Event details

Last summer, seven undergraduate students and one graduate student under the direction of KU curator/professors Caroline Chaboo (Entomology) and Steve Goddard (Spencer Museum of Art), travelled to the Peruvian Amazon to research a number of interdisciplinary topics. Everyone involved relied heavily on a small map of the base of their activity, the Cicra Biological Field Station. The map detailed thirty-nine trails, underscoring the human presence in the rain forest, as well as the difficulty of navigating it. This exhibition (co-sponsored by KU’s Biodiversity Institute) includes contributions from all members of the cohesive research team to give a fuller account of the different ways the rain forest experience touched everyone involved.
