Comments
From the tropical jungles of Uganda to the snowy mountains of Japan primates have diverse adaptions to help them survive in the wild. In this class we will discuss primate diversity, sociality, cognition, feeding ecology, and conservation. As we learn about our primate relatives, we will also see just how unique humans are among primates. This course meets the Problem-Oriented/Theoretical requirement. Note: This course does not automatically populate in HUB as a problem-oriented/theoretical course. Please email the Undergraduate Coordinator to request the course be used to fulfill this requirement.
