The EcoMap Costa Rica website documents an ecological study of the reforestation sites by the University of Dallas Biology Department. The field work is being performed by University of Dallas students as a part of their Field Ecology class. Field sites are on the Leaves and Lizards Arenal Volcano Cabin Retreat in Costa Rica.
This site was originally created to document the 2008 field season, and includes panoramic photographs and interactive maps of field data for the 2008 and 2009 field seasons. Data for the 2010 field season will be published here whilst we are in the field (late May) and shortly after. Future field seasons will produce similar data, allowing comparisons to be made. The reforestation project started in 2007, so this chance allows a rare possibility to chart rainforest recovery from the very beginning.
