This course is an exposition of the living primates from an evolutionary behavioral ecological perspective. It covers extant primate systematics, feeding ecology, life history, reproductive strategies, social structure, and conservation. It is also an introduction to evolutionary theory and behavioral ecology more broadly. This course will be one of my primary offerings as a starting assistant professor. I taught this course as instructor of record at Columbia University in the Spring of 2018, under the mentorship of Marina Cords. The course content fits easily in either Anthropology or Ecology and Evolutionary Biology departments.
