Program Description:
Roatan, Honduras

The island of Roatán is a long (20 miles) slender (4 miles across) mountain ridge that rises above the Caribbean Sea just off the coast of Honduras. The tropical forests that cover much of the island and the proximity to mainland Central America make this island ideal for the study of Neotropical biodiversity and the unique factors affecting plants and animals on islands. Join Dr. Brice Noonan to explore the unique plants and animals on the island of Roatán to gain insight into patterns and processes that are absent or far more difficult to interpret in mainland areas.
