ANT 154A- The Evolution of Primate Behavior

ANT 154A- The Evolution of Primate Behavior

This course focuses on understanding why primates are so variable in how they live, from moving around alone or in pairs to living in large cohesive groups. We take a socioecological approach, which means we will investigate the ecological determinants of primate social organizations from a comparative perspective.
