    Comments
    In this course we will describe the life cycles of various primate species, the biological and social problems they face (e.g., growing up within a complex social group, finding food, mates, a place to live, and protection from predators, etc.), and the solutions to these problems. We will examine the ways scientists have extracted general principles of behavior from the data, particularly those that are concerned with evolutionary processes. Methods of research used in the field will be emphasized, although laboratory studies will also be discussed where they enhance understanding of the data from the field. In addition, issues of particular interest to human social evolution will be discussed; for example, language studies with apes, cooperative hunting and tool-making.
