Galapagos Islands Short Term Course
Eighteen Bates students will spend 3 weeks studying the ecology and evolutionary history of the Galapagos Archipelago during Short term 2014.
A new short term course – Bio s32 – Ecology and Evolutionary Biology of the Galapagos Archipelago – taught by Dr. Larissa Williams and assisted by Greg Anderson will spend three weeks in the Galapagos studying one of the world’s most treasured and protected natural locations. Visited during the voyage of the HMS Beagle, Charles Darwin made critical observations that helped him to formulate his theory of evolution by natural selection; subsequent investigations by naturalists have since generated some of the most convincing evidence for evolution. The course participants will maintain a blog of their daily adventures and invite everyone to read it . Participants will make short presentations of their experiences during the last week of Short Term.
