ANT367H5S - Sister Species: Lessons from the chimpanzee (SCI)

Starts in July 2022

Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives. In this course we will examine chimpanzee behavior, ecology, morphology, physiology, language, intelligence, and genetics. Through lectures, labs, films and writing assignments we will get an intimate look at every aspect of chimpanzee biology and behavior. Among questions asked will be:

  • Why do animals use or not use tools?
  • Why are animals aggressive?
  • How does physiology influence what chimpanzees can eat and what's healthy to eat?
  • Can chimpanzees use language?
  • Do chimpanzees use medicine?
  • Just how different are chimpanzee bones, muscles, and brains from our own?

Throughout the class we will turn to use chimpanzees as a model to better understand ourselves and our place in nature.
