Abstract

This special issue contains 8 papers and 3 commentaries on the association between understanding nonhuman primate behaviour and providing for nonhuman primate welfare. The topics of the papers include: welfare of apes in captive environments; social housing for nonhuman primates in the research laboratory setting; enhancing nonhuman primate care and welfare through the use of positive reinforcement training; control, choice and assessments of the value of behavioural management to nonhuman primates in captivity; enrichment in primate centres; application of animal welfare science to nonhuman primates in sanctuaries; animal welfare in zoos and the role of behavioural research in the conservation of chimpanzees and gorillas. The three commentaries are panel discussions on applied behaviour and primatology.
