Dr. Sydne Record just back from an educational and fun 360 trip!

In collaboration with Tim Harte and Irina Walsh (Russian Department), Sydne is teaching a 360 course cluster this semester entitled ‘Eurasia in the Anthropocene.’ The 15 students in the class plus Tim, Irina, and Sydne spent 16 days traveling across Russia, Mongolia, and Taiwan. Ecological highlights on the trip included hikes through the boreal forest of Siberia, the steppe of Mongolia, and the sub-tropical rainforest of Taiwan (with a visit to the Fushan International Long Term Ecological Research Site and Smithsonian ForestGEO plot).

Here is the group after a hike along the Liwu River in Taroko National Park in Taiwan.
