Tropical Ecology

Tropical Ecology
Tropical regions possess the majority of the planet's biota. In this course we will explore the diversity, natural history, and ecology of organisms in the New World tropics (mostly Costa Rica) and Old World tropics (mostly South Africa). Students will explore the details of the ecology of plants and animals in these areas as well as the many explanations for the high species diversity in these areas. This course will prepare students for a semester of study in Costa Rica or South Africa through the Organization for Tropical Studies, should they decide to attend. (BIOL 0140). 3 hrs lect/disc
