      An adaptive radiation occurs when a single or small group of ancestral species rapidly diversifies into a large number of descendant species. Among factors that can trigger an adaptive radiation, ecological opportunity is probably foremost. An ecological opportunity occurs when a small number of individuals of a species are suddenly presented with an abundance of exploitable resources.

Book Review: A Primate Radiation: Evolutionary Biology of the African Guenons. Book Description: The New World primates have radiated widely in tropical America, evolving a variety of adaptations to cope with different ways of life.

This comparative survey examines many species. Some are highly specialized in unique ways; others have paralleled the lemurs of Madagascar or the monkeys and apes of Africa and Asia.

He is interested in the adaptive radiation of primates during the last 50 million years. He has conducted paleobiological research in Egypt, Argentina, and Ethiopia and has studied living primates in Malaysia, Surinam, Brazil and Madagascar.5/5(1).

Adaptive Radiation in Primates. The rapid increase and spread of an evolving group of organisms which diversify and adapt to new niches os adaptive radiation. The formation of many new species following the availability of new environments or the development of new adaptation is called adaptive radiation.

New World Primates: Adaptive Radiation and the Evolution of Social Behavior, Languages, and Intelligence by: Moynihan, Martin This book examines several species with emphasis on natural history, behavior & ecology.

The manuscript examines investigative behavior, as well as maintenance of behavior in nonhuman primates by investigatable rewards and determinants of investigative behavior. The publication also evaluates the radiation syndrome and field studies. The selection is a dependable reference for readers interested in the behavior of nonhuman primates.
