Books, Publications, and Guides
Starting in 1991, the Bio FSP started self-publishing a book from the research projects conducted on the course. Below we provide access to the books from 1991 to the present. In addition, we also have some hand-written papers dating back to 1978 from the marine segment of the course. Many of the research projects that students have conducted have been published in the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science (DJUS) and some have been published in peer-reviewed journals as well. We also provide links to some of these published articles. Finally, the Bio FSP has also inspired the creativity of many students, and we include poems, artwork, and videos produced by students while on the program.
Below are custom nature guides created by prior Bio FSP programs to focus on the plants and animals that we commonly see in Costa Rica and the Carribean.
Poems, Artwork, and Videos
With warmth in our hearts and chiggers in our socks,
We want you all to know that Corcovado rocks.
Don’t put your foot in a hole that you cannot see,
Or else you’ll end up as an amputee.
Life there’s tough with the bugs and the heat
But with your FSP friends, it can’t be beat.
Extra Large Data Archive
Starting in 2010, the Bio FSP has made a concerted effort to follow international trends of archiving data and associated meta-data. These data files are now available for future Bio FSP courses and may be useful for comparing projects across years.
