Course and Student Critter webpages
The pages listed below are one of the assignments that students do prior to spending two+ weeks in Belize. Students were asked to pick two animals, one from the jungle/terrestrial/freshwater environments and one from the marine environment, and perform a little background research on that animal and construct a basic webpage. This information was to include taxonomy, life history, reproduction and current research on the organisms.
