An Introduction to Primate Conservation

Several recommendations are made for how future research activity could make meaningful contributions to primate conservation. The chapter discusses how additional field studies are needed to fill gaps in our taxonomic and geographic knowledge, encourages behavioural research with conservation applications, and advocates additional investigation of primates inhabiting marginal habitats and living outside protected areas. It also describes how climate change research could be expanded and made more sophisticated, and discusses the conservation benefits of work that assesses and publicizes the economic value of ecosystem services provided by primates. Conservation prioritization is discussed, and it is noted that primatologists could provide expertise that informs the efficient allocation of conservation funds. Finally, the chapter discusses how primate conservation might be improved through greater embracement of interdisciplinarity, more widespread appreciation of applied research, and increased engagement outside academia.
