Primatologists go cultural - New issue of Ecological and Environmental Anthropology
The second issue of the peer reviewed Open Access journal Ecological and Environmental Anthropology is quite unusual. The papers have titles like
"The Importance of Integrative Anthropology: A Preliminary Investigation Employing Primatological and Cultural Anthropological Data Collection Methods in Assessing Human-Monkey Co-existence in Bali, Indonesia"
The new issue even includes two videos!
Concerning their interdisciplinary approach, the editors explain:
In this issue, we highlight interdisciplinary work from primatologists who combine cultural anthropology and primatology approaches to gain unique perspectives about the species that they study. From the discovery of a new species in Tanzania, to cultural primate symbolism and subsistence in Amazonia, and to the interactions of rural communities with local populations of monkeys in Bali and Sulawesi, Indonesia, ethnoprimatologists in our second issue demonstrate the value of interdisciplinary methods for primate conservation on three continents.
