From the legendary Tierra del Fuego archipelago to magnificent glacier-studded fjords and sweeping pampas grasslands, you too can experience the extremes and contrasts of this tip of South America—Patagonia—which crosses the Andes Mountains from the Pacific to the Atlantic.
Joining you will be Yale Study Leader Leo W. Buss, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University. Professor Buss is widely known for his research in ecology and evolution; he has taught at Yale since completing his doctoral work at the Johns Hopkins University in 1979. His book, The Evolution of Individuality (1987), broke new ground in understanding evolution. Professor Buss was named Guggenheim Fellow in 1985 and the MacArthur Foundation Prize Fellow in 1989. He serves as Curator of Invertebrates at Yale’s Peabody Museum, director of the Sears Foundation for Marine Research and director of the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies. 2017 tour dates.
