Study Abroad Interest Meeting: Winter 2020 Hawaii BISC
The Hawaiian Islands have experienced waves of settlers from many different cultures, from the early Polynesians to the establishment of major military bases and a thriving tourist industry. Each group of people brought plants, animals and customs associated with each of their cultures. The impact of each group on the environment has resulted in changes to the land, extinctions to plants and animals and invasive species. This Winter Session program will utilize BISC107 (Elementary Evolutionary Ecology) and BISC127 (Environments and Cultures in Conflict) to examine the interactions of people and the environment. Field studies (beaches, volcanoes), projects, lectures and excursions to cultural centers, museums, national parks and other habitats will be used to investigate the history of the islands.
