Barbados (Conn 211): Home

Course Description

This course intends that students understand the living landscape -human and botanical- as a result of historical processes, decisions and accidents. Combining historical methods utilizing primary sources along with biological field methods, the natural and anthropogenic dynamics of West Indian botany will be studied. Through this focus we expect students to gain various biological field research skills including plant (and other organismal) identification using keys as well as modern technology-based determination techniques, herbarium use, and the use of open-access technology for data collection, analysis, and citizen science.
