This year two courses will be offered concurrently in Peru--in addition to the Tropical Biodiversity, Emily Wakild will be teaching The History of Nature Conservation in Latin America, an upper division 3 credit history course. Both course count for the LAS minor or the Environmental Studies minor.

--how human society modifies the environment and the environment modifies human societies
--ways human civilizations are bounded by natural and social limitations
--social decisions have environmental consequences
