MONKEYS by Herbert Zim


Email this review


Another introductory science book by the prolific Dr. Zim covers the subject of monkeys in the adequate and quietly humorous way we expect from the author. Monkeys as primates are discussed first and their special characteristics are brought out. Then special types of Old World and New World monkeys gives a sampling of the many extant varieties, and final passages on their use in scientific experiments and as pets, relates them more closely to human experience.
