Summer is the perfect time for students to travel the world, gain real-world experience or continue their studies through summer courses. Last month, 20 undergraduate students enrolled in Megan Frederickson and John Stinchcombe’s Tropical Field Biology course got to do all this at once – and experience remote and biodiverse ecosystems that few people ever get to see.

The fourth-year course gives students the unique opportunity to conduct both group and independent field research in the Andean and Amazonian regions of Peru.
