Clara B. Jones, Ph.D. has studied spiders, fish, monkeys, and humans, including work in the field, in zoological gardens, and in the laboratory.

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "The behavioral flexibility of primates is widely appreciated, but it is rare to find a book like this one, which treats the topic with the analytical attention it deserves. Clara Jones draws heavily on examples ... to illustrate why considers the ability to respond to changing conditions to be one of the signature traits of primates. ... Behavioral Flexibility in Primates is a slim volume whose 138 pages of text are supplemented with a helpful glossary of technical terms and references ... ." (Karen B. Strier, International Journal of Primatology, Vol. 27 (2), April, 2006)
