This text provides a detailed account of a predator-prey relationship involving two primates, documents a six-year investigation into how the risk of predation molds primate society. It explores how predation by wild chimpanzees - in the Gombe National Park - has influenced the b...ehaviour, ecology, and demography of a population of red colobus monkeys.
