We examine the extant species in the primate order, our closest living relatives, from evolutionary and ecological perspectives to better understand humankind and the evolution of human characteristics such as bipedality, large brains, concealed ovulation, and extensive culture. Diverse anatomy and social behaviors of non-human primates such as foraging strategies, mating systems, sexual dimorphism, intelligence, and communication are addressed.
