EBIO 212 Climate Change, Biodiversity, and Tropical Forests

This course is offered as part of the Stone Center for Latin American Studies Summer in Costa Rica Program. Students may not register on-line for this course; they must register directly with the Stone Center Summer Program office. The course will introduce students to the structure and ecology of tropical forests. Students will be expected to integrate what they learn about the real social and economic causes of deforestation and grass roots efforts to revert it with the social, political, economic and biological logic of world climate change agreements and disagreements.
