ANT 3170 - Primate Adaptation and Evolution



Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ANT 1010 or permission of instructor

Description: This course addresses adaptation in the Order Primates. It includes a discussion of the primary forces of evolution and a detailed examination of how one of these forces, natural selection, has shaped the anatomy of living and fossil primate species. Students assess the diagnostic anatomical features of living and fossil primate groups and learn how to use these features to predict diet, locomotion, and social structure. Students also examine the evolutionary relationships of living primates and assess how fossil primates contribute to our understanding of these relationships.
