New video: Travel course students bug out in Panama forest
Students and staff at the Institute for Tropical Ecology and Conservation (ITEC) in Panama have put together a video documenting part of UW-Green Bay’s travel course that took place there in January. The four-minute video, posted to ITEC’s Facebook page, documents UW-Green Bay Prof. Mike Draney and class conducting a rapid assessment survey of insect, arachnid and millipede diversity in the forest. Draney, UW-Green Bay instructor Vicki Medland and St. Norbert College Assistant Prof. Carrie Kissman led the travel course, which enrolled nine UW-Green Bay and St. Norbert students. They are UW-Green Bay grad students Stephanie Beilke and Thomas Purdom, along with undergrads Jenna Harrington, Brandon Justinger, Robyn Nielsen, Linda Vang and Brian Yagle. St. Norbert students Adam Dziewa and Katie LaPlante also made the trip, part of the cooperative travel course organized and run through UW-Green Bay. See the video.
