On Wednesday, 9 January, you will be assigned a species or genus name, and a geographic location. Between Wednesday and Friday you should find out what your species is and where your locality is. Make a name tag for yourself that has your name, your species, and your locality, and wear it to the rainforest mixer on Friday afternoon. At this event we will have some refreshments, people will get to know each other, students can swap species or places if they wish, review clubs will be established, and photos will be taken.
A lot of rainforest biology is about evolution. To get us oriented to the evolutionary and geological time scale, Paul will take us out after the mixer and orchestrate a physical map of the history of life.
