Biology 242 - Thailand: People, Animals and Plants of Thailand

The hills of Northern Thailand provide a home for many different ethnic peoples, who have for centuries lived in harmony with their environment. These unique cultures are currently threatened with globalization and problems of immigration, restricted land use, crop restrictions, lack of cash crops and productive forests, environmental degradation, water pollution, poor sanitation, and food security. The objective of this course is for students to be involved in a mutual relationship with the hill tribe villagers, in which the students can learn from the villagers as well as continue to work on long-term projects that meet the needs of the village.
