(Study Abroad course) A lecture/field course, Tropical Botany focuses on the general relationships between the physical environment and the growth and development of tropical plants. Emphasis is on plant structure and function, nomenclature, cultural requirements, and non-traditional production methods for food crops and ornamental plants. Attention is also directed toward the transfer of technology for improving prevailing production methods. Students will have lecture and discussion sessions at the University of the West Indies and will do on-site field studies at fruit, coffee, vegetable, and ornamental plant production facilities along the north and south coastal plains and in the central highlands of Jamaica. Visits will also include excursions to local commercial market areas in Negril, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Mandeville, and Port Antonio. Note: The course will be delivered in two parts: morning lectures from 8:30-11:50 and afternoon field work from 2:00-5:20.
