Description: In this long-awaited book, Stuart A. Altmann presents the results of one of the most intensive investigations ever carried out on foraging behavior and its consequences for survival and reproduction. Basing his study on field observations of eleven yearling baboons, Altmann includes detailed data on what types of food and how much each baboon ate, as well as chemical analyses of these foods to identify differences in nutrient intake. He then statistically compares these actual data with ideal figures determined by a general model of optimal diets.

Perhaps the most striking result of Altmann's study is that the baboons' subsequent survival and reproductive success could be accurately predicted from what they had eaten as yearlings. Those that had energy intakes closest to the optimum and protein intakes furthest above their requirements were most likely to survive to adulthood and to successfully produce offspring.

The result of decades of research, Foraging for Survival will be an essential reference for primatologists, behavioral ecologists, mammalogists, and nutritionists.
