Autorenporträt
Alison Jolly was the first scientist to study ringtailed lemurs in the wild, beginning in 1963. She continues her research on their troops in Berenty Reserve, working with many colleagues and students. Robert Sussman began the survey of ringtails throughout Wesern Madagascar in 1970, and in 1979 co-founded Beza Mahafaly Reserve of the School of Agronomy, University of Antananarivo. He has also continued research with generations of western and Malagasy students since then. Naoki Koyama heads the Kyoto University study group on ringtail behavior at Berenty, 1989 to the present. Hantanirina Rasamimanana of the École Normale Supérieur, University of Antananarivo, first worked at Berenty in 1983, and continues research there with the ENS students. In short, the four editors head all the major ringtail research groups, and have united with their colleagues and students to write this volume.
Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"I can point ... this book as the perfect place to get 'cool stuff' on ringtailed lemurs. ... this book is a must-have and instant classic for any existing or budding researchers with an interest in ringtailed lemurs. The data will be of interest to anyone conducting meta-analysis studies of primate diets. ... the book will find its way onto the bookshelves of many professional primatologists and mammologists. I also think that the book will be of interest to amateur naturalists and students ... ." (Shawn M. Lehman, Journal of Mammalian Evolution, Vol. 15, 2008)
