The students (Sarah, Brant, and Shreyas) presented on a variety of topics including: The effectiveness of leaf mimics in deterring Heliconian Butterflies, Decomposition rates of the Acnistus arborescens, Evaluating macroinvertebrate biodiversity levels in landscaped areas, and Examining macroinvertebrate community composition of epiphytic bromeliads. A number of students from other programs attended the presentation to learn about ecology on the Costa Rica campus.
