    Description

    There has been a recent proposal to change the way that biology is taught and learned in undergraduate biology programs in the USA so that students develop a better understanding of science and the natural world. Here, we use this new, recommended teaching– learning framework to assert that permanent forestry plots could be a valuable tool to help develop biology literacy in the Caribbean and to help reverse what we perceive to be a trend of increasing detachment from nature in our Caribbean undergraduate biology students.
