Seasonal variability in food abundance affects what primates eat, how they search for food, how and when they are active, and as a consequence, their body size, social life and reproductive timing. This book examines how seasonality might have also affected human evolution particularly in the transition to the savannah.Review of the hardback: 'In this well structured and detailed book Brockman and Schaik discuss the major role that seasonality plays in influencing the ecology and behaviour of primate species ? I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an existing interest in primatology or evolutionary anthropology ? All in all it offers an interesting and thought-provoking read.' Hannah E. Parathian, University of Oxford
