Amanda Rees accomplishes what she sets out to do with meticulous care and insight. For those of us who have lived through the infanticide controversy, and for those who wish to learn the history of primatology, this book lays out what happened with well-judged.

    Leadership changes accompanied by infanticide are described for two langur troops at Abu, Rajasthan. These events are compared with similar reports from Dharwar and Jodhpur. In each of seven cases, infanticide occurred when males entered the troop from outside it. Females whose infants were killed subsequently exhibited estrous behavior and copulated with the new leader.

Gray langur (Semnopithecus), also called Hanuman langur is a genus of Old World monkeys native to the Indian subcontinent. Traditionally only one species Semnopithecus entellus was recognized, but since aboutadditional species have been recognized.

The taxonomy has been in flux, but currently eight species are recognized. Gray langurs are fairly terrestrial, inhabiting forest, open. Gray langurs are seen at the Jaigarh Fort in Jaipur, India.

But when Hrdy started her career in the s, not only did men rule the roost, the accepted wisdom was that human evolution had been shaped largely by male behavior.

Males were the ones under. The Langurs of Abu (; new paperback edition ) “The Langurs of Abu: Female and Male Strategies of Reproduction is one of the first attempts to apply sociobiological theory to the behavior and social structure of wild primates.” —James Loy, Science “Seldom in a field report have new facts, information from the literature, and theory been so well integrated, the data so lucidly.

Sarah Hrdy (née Blaffer; born J ) is an American anthropologist and primatologist who has made major contributions to evolutionary psychology and is considered "a highly recognized pioneer in modernizing our understanding of the evolutionary basis of female behavior in both nonhuman and human primates".

Abstract. Considerable disagreement characterizes the debate concerning frequency, causation, and function of infanticide in connection with adult male replacements in bisexual one-male troops of hanuman langurs (Presbytis entellus).Detailed observations are presented about two noninfanticidal and three infanticidal male changes including six eye-witness and five presumed cases of infanticide.Child Abuse and Neglect is the third volume sponsored by the Social Science Research Council.

The goals of these volumes include the development of a biosocial perspective and its application to the interface between biological and social phenomena in order to .research on langurs are chronicled in her forthcoming book, The Langurs of Abu: Male and Female Strategies of Reproduction (Har vard Univ.

Press). Currently she is doing re search on monogamous primates. Dr. Hrdy wishes to acknowledge her debt to the community of langur fieldworkers, most especially to P. (Jay) Dolhinow, S. M. Mohnot.
