page numbered, 1-inch margins, free from spelling/ grammatical errors, sources properly cited, include a

your species is geographically found (in the wild), how your species was discovered, the significance of
your species name(s) (both scientific and common name), is your species an ape or monkey, and if so,

include anything else your found interesting or relevant./

Conclusion: describe how the concepts you learned in class and the textbook concerning the study of
primates enabled you to gain a better understanding of your non-human primate. Discuss what research
is currently being done to better understand the species/conservation. Discuss current research and
news on your species. You may also provide your opinion on your non-human primate. Do not quote
