Tropical Science for the 21st Century

March 30-April 5, 2003, Costa Rica

The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS), the perennial training organization for U.S. and Latin American tropical scientists, will host 200 plus scientists from throughout the world in three-day field-courses, banquet and one-day scientific symposium. The mix of hands-on learning, presentations by leading tropical researchers and educational functions will expand participants' views of tropical science, facilitate collaborations and help define education, research and conservation goals.

Tropical Biology (Rubber) Boot Camps, OTS Biological Stations, March 30 - April 2 Participants will get their boots dirty as they experience the biodiversity of the tropics and discover (or rediscover) how to conduct science in one of the most complex environments on earth.

Celebration Banquet, San Jos, April 2
