Belize Tropical Biology Global Seminar
During the Belize Tropical Biology Global Seminar, students will experience intensive readings, lectures, discussions, field instruction, and observations, as well as research and service projects related to coral reefs and their associated organisms.
During their weeks in Belize, students learn about the ecology of coral reefs; they learn to identify common species, and they study their behavior and relationships. Additionally, students will learn something of terrestrial and human history in Belize — especially the ancient Mayan culture.
Director: Tim Nelson, professor of biology
Note: The Belize Global Seminar is offered during Christmas break during odd numbered years, alternating with the Galapagos program.
