About CDAE 095 TR1

Ecology is a scientific term derived from the Greek word for home, Oikos. For many, however, ecology is often considered the study of natural processes and interactions separate from the human ?home?. This perceived separateness can lead to complacency and the short-sighted management of global natural resources and the degradation of life-sustaining ecosystems. By understanding and appreciating the interdependence of human culture (society) and ecological systems (ecology) a more sustainable way of life can be conceptualized. Students in this course will have the opportunity to explore one of the most pristine ecosystems in the world, the Monteverde cloud forest of Costa Rica. During our stay at the Biological Research Station located at Estacion Pocosol, we will utilize the rich biodiversity of the largest private reserve in Costa Rica, the Children?s Eternal Rainforest (CER) as a model for studying the interconnectedness of humans and nature.
