This is the first book dedicated in its entirety to current primatological studies in Argentina.
After more than 40 years of continuous work, we have put together a volume that represents most of the research groups studying Argentinian wild and captive primates. We have also included a summary of the primatological research in Argentina from its beginning until the present.
This book appears within social and academic contexts related to the establishment and expansion of the Asociación de Primatología Argentina (APrimA) as well as the Sociedad Latinoamericana de Primatología (SLAPRIM), and in parallel with similar volumes edited in Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Colombia, and Venezuela.
We hope that this volume will serve to engage students in this discipline, and will provide valuable information in order to build a National Plan for Primate Conservation in Argentina, and consequently, preserve the habitats of our cousins, the non-human primates.
