Animals employ a staggering diversity of sounds, gestures, and chemicals to communicate. This course examines the four primary signal systems–vocal, visual, chemical, and tactile–used by primates and the various ecological, social, and physiological factors that relate to their evolution. Using current research, historical perspectives, and hands-on lab exercises, students will explore the central issues of animal communication as they relate to primates.
