We are focusing on themes related to Resilience of Caribbean Urban Ecosystems. We are offering two one-day sessions scheduled for June 10-11, 2019, for up to 25 local middle and high school teachers in natural science and human geography.
In KSTEP 2019: Resilience of Caribbean Urban Ecosystems, FIU scientists will introduce participants to the Kampong’s vast collection of exotic fruit, palms, cycads, and flowering trees and discuss cutting-edge research related to:
- Belowground ecological processes in the Caribbean region and root plant potential adaptations to climate change
- Identifying Caribbean trees and monitoring Miami’s urban trees
In addition, participants will receive a toolkit with starter materials to conduct all of the exercises presented in their classrooms.
