Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Examine the physical morphology, geographic distributions, and evolutionary histories of lemurs and lorises. (UG/G)
- Compare/contrast the ecological and social aspects of lemur and loris species and examine how ecology, sociality, and behavior are interrelated. (UG/G)
- Organize and summarize the current research on the biology, behavior, ecology, and evolution of lemurs and lorises. (UG/G)
- Evaluate the conservation status of endangered lemurs and lorises. (UG/G)
