See firsthand the inspiration for Darwin's theories of evolution and learn from experts about flora and fauna that you cannot see in Baltimore! This course, held in Ecuador's Highlands, Amazon Rain Forest, and the Galapagos Islands, is an introduction to Tropical Biology and Evolution. The course will concentrate on the flora and fauna of these special habitats but will also include the history, art, and culture of Ecuador. Students will attend lectures on the JHU campus prior to departure to provide background information on the various topics covered in this course. No previous knowledge of behavioral biology or Spanish is required. The final grade will be based on a field notebook that the student keeps, participation, and a final paper due in February.
