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.

Here is advice on creating a successful research poster: https://guides.nyu.edu/posters (Links to an external site.)
- This poster must include at least 4 sources, 2 of which must be peer reviewed journal articles. What is a peer reviewed journal article? Visit this website: https://www.angelo.edu/services/library/handouts/peerrev.php. (Links to an external site.)Where can you find peer reviewed journal articles? Google scholar, and the De Anza library databases available here are the best places to start: https://www.deanza.edu/library/articledata.html (Links to an external site.) . Additional sources can include books, reputable newspaper sources such as the New York Times, university websites (for example, https://lemur.duke.edu/ (Links to an external site.)) and documentaries like those available in the library. Do not cite wikipedia. Instead, visit the wikipedia page for your primate, look through the citations at the bottom, and visit one of those sources to see if you can use it.
- This poster must include Harvard style in-text citations, as well as a works cited section. If you run out of space for your works cited section, you may send it to me in a separate document. For guidance on using Harvard-style citations, look here: https://www.mendeley.com/guides/harvard-citation-guide (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.)
- This poster has 5 Required Sections
- 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
- 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.
- 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)
- 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?
- 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: https://www.mendeley.com/guides/harvard-citation-guide (Links to an external site.)
