A Pictorial Guide to Non-Human Primates of India Forwarded by great primatologist Dr. Jane Godwall this is acolourful pictorial guide for Indian Primates, which conciselydescribes all the 15 species occurring in India including theirdistribution, habit, habitat, morphology, sexual dimorphism,natural diet, endemicity, interspecific variation, population,conservation status and threat to survival. Other chapter includesgeneral description on natural history of Primates. Classifiedunder the same Natural Order as man, non-human primates, whichinclude apes, monkeys, lemurs and langurs, have always excited mansinterest. We human often fail to correlate the naturalness weinherit from our ancestors and hardly look at primates as ourfellow members of the same biological fraternity. However in India,we have the traditional practices of sacrificing these poorcreatures for various purposes and at the same time worshippingthem as incarnation of "God".
