The CPRC monkey colonies, and the proper demographic information at the derived skeletal assortment within the Center’s Laboratory of Primate Morphology and Genetics (LPMG), offer infrequent possibilities for morphological, developmental, sensible, genetic, and behavioral experiences around the existence span of rhesus macaques as a species, and as a primate version for people. The booklet grows out of a symposium Wang is organizing for the 78th annual assembly of the yank organization of actual Anthropologists to be held in April 2009.

Following an preliminary ancient evaluation of CPRC and its examine actions, this e-book will emphasize fresh and present researches on progress, functionality, genetics, pathology, getting older, and behaviour, and the influence of those researches on our realizing of rhesus and human morphology, improvement, genetics, and behaviour. Fourteen researchers will current contemporary and present experiences on morphology, genetics, and behaviour, with relevance to primate and human development, health and wellbeing, and evolution. The booklet will contain not just papers provided within the symposium, but additionally papers from people who couldn't current their paintings on the assembly because of obstacles within the greatest quantity (14) of accepted speakers.
