Research in Tropical Ecosystems (NS/SS 362) is a Sterling College field study program in which students have the opportunity to diversify their northern Sterling experience with an intensive field course in a tropical region. This research oriented course builds on research skills learned at Sterling College and allows students to implement these skills in a tropical ecosystem. Partnering with local biological research stations and the local community, Sterling students have the opportunity to explore the impacts of land use on a tropical watershed and coral reef. Tropical Ecosystems and Culture (NS 381) is offered during the fall semester and is recommended but not required for participation in this field study program.
