      But even before DNA analyses, scientists knew humans belong in the primate order. Carl Linnaeus classified humans with monkeys, apes and other primates in Author: Erin Wayman.   Primate, in zoology, any mammal of the group that includes the lemurs, lorises, tarsiers, monkeys, apes, and humans. The order Primates, with its or more species, is the third most diverse order of mammals, after rodents (Rodentia) and bats (Chiroptera). Many .

Changes in taxonomy lead to changes in policy, and Primate taxonomy book without doubt will be the most important effect of Groves' new book. An additional very useful contribution is that the book highlights and summarizes the flood of new primate taxa discovered during fieldwork in the tropics in recent years/5(2).

In this book, Colin Groves proposes a complete taxonomy of living primates, reviewing the history and practice of their classification and providing an up-to-date synthesis of recent molecular and phylogenetic research.

He contends that the taxonomic designation of individual species is the starting point for conservation, and that the taxonomy of living species is critical to Primate taxonomy book. In this book, Colin Groves proposes a complete taxonomy of living primates, reviewing the history and practice of their classification and providing an up-to-date /5.

Taxonomy is the study of the principles and practice of classification, and is commonly used as a synonym for systematics, although the latter is, in principle, broader, covering all aspects of relationships among organisms. The basis of taxonomy is the taxon (plural taxa). Primate Anatomy is unlike ay other work on primates: it systematically reviews the biology of all living primates, including humans.

It describes their bio-geographical information and provides crucial data pertaining to their body size, fur coloration external distinguishing. Taxonomy has a well-defined role, which is much more than simply stamp-collecting and pigeon-holing.

Species are the units of classification, biogeography and conservation; as such they must be defined as objectively as possible. The biological species concept, still widely used in biology, though predominantly by non-taxonomists and all too often misunderstood, is a process-based concept Cited by: The taxonomy of the Primate Order is likely to be modified over the next few years as a result of the discovery of new species and the use of DNA sequencing data.

At present, there are differences of opinion as to the placement of some species. Several of these differences are referred to. Groves s monumental book is the most comprehensive view of primate taxonomy published in decades recognizing that primates are a much more diverse group than previously recognized Given that understanding taxonomic relationships among primates is essential to assessing their conservation status, he provides us with a very useful /5(3).
