Field work in Henri
Pittier National Park (Venezuela)
Latest notice: due to securicy
problems in Venezuela, the 2014 course will probably take place in Equador.
This means, infortunately, more expensite flights.
information about the course (pdf)
Course participant's equipment
Candidates have to register for the course
personally with me (Inst. Environ. Sci., room 2.1.2). Registering at USOS is
not sufficient and does not guarantee a place on the course! You can still
register for the 2014 course.
Important information about the costs: Although there is no course fee,
students have to cover their own travel and accommodation costs. The return flight
from Poland to Venezuela costs usually ca. 4000 PLN (although much cheaper
airfares happen; e.g., 2200 PLN in 2012), and the accommodation is ca. 500 USD
(covers all lodging and food during the course). Jagiellonian University
usually provides some grants to our students (up to 2000 PLN per person).
So far, all course participants tell that the course is worth the effort!
options to study tropical ecology and biology:
tropical biology courses organized by
Association. The courses take place in Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya,
Madagascar and Borneo.
The Institute of Environmental Sciences is the
