Essential Books for Primate Keepers
Essential Books For Primate Keepers
Primates are popular. They are the species that many novice and trainee keepers aspire to work with. As they have also been used in the laboratory there is much more written on the care and husbandry than many zoo animals. Primate keepers then are lucky, because the information is out there.
There are any number of Primate Books to choose from and making the choice over the internet is so much easier. The problem lies in the time needed to do this and sorting out the wheat from the chaff.
I have worked in the zoo industry for over forty years now and during that time have been both an avid reader and book collector. The choice you see below are books I would choose. Those I would suggest reading.
I have not read them all but I have had the opportunity to pick and browse. You can order any of these books simply by clicking on the links below.
I have tried to make the suggested reading as broad as possible but I nearly re-named this the twenty essential books.
