Description

This class will review the social systems and behavior of our closest living relatives, the primates. The course will be divided into three parts. I will begin by outlining questions about primate behavior. In this section the Order Primates will be introduced by examining the biology and behavior of lemurs, lorises, tarsiers, monkeys, and apes. Second, several aspects of primate social systems including spacing, mating and grouping patterns will be discussed. The course will conclude by reviewing selected topics of primate behavior, including social relationships, vocal communication, and cognition. I will draw heavily on field studies of primates and emphasize their behavior in natural environmental and social settings.

Course Requirements:

Grading will be a mix of synchronous participation in discussion sections, two papers, and several take-home exams. Students should have access to a camera and microphone.

Class Format:

The weekly lectures for this course will be on-line and synchronous to allow for immediate student questions and feedback. All lectures will be recorded for students to watch at a later time, if this works better for them. The weekly discussion sections will require synchronous on-line participation. This course will use Canvas for all asynchronous online components. Optional synchronous meetings with the instructor will be conducted through Zoom.
