Savanna Monkeys: The Genus Chlorocebus

Trudy Turner, Cambridge University Press, 2019

Savanna monkeys, also known as vervet monkeys, live in a broad range of environments throughout Southern Africa and the Caribbean. Their wide variety of habitats can lead to significant interactions with humans. Turner, a professor of anthropology, researches vervets primarily to better understand the complex relationship between humans and nonhuman primates. In this comprehensive book, Turner and her colleagues examine how savanna monkeys have genetically, behaviorally, physically and hormonally adapted to different climates and habitats.
