On Saturday afternoon, members of the Carleton Chess Club rolled out vinyl chess mats on the tables in Sayles 252, laid out chess pieces, chess clocks, and drew a scoreboard on the blackboard. That’s all you need for a four-hour tournament of this old and devilishly hard game.

Over winter break, the fifteen lucky Carleton students in Biology 361: Tropical Rainforest Ecology got to travel to Costa Rica for two weeks of intensive research at the La Selva Biological Station. We had designed our own experiments over the course of the fall term to put to work while we were there - three teams of five people each studied leafcutter ants, orchid bees, and poison dart frogs. The two weeks at the station were an intensive experience of sample collecting, hiking, evening seminars, mudstaches, and rice and beans.
