23:54 Thursday Feb. 17th Lecture 1 of Exam 2 Material Primate Ecology/More Ecological Consideration (film: Web of the Spider monkey) True of False? Forces of natural selection are optimizing the animals; not truly in a  directional fashion. -True (differential survival rates, infant mortality rates, etc.) Where is the distribution of primates primarily in? primarily in the equatorial zone (based on where the green is on a map) day length doesn’t change much throughout the year (always about 12 hours of daylight) What percent are in Rainforest areas? 80% Some primates do go somewhat north and south of the Equator, about how far in  degrees are they generally seen? 20 degrees N/S- most primates live within 20 degrees north and south of the equator Are there limits primates cannot exceed? why? yes, the cold and the altitude can be environments too difficult for survival What four primates have wide distributions?

Baboons Squirrel Monkeys/ squirrel monkey Rhesus Macaques owl monkeys Why do these primates have wide distributions? they are highly adaptable and successful What three primates discussed have narrow distributions? and where are they found? Cotton-top tamarin (northern colombia)-once bottle-necked Uakari (Banks of Amazon) Golden Lion tamarin (SE Brazil) only about 400 left In general what are the common habitats of primates? rain forests deciduous seasonal forests --> temperate woodland Montane Forest (higher altitude) Grassland Savannah (Woodland mosaic-desert) Where is the only place the Uakari found?

banks of Amazon Due to the influences of habitat on behavior, primates that live in a habitat of Deciduous  Seasonal Forests-->temperate woodlands will have what kind of reproductive  characteristic? more likely to be seasonal breeders-(influences of habitat on behavior) What kind of climate is found in the Montane Forests (higher altitude)? and which  primates discussed can be found in this habitat? It is cold and rainy
