It's the semi-annual Leakey Lecture!!!
(The lecture will be held in one of the lecture halls accessible through the west entrance in the parking lot by Lake Shore Drive. You do not need to pay admission to attend the lecture.)

Humans from different regions differ anatomically and physiologically, as do monkeys. Why?

We find more monkey species and human cultures in the tropics than outside the tropics. Why?

California had many more Native American cultures than did Illinois – can what we know of monkeys tell us why?

If distant islands are more difficult to get to, why do we not find fewer monkey species or human cultures on more distant islands?

Are humans merely monkeys?
