About the book

Human activities make it inevitable that many of the world’s primate populations and their habitats have disappeared. Therefore, the main goal of the scientists and conservationists working in the Primate Specialist Group is to maintain the current diversity, effective habitat conservation, survival of endangered species and to provide effective protection for large numbers of primate diversity and abundance. If primate populations are to survive in the long term and for such program to work effectively, the people living in the areas where primates occur must support conservation efforts.
With these open statements, it is clear that there is a need for a comprehensive research book on the primates which deals with current climate change and consequent effect on the conservation of primates. Primates and other forms of wild species (avi-fauna, reptiles and others) are known to be good indicators of environment condition. Primates are the species most likely to be re-used in experiments and, unfortunately, trade in species such as chimpanzee, baboon and other monkeys have increased greatly in recent years. Their endocrines, behaviour, social structure, evolution, food and feeding habits, nervous system, communication effort and reproductive physiology are similar to those of man which makes these animals valuable in testing drugs and other form of uses.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Kardum Cvitan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
