Description of Spider Monkeys Behavior, Ecology and Evolution of the Genus Ateles


The chapters that are included in this volume represent the first-ever compilation of such a diversity of papers about spider monkeys and I thank each of the authors for their contribution and their patience during the editorial process. I would also like to thank Colin Groves, Agustin Fuentes, Manuel Lizarralde and Alan Dixson for their useful reviews and comments. Dominic Lewis and Alison Evans at Cambridge have provided assistance in the publication of this volume and I thank them for their help. Lastly, but definitely not least, I would like to thank my family, Tom and Summer Wake for their patience and continued support throughout this process.
