ENST 309 - Australian Environmental Issues (Study Group)
Covers key geographic and environmental issues in Australia with a particular focus on environmental diversity. Through class lectures and discussion, critical reading, independent research papers, and field trips, students consider how the geologic and environmental history of Australia shaped biodiversity, and how humans have affected these natural communities. Field excursions will introduce students to Australia’s rich and diverse flora and fauna, its environmental and cultural heritage, and illustrate current challenges in environmental protection and management. Trips within New South Wales include: Sydney, Canberra, Jervis Bay, Royal National Park, Budderoo National Park and Port Kembla. An additional 5 day trip takes the group to Queensland to visit the Atherton Tablelands, tropical rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef.
