Primate Sexuality: Comparative Studies of the Prosimians, Monkeys, Apes, and Humans

Alan F. Dixson


This book provides an authoritative and comprehensive synthesis of current research on the evolution and physiological control of sexual behaviour in the primates — prosimians, monkeys, apes, and human beings. This new edition has been fully updated and greatly expanded throughout to incorporate a decade of new research findings. It maintains the depth and scientific rigour of the first edition, and includes a new chapter on human sexuality, written from a comparative perspective.

Keywords: primate evolution, primate sexual behaviour, prosimians, monkeys, apes, human beings, human sexuality
