People & Primates

Thursday, December 12, 2019 | 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Dorothy A. Nelson, Ph.D., Professor of Anthropology, Oakland University

Our closest relatives in the animal world belong to the order Primates. This order of mammals includes monkeys, apes and people, as well as the prosimians. The presentation will provide
an overview of the order Primates, with more detail about selected primates’ behavior and ecology. The study of primates provides a window into some of our human behaviors. You may
begin to see yourself in the ring-tailed lemurs, macaques, gorillas and chimpanzees when you visit the zoo!
