Beschreibung

Over thirty years ago, Dian Fossey established the Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda to study the behavior and ecology of mountain gorillas. Some of the offspring of the gorillas first studied by Fossey are still being observed today and the long-term observations on known individuals, from birth to death, and data on social behavior within and among the groups have led to an understanding of many aspects of gorilla social structure. Written by scientists who have worked at Karisoke over the years, this book highlights and summarizes what we have learned about the behavior, ecology, and conservation of the genus Gorilla and two other recognized subspecies and provides some comparisons with other gorilla populations elsewhere in Africa.

Pressestimmen

'... a polished compendium that pays tribute to years of dedicated behavioural, ecological and conservation research in the face of tremendous adversity.' Kathryn Jeffery, Biologist 'I highly recommend this book ... It brings together a great deal of knowledge about the mountain gorillas of Karisoke as well as up-to-date information from other study sites and subspecies ... fascinating reading for anyone interested in gorillas, behavioural ecology and conservation in general.' Primate Eye '[a] comprehensive and current collection of information about mountain gorillas. ... a valuable resource, both as a complete summary of work to date, and also as a starting point for future research and conservation of this endangered Great Ape.' Ethnology '... a solid and easily accessible summary of the work at Karisoke over the past decades ... I already look forward to a follow-up volume.' Carel P. van Schaik, International Journal of Primatology
