Program Overview: 
China is one of the largest countries in the world with a land area of over 9.6 million square kilometers spanning tropical, subtropical, and temperature regions and a population of over 1.4 billion people. As a major continental area of eastern Asia, China has long-lasting geological, biological, and cultural ties with North America. In fact, many animals and plants occur only between the two continents. It is therefore fascinating and important to personally experience the land, wildlife, and culture in both places. This course will focus on similar and unique characteristics of China in comparison with the US in terms of physical geography, plants, fauna, and culture, and aim at culturing global perspectives on nature and culture. The major topics cover comparative physical geography of eastern Asia and North America, floristic and zoological connections, human relationships, and environment and culture.
