An Ecuadorian Adventure

In March 2008, Scott Strobel, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor at Yale University, took 16 students from the Rainforest Expedition & Laboratory course to the forests of Ecuador to find plants that harbor endophytes—bacteria and fungi that live inside the plants. The students ultimately plan to isolate natural products made by fungal endophytes in the hope that the compounds will be useful for medical and other applications. During the expedition, the group visited a variety of ecosystems throughout Ecuador, including a cloud forest, a rain forest, and a dry forest. Here are some scenes from the adventure.
