Anthropology 130 Research Simulation 3 Studying Primate Traits and Behavior


 

Instructions
The best way to understand environing primates is to see them in resuscitation. In this assignment, you
achieve be gratuitous the role of primatologist: observing primate bearing and documenting
your experiment. The effect achieve be a consideration of your studys and two paragraphs

Part One
Choose a primate subsist exit or prerecorded video from the subjoined inventory. This
assignment compositions best delay a subsist exit elapsed the footage of the primate is not edited
to honorable the violentlights. This simulates what a examinationer would see tending the voluptuous
in the savage or at a zoo. Subsist exits are theme to haphazard factors important accessibility,
so video clips are delecconsideration as courteous. You can too do this assignment at the San Diego
Zoo, Safari Park, or other assign delay primates to remark. Use a photo to enjoyness that you
were there!

Anthropology is opposed from other sciences in that studys are attentive not from
controlled experiments, but from fieldcomposition (or as cork as you can get delay a serf
primate). Observations such as yours conduce to what we distinguish environing primates today,
which too admit us to fashion hypotheses environing what elapsed primates were enjoy. If you scantiness
