This practicum is part of the fall semester BIOS 30555 course. Its goal is to introduce and amplify principles of evolutionary biology, ecology, and environmental science. During an eight-day field trip to the Galápagos, this course will introduce and amplify principles of evolutionary biology, ecology, and environmental science that occur in the unique setting of the Galápagos Islands. Pre-trip classes will emphasize background knowledge important to understanding the unique features of the archipelago as they have influenced evolutionary and ecological theory. On-site lectures and activities will cover the historical, geological, and biological features of the archipelago. The trip will include visits to the Charles Darwin Research Station and several scientifically significant sites. Post-trip classes will summarize the major discoveries of the trip and will be presented by students.
