What are you doing between 15 and 23 June? Dr. Natalie Vasey has one space open in the Primatology Field Methods course held each year at LCF. Dr. Vasey teaches at Portland State University and conducts research in Madagascar. You can earn college credit and get hands on field experience in our conservation habitats.
‘This course will introduce students to methods used for collecting behavioral and ecological data on free-ranging primates through a combination of lectures and field exercises. These will include development of ethograms, sampling methods, recording rules, mapping sites and animal movements, and estimating resource availability. By the end of this course students will be able to assess whether their interests lie in gaining further advanced training in primatology, such as graduate training or a field or lab assistantship with a senior scientist.’
