Jasmine Khaleel Assignment 1 Non-human primates In order to better understand the human past, it becomes helpful and necessary to study non-human primates. Looking at certain stages in evolution of the Miocene apes allows for some speculation over human past. Also, modern non-human primates can be beneficial in better understanding the human culture and what it means to adapt. It becomes so helpful to study non-human primates when considering the human past because it adds more to the entirety of what is considered the deep human past. Humans and modern apes differed from the apes of the Miocene period while bearing some similarities. For instance, both modern apes and Miocene apes had a large variability in size. However, there are several differences. The number of species of Miocene apes greatly outnumbers the amount of species of modern apes today. Also, the diet of the modern apes and humans is much more varied than that of the Miocene apes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
