Primate Sexuality


A comparative and integrative study of primate sex and reproduction. The material is presented in three sections: the first focuses on primate social organization, mating systems, and reproductive strategies; the second focuses on the endocrine system and behavioral endocrinology, and; the third focuses on sexual differentiation of morphology, brain and behavior. In each section, this course places human sexuality within the broader context of the primate order. Note: course is the same as Evolutionary Anthropology 341 but with an additional required 50 minute discussion. Recommended prerequisite: Evolutionary Anthropology 101D or Biology 202L or 203L.
