Ethnoprimatology: Assessing how the interface between humans and monkeys influences infectious agent transmission

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    In this chapter, I provide an overview of ethnoprimatological approaches as a theoretical and methodological context with the potential to create an opening for One Health to more fully engage with anthropological and primatological complexities at the interface of humans and monkeys. I present overviews of the human-macaque interface at two sites, Padangtegal, Bali, Indonesia and Gibraltar, UK, where the contrasting local cultural contexts and ecological patterns of interaction between humans and macaques demonstrate the importance of an ethnoprimatological and niche-constructive perspective when attempting to assess pathogen risk and management for human-macaque interactions.
