This chapter discusses current understanding of primate phylogeny. It argues that a cladistic approach based on genetics, supplemented by morphological and behavioral data, offers unique promise for organizing relationships among living primates, as well as their pattern of descent from a common ancestor. Understanding evolutionary relationships within the Order Primates is a key starting point for the comparative study of primate behavior and neurobiology.

Keywords:   Order Primates, taxonomy, cladistic approach, taxa, primate phylogeny
