Tropical Entomology in Ecuador and the Galápagos

This more-than-two-week short summer session, offered by UGA’s Department of Entomology, allows students to collect samples and photographs of tropical insects while exploring the jungle. Each morning and evening students will hike through various locations on the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador, a tropical country on the equator. The climate and location of the Galápagos Islands provides the perfect environment that led to the development of the Island’s vast and unique plant and animal life. Students of this program have the opportunity to observe a rare example of how biogeographic, evolutionary and ecological influences constituted the flora and fauna of this region.
