BI 221 - Tropical Biology

Part one of a two-course sequence with BI 222  that introduces students to the biological complexity of tropical ecosystems. Tropical Biology is a two-credit course offered during the spring semester (every other year)  that examines the fundamental scientific concepts and theories that describe tropical systems. Course work will cover a variety of topics, including the natural history of tropical biota, patterns of species diversity, rainforest ecology and conservation, coral reef ecology, and Belizean history and culture. 

Note: Completion of both courses (BI 221 and BI 222)  fulfills a biology laboratory requirement for the biology major.

Two hours lecture during spring semester. Two credits
