  • Descripción o resumen: Primate locomotion has typically been studied from two points of view. Laboratory-based researchers have focused on aspects like biomechanics and energetics, whereas field-based researchers have focused on (locomotor) behaviour and ecology. Primate Locomotion: Linking Field and Laboratory Research brings together both aspects of primate locomotion studies. Communication between both groups is necessary to identify the specific needs and start up achievable and successful research projects in the field. This volume brings together biomechanists, ecologists, and field-based researchers, who combine both disciplines, and whose contributions facilitate lasting cooperation between the mentioned disciplines and stimulate innovative research in Primatology. The book will be valuable for primatologists, paleo-anthropologists, biomechanists and field biologists, as well as students.
