LAB 2: EXERCISE NAME_____KEY__________________ ANT301 Summer 2007 Lab Section ___________________ LAB TWO EXERCISE: PRIMATE TAXONOMY In this lab we will learn about various primate groups and primate features. Some features characterize all primates. Additionally different primate groups are characterized by features that distinguish them from other groups of primates. It will be important for you to understand the distinction between primitive and derived traits. The lab is presented in two parts: begin by answering the questions in Part I drawing from the reading for this week. Follow with Part II by examining specimens from different primate groups to determine their taxonomic affiliation. PART I: List five derived traits characteristic of the Primate Order: 1. Grasping hands and feet 2. Opposable big toe 3. nails instead of claws 4.
