Malagasy Primates Query #2

Nov 11, 2009 - 13:51 - Tanya Dewey

Queries used in Pamela Rasmussen's Michigan State University summer studies course in Madagascar, 2008 (Zoology 490, Overseas Study in Zoology, upper division students). With instructions for students to ask "What is the expected relationship between diet and activity period (nocturnality vs. diurnality) in most animals? Is there a reason to expect this will differ in Malagasy primates?"

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.
