Socio-Ecology of Malayan Forest Primates
In the preceding chapters we have described the Malay Peninsula and its forests (against a background of previous primate field studies) and the natural history of the three kinds of diurnal primate found there — gibbons, leaf monkeys (or langurs) and macaques. Then we have analysed various features of primate socio-ecology — niche differentiation, positional behaviour and habitat use, long-term changes in behaviour in relation to the environment and competition with other arboreal animals.
