Bernstein. Macaques are a highly diverse genus of Old World monkeys. The genus comprises 22 species, which are distributed over the largest range of all nonhuman primates. Macaques have adapted to various environmental conditions, and the inter- and intraspecific variations in morphology, physiology, reproductive biology, ecology, behavior, and genetics are extensive, indicating a long and complex evolutionary.

The book also addresses morphology, population genetics, recent habitat change, and conflicts with humans, and attests to the plasticity and complex adaptive system of macaque societies. The valuable information in this volume is recommended reading for researchers in primatology, anthropology, zoology, animal behavior, and conservation biology.
