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 primate 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 toward the preservation and conservation of their nonhuman relatives.
