African Primates Query #8

Nov 04, 2009 - 20:49 - 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). In this query students test for the effect on lifespan of several natural history features: body size, degree of sociality, and activity pattern (diurnal or nocturnal).

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