7529WHAT DO PRIMATOLOGISTS DO?WHAT DO PRIMATOLOGISTS DO?1997color52 minvhs (Primate series) Primatologist Anne Zeller looks at the range of ways primates can be studied using slides and video taken at Camp Leakey in Kalimantan, Borneo. This particular research station is where Bivute Galdikas has been conducting research in orangutans for over 25 years. The purpose of this title, and of the series, is to give a comparative view of a number of different primate species living under various conditions in captivity and in the wild. Having the opportunity to actually see animals moving in their natural habitats brings home the importance of specialization in loco-motor systems. Watching the animals interact with each other emphasizes the subtlety of facial communication, and the importance of kinesthetic movement.
