Spring 2013

Linda Eshelman


Ecuador Faculty Lead Program is a joint venture between the Department of Biological Sciences and the Department of Communications.

You would not only learn about the natural history of Ecuador including the Galapagos but also a bit about Ecuadoran history and culture.


Begin by learning (in the classroom) a bit about…

  • some of the richest and most complex communities of plant and animal life in the world.

  • many species found nowhere else in the world.

Then the learning adventure begins…

  • We will fly to Quito, Ecuador and from there we will explore:


Rainforests

Cloud Forests

Mangrove Swamps


Páramo

High mountain biome with a vegetation composed mainly of giant rosette plants, shrubs and grasses.


And then, the Galapagos!
