Course Title: Tropical Entomology

Course Page: https://fieldprojects.org/participate/courses-2/tropical-entomology

Dates: Dec. 27, 2015 – Jan 8, 2016

Location: Los Amigos Biological Station, Southeastern Peru

Registration: Until Nov. 18, 2016

Course Fee: $2000

Course Description: Participants will receive advanced training in insect diversity, form, and function, as well as field techniques that facilitate entomological research and conservation in the tropics, covering groups ranging from butterflies to beetles, bees, and aquatic insects, among others. Students will be introduced to an astonishing array of terrestrial and aquatic habitats that shelter a greater diversity of plant and animal species than anywhere else on the planet. Above all, participants learn by doing: we will spend most of our time studying actual insects in the field, from the tops of towering tropical trees to the bottom of oxbow lakes. Our field activities will be supplemented by selected readings from the primary literature covering topics on theoretical and applied tropical biology and entomology, as well as conservation in the Andes and Amazon regions.
