*University of Calgary, Department of Anthropology
PROGRAM NAME AND DESCRIPTION: M.A. in Anthropology. The Department awards an M.A. in Anthropology for primatology studies (in addition to more traditional anthropological fields). The orientation is towards behavioral and behavioral ecological approaches, but work in primate anatomy and in palaeoprimatology is also acceptable. The program is nominally of two years duration and requires completion of coursework (3 full course equivalents / 6 term credits), a formal research proposal defense, research (which is normally in the form of field work), and the preparation and defense of a thesis. Students in the department have conducted field research on howler monkeys, captive gorillas, captive bonobos, and Japanese macaques. Special relationships exist with the South Texas Primate Observatory (Arashiyama "A" troop). A Ph.D. program is in preparation, and Special Ph.D. applications will be considered by the Dean of Graduate Studies.
FACULTY AND THEIR SPECIALTIES: Pamela J. Asquith (Japanese primatology, cultural effects on science); Usher Fleising (sociobiology, methodology, ecology); Mary McDonald Pavelka (behavior, social dynamics, Japanese macaques); James D. Paterson (behavioral ecology, thermobiology, allometry and bioenergetics, postural studies, evolutionary and taxonomic theory, computers, methodology and data acquisition).

*Universities of Edinburgh, St Andrews and Stirling
PROGRAM NAME AND DESCRIPTION: Scottish Primate Research Group. Increasing collaboration over recent years has led to the formation of this research group with a core membership of fieldworkers from the 3 universities. Each institution provides funds for regular attendance at joint research meetings. Field studies are carried out at several African sites, especially in Gabon, Kenya, and Rwanda.
FACULTY AND THEIR SPECIALTIES: Elizabeth Rogers (Zoology, Edinburgh: Feeding ecology of African apes); Richard Byrne (Psychology, St Andrews: Cognition in primates, manual skill and laterality, forag ing behavior); Andrew Whiten (Psychology, St Andrews: Developmental behavioral ecology, social learning, cognition).
