A group of student and faculty Falcons traveled to Costa Rica this summer for the Tropical Ecology Summer program. 

In this three-credit biology course, taught by Professor Chris Picone, students surveyed the ecology of terrestrial ecosystems in Costa Rica, including rainforest, cloud forest, dry forest, and agricultural systems. Recurring themes were similarities and connections between native ecosystems and agricultural systems. Students were in Costa Rica from July 22 through Aug. 1.
