Welcome to OTS Tropical Biology 16-3!


The course is off to a hot and exciting start at Palo Verde Biological Station. Students participated in some introductory workshops (statistics, leadership, experimental design) and are now finishing up their first research projects with invited professors Dr. Luis Sandoval (University of Costa Rica), Dr. Sean O’Donnell (Drexel University), and Dr. Patty Jones (Cornell University). We have seen scarlet macaws, a puma with cub, and some troublesome young capuchin monkeys that keep us entertained at meal times.

One more day here and we are on to Monteverde, even though it feels like we just got here!
