Living Links

This video has been made by as a resource for students to practice designing an ethogram for use in a study of primate behaviour. Accompanying notes, and further resources can be found at http://www.living-links.org

Note, this is not a complete record of capuchin behaviours - far from it! This video shows a selected few behaviours and variations of them that will demonstrate the importance of defining and coding behaviours carefully before a study.

If you use this video for a class it would make us very happy! Please tell us by leaving a comment or sending a message. Especially if you are a teacher or lecturer!

The monkeys are in the Living Links to Human Evolution Research Centre in Edinburgh Zoo.

The ‘Living Links to Human Evolution’ Research Centre is a field station of the University of St Andrews, established in partnership with the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and Edinburgh Zoo. It has large outside and inside enclosures in which capuchin monkeys and squirrel monkeys live together.

‘Living Links’ was created through a generous grant from the Strategic Research Development Scheme of the Universities’ Scottish Funding Council, and is designed to support studies by scientists at the Universities of St Andrews, Stirling, Edinburgh and Abertay, who together form the Scottish Primate Research Group (SPRG).

Living Links Films between 2009-2012 were created by Dr. Mark Bowler

    After trying to piece together field videos from my own collection, I stumbled across this and can now introduce my students to the collection of field data with ease! A fantastic resource, thank you!
