ENV316-516 Ecosystem Function: Field Studies In North Australia

ENV316-516 Ecosystem Function: Field Studies In North Australia

This field intensive introduces the tropical savanna biome and landscapes of northern Australia, while developing a range of skills in field survey and data collection, management and analysis. Central to the unit is a 10-day field program, during which students will investigate environmental gradients and ecosystem function by assessing landforms, soil and vegetation. Land management practices are also considered from a range of perspectives. The 10-day field intensive involves a 1000km return journey between Darwin visiting study sites to the south (for example, Mataranka and/or Litchfield National Park).
