and ecological foundations of primate behavioral tradition — M.A. Huffman & S. Hirata; 11. Local traditions in orangutans and chimpanzees: social learning and social tolerance — C. P. Van Schaik; 12. Developmental perspectives on great ape traditions — A. E. Russon; 13. Do brown capuchins socially learn foraging skills? — S. Boinski, R. P. Quatrone, K. Sughrue, L. Selvaggi, M. Henry, C. M. Stickler and L. M. Rose; 14. Traditions inn wild white-faced capuchin monkeys — S. Perry, M. Panger, L. M. Rose, M. Baker, J. Gros-Louis, K. Jack, K. C. Mackinnon, J. Manson, L. Fedigan and K. Pyle; 15. Conclusions and research agendas — S. Perry.
