Assignment Overview


This Second Assignment asks you to gather appropriate information from at least three (3) reputable sources and write a cohesive short report on your choice of a living, non-human primate species.  Your detailed and original report will demonstrate your understanding of the physical and social adaptations of your chosen species.


  1. Your first paragraph must identify your chosen non-human primate by its scientific name (genus and species), its common name and the location of primary wild population(s) in the world.  Explain briefly why you chose this particular species.  Your first paragraph must end with a thesis statement that encapsulates your plan to provide information about this species.


  1. IMPORTANT:  This assignment is about a specific species of living, non-human primate.
    1. DO NOT write about a general group term like lemur, monkey or ape.
    2. Make sure that the species you chose to write about is a non-human PRIMATE.


  1. Present and analyze the current scientific research regarding this topic.


  1. Your paper must end with a clear and concise conclusion that recaps your presentation and restates your thesis.



So … how do I do this?


  1. Identify your chosen non-human primate species by its scientific name (genus and species) and its common name in English. Where (in the world) do they live?  What do they look like?  Is there sexual dimorphism in this species?  What is the size of the average group?  Are they diurnal or are they nocturnal?


  1. Discuss the ecology of your chosen non-human primate. This section should be the largest section in your report.


  1. What is the environment in which these creatures live in the wild? What do they eat?  How do they get their food?  How active are these primates in relation to the types of food that they eat?  What is the average size of the group?  What dangers do they face (predators, for example, each other, maybe?).


  1. What are the behavioral relationships between each other in this particular species (social strategies)? What is their primary social group structure?  Who “leads” the group?  Are their dominance hierarchies in this primate species?  How many offspring do the females generally have at one time?  How long to offspring stay with their birth group?  Is the group female philopatric or is it male philopatric, or do all offspring leave their birth group at or around sexual maturity?

  1.

Grading Rubric

This assignment is worth 20 points:  15 points for content and 5 points for correctly written source page.  I am looking for a well written, original and concise report on a specific topic, as well as a properly constructed reference page that contains all sources of information used in this report.


  • Excellent work (score 18-20):  Demonstrates thorough understanding of the topic through specific, detailed discussion.  Analysis addresses all aspects of the assignment prompt.  Conclusion is comprehensive and concise.
  • Good work (score 16-17):  Demonstrates moderate understanding of the topic through discussion, but lacks sufficient detail.  Analysis addresses aspects of the assignment prompt, but is skewed towards the student’s point of view (did not analyze the topics, just answered the questions).  Conclusion is adequate but not thorough.
  • Adequate work (score 14-15):  Demonstrates some understanding of the topic but lacks sufficient discussion and details.  Analysis lacks details and/or insufficient understanding of research information.  Able to draw generic conclusion or missing conclusion.
  • Inadequate work (score 12-13):  Demonstrates some understanding of the topic, but little effort was made to complete this assignment.  Opinion outweighs analysis, little demonstration of having learned anything about the topic.
  • Not acceptable work (score 11 or below):  Did not understand the assignment.
  • Plagiarized work or no assignment submitted:  score of “0”
