Conversation about the Costa Rica formation, Process and Geology

Costa Rica is known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. Roughly a quarter of its area is made up of protected jungle. During the session you will learn more about the formation of the country and about the Arenal Volcano and the catastrophic event of 1968, when the Volcano suddenly and violently erupted. The eruptions continued unabated for several days, burying over 15 square kilometers with rocks, lava and ash.

Conversation about the Life Zones and Ecosystems based on Holdridge System

Holdridge’s work aimed to correlate world plant formations with simple climatic data. The system embraces all major environmental factors in three hierarchical tiers. During this session you will understand how a country smaller than West Virginia has more than 5% of the world’s biodiversity, has 12 ‘life zones’ of the 38 that exist in the world, based on the Holdridge metric System.
