INST 4020 - Tropical Nature: Reefs and Rainforests in a Global Context

Hours: 4
Reefs and rainforests are revered cathedrals of diversity and ecological intrigue to those of us who live at higher latitudes; but to the people that live in these ecosystems, they are their homes and breadbaskets. In this class we will learn about reefs and rainforests as scientific and aesthetic treasures, but also as the sites where many difficult global issues are playing themselves out. Students will learn how the ecosystems function, and why these functions are beginning to break down as we move into the future.
