  • The first book to synthesise and integrate the previously disparate areas of primate socioecology, parasite functional categories, host defences, and theoretical models of disease spread.
  • Organizes hypotheses according to parasite traits such as transmission mode, host specificity and virulence.
  • Develops a new co-evolutionary framework for investigating parasites and primate social evolution at empirical and theoretical scales.
  • Ideal graduate seminar course material.
