Colobine Monkeys: Their . a valuable book that belongs on every primatologist's shelf. Craig B. Stanford, American Journal of Primatology. Colobine monkeys have a unique digestive system, analagous to that of ruminants, which allows them to exploit foliage as a food source.

The colobine monkeys of Africa and Asia have a digestive system unique among primates. This system analogous to that of ruminants, allows them to exploit foliage and seeds as food, and opens niches that are closed to other mammals. This book provides this synthesis, setting it within the context of colobine evolutionary history, anatomy and physiology.

Colobine monkeys have a unique digestive system that allows them to exploit foliage as a food source. This gives them a niche in Old World forests where they are often the only abundant medium-sized arboreal folivorous mammal. From a possible Miocene origin, colobine monkeys have radiated into a wide variety of forms inhabiting a range of tropical woodlands in Africa and Asia. The central theme of this work is adaptive radiation, showing how the special features of colobine anatomy interacted with a range of ecosystems to produce the distinctive species of today. Most of the extant species have been subject to long-term field studies, but until this book, no synthesis of work on this group has been available. The book discusses parallels with other mammalian groups.
