Course description

BIOL2001 introduces you to the flora and fauna of the Australian continent. Through lectures and fieldtrips (Brisbane Forest Park, Fraser Island World Heritage Area, Lamington National Park and Australia Zoo), you will examine a range of Australian animals and vegetation types, and learn about Australian climate, soil, and geomorphology, along with those historical factors that have helped shape tthe distinctive terrestrial environment of Australia. The course will also give you a broad understanding of ecological principles and processes that are specific to Australia, and will allow you to critically assess the impacts of human activities on our fragile terrestrial ecosystems. There are additional costs for the field trip.
