Type LECTURE
Course Description Prerequisites: Open to undergraduates who have had V1010, V1011 or the equivalent. Other students who are interested should speak with the instructor. This course focuses on our closest relatives, the extant apes of Africa and Asia. We will explore the nature and extent of the morphological, genetic, and behavioral variability within and among these forms. Using this framework, we will then analyze questions of systematics and trace the evolutionary development of the hominiods during the Miocene, the epoch that saw the last common ancestor of today's gibbons, orang utans, gorillas, chimpanzees and humans. Maximum enrollment 25. [Usually taught every other year.] Timing note: The course meets for 2 hours twice a week. [Mon/Wed 4:10-6:00.] Films are screened during the last 30 minute of each class and students must be able to stay for the entire time if they want to take the class.
