The Twenty Best Web Logs for Primatologists

For those of you wishing to follow in the footsteps of Dian Fossey or Jane Goodall and to study our nearest living relatives – the apes and monkeys, here is a heads up on the top blogs to be found on the subject of all things primatology, as provided by the E-advisor blog.  Everything Dinosaur provides information on blogs for primatologists.

Blogs for Primatologists

This particular article states that one of the fascinating things about primatology — the study of primates, for those who’ve forgotten their suffixes — is that it can be applied to so many professional fields, from biology and zoology to more far-reaching areas like anthropology and psychology.  Studying these animals means examining our close relatives and learning what makes them, us, and the world itself tick. 

Highlighting College Courses

The article highlights a number of college courses in the field that cover everything from animal behaviour to the languages of apes, and from the study of habitats to the exploration of human-primate interaction.

The blogs rounded up by the article team, perhaps the collective noun should be a “troop” of blogs given the nature of their specialism, are among the best in the field, especially for students looking to get a better understanding of all primatology has to offer.

As the article writers at E-advisor say, the blogs provide insights and updates on research, plus monkey pictures!  Pictures of apes and their extinct relatives are provided too.
