Reviews

The readable text records their efforts to treat the great apes in the field as they encounter poachers, meet with loss of habitat, and face their newest threat: human diseases that can cross species lines. . . . The whole is accompanied by striking, full-color photographs and includes a list of other resources, a postscript, and an index."
