This is an advanced undergraduate/graduate course examining the ecology and behavior of non-human primates. Using mainly primary research articles, we will explore several themes in primate behavioral ecology including reproductive strategies, sexual selection, behavioral endocrinology, cooperation and conflict, cultural transmission, and primate cognition. The objectives of this class are:

  1. to provide an overview to some of the exciting research areas in primate behavior and
  2. to help bring advanced undergraduates up to graduate level in their reading, understanding, and writing about primate-related topics.

Emphasis will be placed on critical thinking and clear and concise writing.
