She is currently writing a book on human imitation learning, and co-editing volumes on selectionist epistemology and the evolution of cognition. Dr Heyes is a member of the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour, and was for nine years an Associate. Non-human primate communication is thought to be fundamentally different from human speech, mainly due to vast differences in vocal control. The lack of these abilities in non-human primates is especially striking if compared to some marine mammals and bird species, which has generated somewhat of an evolutionary conundrum. What are the biological roots and underlying evolutionary Cited by:

Beyond the Blame Game
The battle of the sexes can be explained at its deepest level, writes Meredith Small, as a war of different mating strategies. In her intriguing and provocative book about females and sex, Small concentrates on primates - the prosimians, monkeys, and apes, whose ancestry we share - to show how females have evolved to be highly sexual by: “Our efforts to protect primates will be much more effective if we dismantle the artificial line that we have created between ourselves and other animals.” ― Lisa Kemmerer, Primate People: Saving Nonhuman Primates through Education, Advocacy, and Sanctuary.
A primate is a member of the biological order Primates (Latin: "prime, first rank"), the group that contains lemurs, the Aye-aye, lorids, galagos, tarsiers, monkeys, and apes, with the last category including humans.
With the exception of humans, who now inhabit every continent on Earth, most primates live in tropical or subtropical regions of the Americas, Africa and Asia.

[email protected] by: Choice behavior in humans has motivated a large body of research with a focus on whether decisions can be considered to be rational.
In general, humans prefer having choice, as do a number of other species that have been tested, even though having increased choice does not necessarily yield a positive outcome. Humans have been found to choose an option more often only Cited by: 1. Purchase Behavior of Nonhuman Primates - 1st Edition.

YEARBOOK OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY () Female Choice in Nonhuman Primates MEREDITH F. SMALL Department of Anthropology, Cornell University, Zthaca, New York KEY WORDS Sexual selection, Female mating strategies ABSTRACT As outlined by Darwin, sexual selection is composed of two parts, within-sex competition for mates, and mate choice.
Inthe University of Chicago Press published Primate Societies, the standard reference in the field of primate behavior for an entire generation of students and in the twenty-five years since its publication, new theories and research techniques for studying the Primate order have been developed, debated, and tested, forcing scientists to revise their understanding of our /5(12).
Nonhuman primates have a rich history of contributing to significant medical advances such as the polio vaccine, organ transplantation, blood transfusions, and surgical procedures to treat debilitating neurological symptoms like tremors and stiffness.
Nonhuman primates are currently vital to the quest for treatments for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, prostate cancer, coronary heart disease. Some nonhuman primates use body posture to indicate receptivity. Females of many other species simply move in front of a male and present their rumps as a solicitation for mating.
Around the time of ovulation, the rump of a female primate may change color, produce a fluid-filled swelling, or emit odors, any of which signal males in the vicinity. 1 (B virus) while working with non-human primates, Elizabeth Griffin’s family established The Elizabeth R.

Nonhuman primates (NHP), on the other hand, share significant genetic homology as well as physiological and behavioral characteristics with humans. As such, NHP models offer a unique opportunity to carry out mechanistic studies in a species that closely mimics human biology but yet can be maintained under tight laboratory by:
