OSPGEN 75: Evolution of Life in Neotropical Forests of Ecuador

Experience life in two dramatically different types of Ecuadorian forests, exploring the people, creatures, and plants that live in the two areas. One is the Amazonian rain forest along the mighty Rio Napo. Here the hosts will be Kichwa (Quechua) people of the Sani commune north of the Napo and in Yasuni National Park south of the river. The other is cloud forest on the eastern and western slopes of the Andes, home of vast numbers of orchid, insect, and bird species and of the Santa Lucía commune people today and of the Yumbo people historically. Topics span exploring the ecological structures of the forests, contrasting the forest types, to social issues such as human life in the forest, sustainable living for indigenous people and visitors, and threats from oil development and climate change.
