San Salvador

From May 18-28, Eastern biology students traveled to the Gerace Research Center on San Salvador Island, the outermost island in the Bahamas, for an 11-day study tour of marine and terrestrial environments. San Salvador’s flora and fauna include both native and introduced species, making the island a natural laboratory for studying island biogeography. Marine studies focused on coral reef, sea grass bed, mangrove, beach and rocky shore communities.
