East Tennessee State University International Programs Office has approved the 2014 Study Abroad program at Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia. Led by one of our coPIs (me) and our new chair Joe Bidwell, an accomplished aquatic biologist, this study abroad will allow participants to learn about evolution and ecology of biodiversity hotspots using Baikal biota, this wonderful Nature’s laboratory, as a brilliant example. Tentative dates July 10-10 2014.
