"This book is the result of an international effort, and it provides an in-depth review of the common marmoset including numerous excellent illustrations, particularly in the anatomy and neuroanatomy sections. ...This book will be an invaluable reference for colony managers, veterinarians, behaviorists, and investigators involved in the care, propagation, and research application of common marmosets. Moreover, the value of this book extends beyond the biomedical research community because its contents cover the broad topic of the natural history of common marmosets, which will be of interest to the zoological and conservation communities as well." --Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association


The first authoritative and comprehensive treatment of marmosets in biomedical research as part of the ACLAM Series
