This cutting-edge publication on how shape is defined in primate biology, and its effects for functionality and behaviour, contains contributions via the world over popular researchers of quantitative primate evolutionary morphology. each one bankruptcy elaborates upon the research of the form-function-behavior triad. The ebook is exclusive, for that reason, not just within the variety of the themes mentioned, yet within the diversity of degrees of organic association addressed--from mobile morphometrics to the evolution of primate ecology.

Discussion The analyses presented here were carried out with the aim of providing data on the extent to which differences in facial form within (dimorphism) and between these colobines might be accounted for by patterning and growth differences occurring pre- and postnatally. In particular they have focused on the influence of allometry in generating observed differences between adults, and allow these differences to be placed in the context of the generally accepted view that red (Piliocolobus badius) and olive (Procolobus verus) colobus are more closely related to each other than either is to the black and white colobus (Colobus guereza).
