Anthony DiFiore: Primate Social Behavior

Fri, April 4, 2014 • 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM • Welch Hall Auditorium

Schedule: Friday, April 4, 2014
5:45-7pm: Pre-lecture Fair 
7-8:15pm: Lecture

Humans have long been fascinated with their evolutionary cousins in the primate world, monkeys. Dr. Anthony Di Fiore studies several species of monkeys in Amazonian Ecuador, and how the ecology of the area shapes their behavior and the societies in which they live. There are several different ways of studying primates, and these differ depending on species and ecological habitat. Methods include traditional observational studies as well as the modern use of technological equipment and techniques in molecular genetics. Through these methods, we have discovered remarkable things about the social behavior of our primate cousins, and how they may be both strikingly similar to, and vastly different from, humans.
