EvAnth 235L

Prerequisites:  EvAnth 101 / 101D.  A survey of the anatomical diversity of living and fossil primates.  This course consists of both lecture and laboratory sessions.  The approach is systemic rather than taxonomic -- the functional anatomy and evolution of various organ systems is presented with reference to locomotor and positional behavior, diet, reproduction, and social behavior.  Each system is interpreted from the perspective of growth and adaptation.  Special attention is given to anatomical systems that have left a fossil record.  Laboratory study of human and non-human anatomy, primarily from prosected specimens and anatomical models.
