An intensive course about tropical ecology and neotropical environments taught in South America, this course will build knowledge of and appreciation for the diversity of tropical organisms and physical environments as well as their interactions. Students will obtain firsthand experience with the tropics and with doing experiments in the field. Each day there will be a combination of lectures and field exercises. The students will gather and analyze data about biological, physical, and environmental issues that are covered in the lectures. The habitats that we explore will be both terrestrial and shallow freshwater. Furthermore, we will travel to Kaiture Falls and other habitats to gain experience with the spectacular environmental and biological features that Guyana offers. Time scheduling: The course will be intensive and will be taught principally during 14 days of the spring break.
