Recent progress in the field of wildlife disease ecology demonstrates that infectious disease plays a crucial role in the lives of wild animals. Parasites and pathogens should be especially important for social animals in which high contact among individuals increases the potential for disease spread. This book explores the correlates of disease risk in primates, including not only social and mating behaviour but also diet, habitat use, life history, geography and phylogeny. The authors examine how a core set of host and parasite traits influence patterns of parasitism at three levels of biological organization: among individuals, among populations, and across species.

Chapters in the volume focus on issues of taxonomy, biogeography and evolution, reproduction and fertility, mating systems, demography and life history traits, genetics and kinship, cognition, feeding adaptations, predation, rainforest ecology, the affects of forest fragmentation on ecosystem health and disease, the impact of human hunting on mammalian communities, and competing pressures for land use between the local human population and the remaining.

Additional chapters consider how knowledge of infectious diseases in wild primates can inform efforts focused on primate conservation and human health. More generally, this book identifies infectious disease as an important frontier in our understanding of primate behaviour and ecology.

Series: Oxford Series in Ecology and Evolution (OSEE). By: Charles Nunn and Sonia Altizer. This innovative book provides a comprehensive synthesis of the emerging and topical field of disease ecology. Publisher: Oxford University Press. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it to those with a passion for diseases or primates. Raina K. Plowright, TRENDS in Ecology and Evolution (2006).

Infectious Diseases in Primates. Behavior, Ecology and Evolution. Charles Nunn and Sonia Altizer. Oxford Series in Ecology and Evolution. 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.
