discussion board primate features
What defines primates as a taxonomic order is a list of physical features that are the result of a recent common ancestry. For this week’s webquest we looked at the hand adaptations that define primates. For this discussion board I would like you to further explore the primate adaptations that are not found on the hands.
For this discussion board I would like you to share your favorite primate adaptation with the rest of the class. Tell us why you think that adaptation is great and briefly tell us how primate life would be different without that trait.
Also, your chosen features does not have to be at at the level of taxonomic order. For example, you can talk about hominoidea which are at the superfamily level and discuss the absence of a tail.
In addition, feel free to share your thoughts in an open ended but informed way! For your contribution you will receive points.
