Course Description

This course is designed to give students a basic introduction to primate behavior by exploring various aspects of behavior: social structure, communication, affiliative interactions, conflict and aggression, dominance, parenting styles, and mating styles. Students will learn what it is like to be a primate living in a social group from a variety of different non-human primate species’ perspectives. In addition, students will also learn how to think about how an animal’s sex and age influence their social role. In addition to the lecture, students MUST register for a Laboratory/Discussion section.
