Study with Brown University in Monteverde, Costa Rica!
Join Brown University in San Luis de Monteverde, Costa Rica to study the cloud forest from a different perspective - high up in the trees! If you are an adventurous and curious person who is passionate about science and nature, this course is for you! Students will study a beautiful and unique ecosystem -the tropical montane cloud forest - and will learn tree climbing techniques in order to study a hyper-diverse canopy community.
The lead instructor, Dr. Sybil Gotsch, has been conducting research in Monteverde's ecosystem since 2012 to understand how on-going changes in climate, such as increases in drought, affects this ecosystem. Students will learn techniques in field biology by directly participating in Dr. Gotsch's research program. Field activities will serve to broaden students' experience in conservation biology and field ecology, and will hone students' ability to observe and understand the natural world.
