520    This volume provides insight into gibbon diet and 
       community ecology, the mating system and reproduction, and
       conservation biology, all topics which represent areas of 
       substantial progress in understanding socio-ecological 
       flexibility and conservation needs of the hylobatid 
       family. This work analyzes hylobatid evolution by 
       synthesizing recent and ongoing studies of molecular 
       phylogeny, morphology, and cognition in a framework of 
       gibbon and siamang evolution. With its clearly different 
       perspective, this book is written to be read, referenced, 
       and added to the bookshelves of scientists, librarians, 
       and the interested public.
