Content

SLE325 enables students to develop a multidisciplinary knowledge of the links between organisms and their response to physical and chemical contaminants and anthropogenic disturbance in the environment. Learning and assessment activities in this unit will provide students with the opportunity to examine the conceptual basis for ecotoxicology and ecological risk assessment. Impacts linked to human activities such as mining, coastal development, waste discharges and exotic species will be investigated, and will be considered in the broader context of a changing climate. Students will be working independently and collaboratively to research and practice methods for assessing ecological/toxicological risks and identification of impacts through current case studies and applied field/laboratory exercises.
