ENVIRON 362 - Primate Evolutionary Ecology
Section: 001
Term: WN 2019
Subject: Program in the Environment (ENVIRON)
Department: SNE Program in the Environment
Requirements & Distribution:
Advisory Prerequisites:
An introductory course on primates, ecology, or conservation biology is advised. No quantitative or statistical training is required.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course examines the ecology of primates within an evolutionary framework. We consider how environmental factors and ecological processes have shaped the anatomy, physiology, and behavior of individuals, the distributions and demographic characteristics of primate populations, and the interspecific interactions that occur within the ecological communities in which primates live. Topics in primate and rainforest conservation biology, such as indirect interactions between organisms, population viability analysis, and nature reserve design and management, will also be discussed. Lectures will cover theoretical concepts in individual, population, and community ecology, illustrate these with primate and other vertebrate examples, and critique empirical studies of primate ecology. Labs will emphasize developing an appreciation for ecological research and inquiry through field exercises involving data collection, analysis, and write-up; computer activities involving simple simulations and the exploration and analysis of existing datasets; critical assessment of primary ecological literature; and discussion of both theoretical and applied topics in primate conservation.
