Colombia is a one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world: although it takes up slightly less than one percent of the Earth's surface, it is home to approximately ten percent of the world's plants and animals, with a rich variety of flora and fauna and a diversity of primate species that is only superseded by Brazil and Peru in number. This vibrantly illustrated field guide is the result of a wealth of field work conducted on Colombian primates both in and out of the country.

The volume illustrates and describes twenty-eight primate species comprising forty-three taxa, of which fifteen taxa are only found in Colombia. The field guide also includes comprehensive chapters on primate classification, fossil history, and conservation, and each is augmented by a wealth of finely detailed drawings, photographs, and maps. Primates of Colombia will be an invaluable resource for primatologists and naturalists alike.
