Primate Behavior: The Real Monkey Business
BIOL 145 SP
This course will examine the full spectrum of the primate order. How has evolution shaped these different primate species and what are the underlying mechanisms that have fueled their development. We will discuss
ancestry, primate environments, and primate competition; all factors that mediate primate behavior. In addition, we will take the lessons learned from primate studies to determine how might humans use this knowledge
the preservation and conservation of their nonhuman relatives.
There will be a textbook for the course as well as selected papers on non-human primates.
