Tuition will be given in the following areas: satellite tracking and radio-telemetry of diurnal and nocturnal primates, habitat and phenology sampling, methods in behavioural observation, primate census methods, GPS, and primate endo-parasites analysis. In the first week, lectures will be given that introduce concepts in primate behaviour and ecology, current topics in primate research (with special focus on primate behaviour), and a range of research methods. At the end of the first week, the students will develop their own research projects and apply one of the taught methods to collect their own data. At the end of the course, the students will give a mini-presentation about their project. In addition, the students will learn how to propose a research idea. You may be able to arrange independent study or dissertation credit from your university.
