Primate Poster Project

I don’t know how to handle this Science question and need guidance.

A Digital poster, sized 36″ x 48″ , submitted as a PDF

What is a research poster? It is a research project distilled and translated into minimal text and helpful imagery including graphs, tables, and photos. The goal is to visually display your findings, while providing adequate text (complete with in text citations and works cited) to establish context and background. Please write in complete sentences using the same style you would for any research paper. Please don’t use bullet points.

You will use either a google slide or a power point slide to create this poster. Your work must fit on to ONE SLIDE ONLY.

Poster Requirements

  • This poster has 5 Required Sections
  1. Taxonomy (6 points): Describe how your chosen primate fits in to the primate family tree. List its closest relatives, and outline which suborder, parvorder, family, genus, and species it belongs to. It might be helpful to find and include a phylogenetic tree
  2. Habitat & Ecology (6 points): Where does your primate live? Include both geography and ecology. Describe the type of habitat this primate lives in. Who are this primates primary predators and what threats does it face in terms of human hunting, deforestation, poaching, etc.
  3. Diet (6 points): What foods does this primate rely on for survival and how do they acquire them? What special adaptations do they demonstrate with regard to foraging behavior (tool use, anatomical traits, behavioral traits, etc)
  4. Behavior (7 points): What mating system does this primate have? What type of group does it live in, or is it a solitary primate? Is it nocturnal or diurnal? Choose 2-3 unique behaviors associated with this primate and describe them. For example, do they use tools? Has their communication been studied? Are males especially involved with parenting?
  5. Graphs, photographs, and charts (10 points): Please use 1 graph ( your own or one that you can explain from another source), 1 table (your own), and 3-4 photographs or other diagrams to visually support your findings. The best posters balance words and images.

6. In-text citations and a works cited section (5 points):

For in-text citations, include (Author, year) at the end of each sentence that involves information from a particular source. To organize your works cited section, use one of these guides: (Links to an external site.)
