From the reviews:

"Gould and Sauther provide a broad update on a variety of lemurs … . Gould and Sauther’s volume is organized into 4 sections. … I appreciated that most chapters go beyond social behavior and ecology to integrate a wide range of phylogenetic, physiological and morphological data to the question of lemur adaptations. … are excellent resources as overviews and introductions to their topics. Persons who work on any lemur taxon will want to own Lemurs, Ecology and Adaptation … ." (Leanne T. Nash, International Journal of Primatology, Vol. 28, 2007)

"Lemurs: Ecology and Adaptation, edited by Lisa Gould and Michelle Sauther, represents a compilation of 20 chapters by 29 contributors who have conducted field work in Madagascar. … The book is divided into four sections covering lemur origins and ecology, the evolution of lemur traits, ecology and adaptation, and lemur adaptations to changing environments. … I heartily recommend this up-to-date volume to any professional behavioral ecologist or graduate student interested in the primates of Madagascar." (Diane K. Brockman, Journal of Mammalian Evolution, Vol. 15, 2008)

"Lemurs: Ecology and Adaptation sets out to provide a single source of information from a wealth of lemur research collected during the last fifteen years. … Serious lemur researchers will find this book to be a useful and informative resource, whilst students will find it to be a good introduction to – and overview of – lemur studies." (Kara Moses, Primate Eye, February, 2009)
