BAA 143, Primate Ecology Midterm Study Guide, Fall 2007 Midterm exam format Your midterm exam will be given on Wednesday, Oct. 24. The exam will largely be taken from my lectures. The readings are designed to support and supplement my lectures, and can be used to clarify topics you do not understand and to provide specific examples of topics covered in lecture. However, I will not pull something out of the readings that I did not already cover in my lectures. The exam will consist of any combination of multiple choice, matching, short answer, and short essay. You will have approximately one hour to complete the exam. If you arrive late, you will not be able to sit for the exam and you will receive a zero, so please plan accordingly. If you have an approved disability, please see me no later than the Monday before the exam. I would wish you luck, but you don’t need it – you just need to study. What the midterm exam will cover: Lectures – Aug 31 through (and including) Oct. 19. Also, be familiar with what you did in the tree survey lab – how you made a transect, how you measured trees, how you used that information to calculate density and basal area, what is basal area and how it differs from density, etc. Readings – Strier pp. 1-98; 179-204; 348-353 Pianka, Evolutionary Ecology , pp. 1-15 (on e-reserve) Richard, Primates in Nature , pp. 16-39 (on e-reserve) Richard, Primates in Nature , pp. 44-65 Kelley and Sussman, Genealogy of American field primatologists Sussman, History of Primate Field Studies White and Edwards, chapter 9 (botanical surveys) – sections pertaining to our lab (e.g. tree density and basal area) Lambert, Primate Nutrional Ecology Chapman and Russo, Primate Seed Dispersal Videos – Jungles – know the lab questions Life of Mammals
