Palo Verde Day 1: The adventure begins for the OTS 2015 summer graduate course (Tropical Biology: An Ecological Approach). We’re off to a great start with an awesome group of students, 21 strong, and four fantastic visiting faculty (Kasey Barton, Beth Pringle, Miguel Acevedo, and Tomas Cárlo). The students braved a swarm of mosquitos to explore and learn about tropical dry forest ecosystems, an endangered habitat type in Costa Rica and across the world due to habitat loss and land-use conversion.
