Derived from a best seller, "The Fossil Record of Primate Evolution" has been expanded with a focus on primate phylogeny. This updated edition will include information on living primates as a context for discussing the fossils. Special attention will be paid to the molecular classifications of organisms. With copious illustrations, the delineation of primate evolutionary history is logical and consistent. This title is uniquely adapted for scholars looking for a core text in this area. It is revised to focus on primate evolution and brings together the very latest information that is available. It features ample tables and illustrations that complement the text. Helpful ancillary materials include a comprehensive glossary and a classification chart of order primates.

Review quote

Praise for the original edition:
"This book will be welcomed with a sigh of relief in departments of anatomy and biological anthropology world-wide. Here at last is an up-to-date, comprehensive and reliable textbook for courses in primate and human evolution....It will, and should, stand as a major teaching resource for primate evolution for some years to come. It is an excellent text and a reflection of Fleagle's major contributions to our field."
