BIOL 553 - Neotropical Environment
  This course is taught over four weeks in January at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama. Students study tropical ecology and species richness through field trips. These excursions develop an understanding of the challenges of sampling and measuring biodiversity in species rich areas. Ecological theory and methodology is revisited in view of tropical conditions. The course also documents the conservation status of ecosystems, communities and species in Panama. It ends with a workshop on indigenous knowledge.
