Summary
"In this book, Colin Groves proposes a complete taxonomy of living primates, reviewing the history and practice of their classification and providing an up-to-date synthesis of recent molecular and phylogenetic research. He contends that the taxonomy of living species is critical to understanding evolutionary relationships, and that the taxonomic designation of individual species is the starting point for conservation."--Jacket
