How Do Scientists Study Primate Ecology and Behavior?

Erin Kane | The Arch and Anth Podcast

2019-11-13

Today, Dr. Erin Kane (Boston University) talks about her previous and current work studying primate behavior, ecology and biology. Why is primatology an important field of research within biological anthropology? How do Erin and her colleagues design their studies to be flexible enough, especially given the unpredictability of field primatology? Do research questions and conditions differ depending on the species of primate under study (for example, orangutans versus Diana monkeys)? What kinds of observational or hormonal data will be useful for understanding primate ecology and diet? You can find more information in the show notes under the episode on our website.
