The Fascinating World of Tropical Ecology

Professor of Biology Thomas Walla, PhD

Tropical Ecology has been a focal point for Thomas Walla, PhD, since his first trip to Ecuador in 1991. Since that time he has sought to bring the wonders of tropical diversity to the classroom and his research. Walla's research is vast and includes measuring the diversity of interactions along the elevation gradient of the eastern Andes to the Amazon. Most recently, he’s joined a team participating in the XPRIZE Rainforest competition, funded by the Alana Foundation. Learn more about Walla in this edition of the CMUnow Podcast.
