Primate Assignment

 

This Primate Assignment asks you to gather appropriate information from at least three (3) reputable sources and write a cohesive short report on your chosen topic.

 

1)    Choose your favorite non-human primate species for this short research report.  Your choice must be a specific primate species (like Microcebus berthae or Papio ursinus), not a general group term like “lemur” or “monkey”, or a taxonomic classification like “Haplorrhine” or “Ape”.

 

2)    Identify your chosen non-human primate species by its scientific name (genus and species) and its common name in English.  Where (in the world) do they live?  What do they eat?  How do they get their food?  How big are they as adults (males and females)?   Comment on sexual dimorphism (if any).  What is the size of the average group?

 

3)    Discuss the ecology of your chosen non-human primate:  the relationship between this particular species and their relationships with each other (social strategies) and with the surrounding environment.  How active they are in general?  What is their primary social group structure and reproductive strategy?  What dangers do they face (predators, for example, each other, maybe?).

 

4)    Finish your report with a brief discussion about the current prospects for continuity of this species in its natural habitat.
