Ethology and cognition of primates

What is the purpose of studying the behavior of primates? The great apes are our closest cousins and provide the clearest information on the evolution of our species. Comparative research between humans and other primates allows us to understand how specific human traits, such as language and culture, came about. The speaker will illustrate this fundamental point with some studies conducted both in their African field stations and in their cognition laboratory at Basel Zoo.
