BI 222 - Field Studies in Tropical Biology


Second part of a two-course sequence with BI 221  that introduces students to the biological complexity of tropical ecosystems. Field Studies in Tropical Biology is a two-credit course offered the summer following BI 221  that complements the understanding tropical biology students have gained in the classroom by providing a hands-on field experience in the ecologically diverse Central American country of Belize. Throughout the trip, Saint Anselm faculty and local experts will lead field exercises in two of the most species-rich ecosystems on the planet, the neo-tropical rainforest and coral reef. With its emphasis on Belizean ecosystems and travel within the country, this course provides students a unique opportunity to learn about and then experience the ecology and culture of a different country.

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