Abstract : Although we intuitively refer to a -standard eating be havior- it is never as clear-cut for most prosimians and other primate species. Feeding behavior is a selective response to stimulation, but no overall explanation for the spe ific food choices of c losely related species has ever been proposed. Hypotheses are presented as the conclusion of this chapter; however, to formulate a clear definitions of diets, we must refer to qualitative as well as quantitative data. The methods used tests and different types of observations yield different types of information, the value of which are discussed.
