T C 357 • Rainforest Conservation (Costa Rica Maymester)
4:30 PM-6:30 PM
This is a course offered by the Plan II Program in the College of Liberal Arts that is open to students with some background in biology. The course will be offered in May/June 2010. ?Exploring land use in Costa Rica is a study of the 'other side' of conservation. Many conservation studies involve the biology of an ecologically important region, but this course is dedicated to examining the other aspects of conservation-- the more 'real world' considerations. These include socio-economic, political, and anthropological factors.
Students in the Plan II Program and the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Texas bring the perfect spectrum of capabilities to bear on the wide range of issues that Costa Rica faces in its efforts towards sustainable conservation.
