Anthropology | The Primates
B466 | 27732 | Hunt
Fleagle's Primate Adaptation and Evolution is an upperclass/graduate
level seminar meant for advanced bioanthropology undergraduate majors
and graduates with a research interest in primate behavior and
ecology. In this class we will work our way through John Fleagle's
"tour de force" Primate Adaptation and Evolution over the semester.
Among the issues Fleagle addresses are the evolution of primate
feeding strategies, primate functional anatomy, the evolutionary and
ecological bases of sociality, evolution of territoriality and primate
phylogeny are covered in the text. Familiarity with primate taxonomy,
socioecology and evolutionary theory will be helpful. Anthropology
B368/568 is a prerequisite. Grades will be awarded on the basis of
discussion, attendance and an exam.
