CA 300 - Tropical Ecology and Conservation


The original impetus for the course is to provide students with an opportunity to conduct hands-on, observation-based ecological research in the field. By being a part of the field workshop, students will be able to directly apply theories and concepts encountered in the classroom. Thus, the course consists of a ten day effort in the field to investigate student developed projects on an island within a marine protected area. Students will develop projects based on information gained from reading the primary literature, as well as from the management plan of the marine protected area. Students will implement their research projects in the field, collect and analyze data, and present their results to the Truman community. In addition, the independent research that students conduct will assist the local NGO with the management and preservation of the local fauna in line with their mission.
