African Primates Query #7

Nov 04, 2009 - 20:48 - Tanya Dewey

Query used in Pamela Rasmussen’s Michigan State University summer study course in Uganda, 2008 (Zoology 490, Overseas Study in Zoology, upper division students). This query asks students to consider “How do communities of African primates partition resources to minimize competition? Are there differences in habitat use, activity period, diet, body size?”

This query is appropriate for upper division evolution, ecology, zoology, mammalogy, or primatology courses. Or it can be modified to be used in other advanced zoology, evolution, or taxon-specific courses.
