Dr Colin Groves received his PhD in 1966. He has held fixed-term appointments in the University of California and in Cambridge University before migrating to Australia to take up a post in the A.N.U., Department of Archaeology & Anthropology (formerly Prehistory & Anthropology) where he is now Professor, Biological Anthropology.

"The author of the landmark Primate Taxonomy, Colin Groves is formally known as a Professor of Biological Anthropology at the Australian National University, but he has been acknowledged as 'the senior statesman, philosopher, and historian of primatology.' With his new book Extended Family, Colin Groves has created a work which is both unique to its field and an essential prerequisite — a compact history of the Western world's gradually deepening awareness of the primate order."
