S4582: Non-human Primates: Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation in Splash Spring 2022 (Apr. 16, 2022)
Did you know that, according to some taxonomic classifications, there are more than 400 non-human primate species across the globe? From the huge eastern lowland gorillas to the tiny Pygmy mouse lemurs, primates are incredibly diverse and even more fascinating. In this course, we will explore the general trends of primate behavior and ecology, think critically about strategies for primate conservation, and do our own mini research projects on case studies of different primate species. Please note: although it will not be discussed or described in detail, this class will have mentions of reproduction because it is often central in how primate social groups are organized.
