Primates

The two suborders of primates that are recognized today are Strepsirrhini (lemurs and lorises) and Haplorrhini (tarsiers, monkeys, apes, and humans). The taxonomy of primates is an issue that is not resolved and has undergone many revisions over the years. Our Primates category attempts to deal with questions about primate species and subspecies described prior to and since the latest revisions.

How did primates evolve?

Shortly after the death of the dinosaurs, mammals began to grow and diversify. Mammals came to dominate the earth and occupied many ecological niches. Some mammals took to the trees, and these became the primates. Primates are well adapted for arboreal living. Their opposable thumbs help them to easily climb trees and they have good color vision for detecting ripe and tasty fruit. They are also among the most intelligent and social animals. Primates diversified into many different kinds, and one group came down from the trees to eventually become humans.
