Orangutans: Their Evolution, Behavior, & Future
Gisela Kaplan & Lesley J. Rogers. Orangutans (OT) are among our closest relatives & behave remarkably like us. Here, two experts explore these fascinating similarities, & paint a compassionate picture of these intelligent primates. They describe how OT learn from each other, mother their young, & communicate, offering fresh insight into OTsí emotions. The book is also a moving treatise describing the perilous future of these magnificent forest dwellers. It reveals the devastating effects on the habitat of OT -- who live only on the islands of Sumatra & Borneo -- of recent fires, droughts, & widespread floods, & the issue of saving the rainforests, a battleground where biologists & environmentalists fight industry & agriculture to preserve a sensitive ecosystem. B&W photos.
