books on Primate Societies for general biology project

Postby wildfunguy » Sat Feb 18, 2012 5:07 am

In my general biology course, I have to give a presentation on primate societies. I admit I haven't looked at any books yet, but I want to start getting suggetions sooner rather than later. It's a general biology course at a public university. But don't take my current college as an indication of a lack of study power; I'm just figuring out what direction I want to go in. However, I think I only have 10 to 12 days to do this, or maybe it's less.

My presentation is during the ecology unit, although we already went over the microbiology unit, and I loved the microbiology stuff. Something that incorporates some microbiology with ecology would be cool. I chose the topic primate societies because it interests me.
In addition, I think it would be fun to present information on Bonobo behavior. :wink:

As I look at books online, I will update you on what I'm looking at.

My bad. I have 10 to 12 days before the class presentation. I have 29 days before the essay submission.

Does anybody know if the 3rd edition of the book Primate Behavioral Ecology, 4th Edition has a different title? I can't find it on Amazon. I figured I could get a used copy of an old edition for cheap, then use it for terms I don't understand or specific topics I want to learn more about.

I'm also thinking about getting the book Primate Societies: Group Techniques of Ecological Adaptation by Hans Kummer. It's only 160 pages, so maybe I could speed-read it and take more notes on the parts I want to remember.
