David Attenborough circles the equator to study life in rain
forests, where year-round tropical climates make them ideal
habitats for a colorful array of flora and fauna. In the Amazon,
Attenborough watches a pygmy marmoset use its razor-sharp teeth
to feed on succulent tree sap. In Borneo, he views a paradise
tree snake gliding like an airborne streamer from tree to tree.

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
