Summary
Primates are remarkably adaptable animals that have gone through multiple radiations across a wide range of habitats. Habitats found at high altitudes provide particular challenges for resident primate populations. Landscapes at high altitudes tend to be less productive than neighboring areas at lower elevations, and also present changes in the structure of flora and fauna, species diversity, and density. Although some of the most unique and unexpected solutions to problems of survival are found in high altitude primates, these populations are often understudied. This volume compiles the most up-to-date research on how a variety of primates (prosimians, monkeys, apes, and even humans) respond to conditions at higher altitudes
