Behavior Changes in Old vs. New World Monkeys in Response to Anthropogenic Climate Change
Clara Dell
This study aims to assess the primary ways in which monkeys of South America and Central Africa have changed their behaviors in response to anthropogenic climate change. As a systematic literature review, all published research will be reviewed to identify answers to the research question. As South America and Central Africa are both expected to experience droughts and high temperatures, monkeys are expected to show changes in diet, range, and time budgets. This research question is rooted in discovering the ways that wildlife must alter their behaviors due to human action around the world.
