This course will look at the biodiversity of Belize and look at both the physical and biotic factors that affect this diversity. We wil examine a variety of organisms, focusing on those that are most easily observable (common vertebrates, insects, and plants). Students will learn about specific organisms and understand how their structure, physiology, and behavior affect their distribution and diversity within each region. We will take advantage of different ecosystems found in this region, namely wet, tropical forest and various marine environments (including mangrove swamps and coral reef systems).
