The Amigos Newsletter is a biannual publication of the Las Cruces Biological Station and Robert & Catherine Wilson Botanical Garden, offering Friends of OTS' field station in San Vito (southwestern Costa Rica) botanical news, articles by biologists on locally-based research, and human interest accounts about life in a rural Costa Rican community.
Why the Tropics? Home to more than 80% of earth’s biodiversity. Source of many common products in daily life. Anchor of the world’s climate. A region facing rapid and destructive change.

Strategic Plan 2006-2016
The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) is an internationally recognized, not-for-profit consortium of over 60 universities, colleges, and research institutions from throughout the United States, Latin America, South Africa, and Australia. Founded in 1963, OTS provides innovative, field-based training in tropical studies for undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals. The Organization also facilitates research on tropical ecosystems, and engages in programs which support the responsible use of natural resources. OTS operates three premier research stations in Costa Rica: La Selva Biological Station in the Atlantic lowland rainforest; Palo Verde Biological Station in the Pacific deciduous dry forest; and Las Cruces Biological Station in the premontane forest near the Panamanian border.
Manual of Best Practices for Recruiting and Retaining Underrepresented Groups in Ecology and the Environmental Sciences
The Manual of Best Practices for Recruiting and Retaining Underrepresented Groups in Ecology and the Environmental Sciences was developed by the OTS Advisory Committee for Academic Diversity and funded by the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program within the U.S. National Science Foundation. The Manual of Best Practices is a reference guide for exploring the factors influencing African American, Hispanic American, and Native American students entry and persistence in ecology and environmental sciences and highlights OTS and other programs that promote identification, recruitment, and retention of students from underrepresented groups in the sciences who pursue advanced degrees in these disciplines.
40th Anniversary - Symposium
Information about the symposium including an OTS timeline over 40 years of education, research, and conservation in the tropics, speaker abstracts, and poster abstracts.
