Emphasizes the biodiversity and plant/animal interactions found in tropical ecosystems of the world, examining evolutionary processes that account for this remarkable diversity through reading and discussion of the research literature. A field trip to the neotropics constitutes the laboratory portion of the course and includes student projects, which are designed ahead of time and then summarized and reported on after the trip has taken place. No pre-requisites, but one introductoray level course is strongly recommended. (Group II Natural Science)
