DANTA: Association for Conservation of the Tropics Winter 2010/2011 and Summer 2011 Field Courses
Danta: Association for Conservation of the Tropics is pleased to announce its winter and summer 2011 field courses in tropical biology. The courses are intended for undergraduates or early graduate level students who have a keen interest in tropical biology and conservation, but have little or no experience of working in a tropical environment. Participants may enroll on either a credit or non-credit basis.
Courses will be held in Costa Rica’s spectacular Osa Peninsula. As one of the largest tracts of rain forest north of the Amazon, this area is renowned for high animal and plant diversity. It is one of only a few places in Costa Rica that has jaguar, puma, sea turtles and four species of monkey (mantled howler monkey, black-handed spider monkey, white-faced capuchin and squirrel monkey). It is also home to nearly 4,000 plant species, including trees more than 200 feet tall. All students participating in our programs will have opportunity to be involved in applied conservation and community service.
Winter 2010/2011 Course
Primate Behavior and Conservation (December 28, 2010–
January 17, 2011) Instructors: Kimberly Dingess, Anthropology, Indiana University, Bloomington; Dr. Jessica Westin, Anthropology, Penn State and Dr. Klaus Zuberbühler, Psychology, University of St. Andrews, Scotland.
Summer 2011 Course
Primate Behavior and Conservation (June 15–
July 12). Coordinator: Kimberly Dingess, Anthropology, Indiana University, Bloomington.
Sea Turtle Conservation and Tropical Herpetology (July 14–
August 10): Instructors: Dr. Steffen Reichle, Dept. of Science Education, The Nature Conservancy; and Dr. Dirk Embert, Science/Conservation Officer, Fundacion Amigos de la Naturaleza, Bolivia.
As much of our advertising is done by word-of-mouth, we encourage you to spread the word by forwarding this email to students or friends who may be interested in our programs.
We hope to see you in Costa Rica!

Over 60% of all infectious diseases of animals can also affect humans, and incidences of new, emerging zoonotic infectious diseases are on the rise. Veterinarian-scientists, by virtue of their broad experience in multiple species and extensive training in both molecular and whole animal contexts, are uniquely qualified to address the complex problems presented in modern biomedical research.
For over 40 years, the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine has provided an outstanding environment for the training of future veterinarian-scientists through its VMD/PhD Program. Find out more about how you can impact tomorrow ’s medicine for all species at www.PennVetPhD.org

We’re excited to announce that the University of Michigan Program in Biomedical Sciences (PIBS) has developed a video overview of our program so that you can learn all about PIBS and Ann Arbor from the mouths of our students and faculty.
You can check out the full video or short clips on the main PIBS website:
Please feel free to share this new resource with your students when discussing Michigan for their graduate studies.

The Center for Environmental Research and Conservation (CERC) at Columbia
University offers education programs serving undergraduate and graduate
students as well as professionals. CERC's programs provide opportunities for
critical skill building and problem-solving in conservation and
sustainability. Please share the opportunities below with your colleagues
and anyone you know who may be interested.
Non-science majors take:
Summer Ecosystem Experiences for Undergraduates (SEE-U)
Undergraduate field study courses in Brazil, the Dominican Republic, and the
Hudson River Valley. Introduces students to ecology and conservation biology
through lecture and lab courses that allow undergraduates of all majors to
study in the field and earn up to six science credits, which fulfill core
science requirements at Columbia. Fellowship is available. Covered by
Columbia's Tuition Benefits.
www.cerc.columbia.edu/?Id=see-u for more information on SEE-U.
Working professionals choose:
CERC's Certificate Evening Program for Professionals
Evening classes designed for the working professional provide an in-depth
understanding of the science, economics, and today's critical issues of
environmental sustainability. Columbia affiliates are eligible to receive a
special tuition rate.

We encourage participation of out-of-state students through National Student Exchange and other similar programs. Applications are due April 1, 2010 for the fall 2010, but may be submitted at any time before that date. The minor is available in just over one semester and while exchange students are encouraged to remain in residency at UM during the spring semester, program requirements can be completed from their home college or university.
