In our first class we will go over the basics of primatology: which critter lives where, and who’s related to whom. In our second class, we’ll discuss primate anatomy and physiology. In our third meeting, we will discuss fascinating behavioral traits shared by most primates. In our fourth meeting, we will discuss possible paths to becoming a...
Students will be able to tell a primate from a non-primate by an animal’s morphology (looks) and behavioral traits. Learners will also find out the path they’ll need to follow to become a professional primatologist in the field, a zoo, or another setting.
Dr. Orlando has taught college-level introductory primatology classes at UCLA and a number of other colleges since 2007.
Homework 1: show where some primate species live on a world map Homework 2: list 5 physiological traits that all primates share Homework 3: list 5 behavioral traits that most primates share
Here is a link to a printable world map that you'll need after the first class meeting: https://www.waterproofpaper.com/printable-maps/world.shtml
