Content

In SLE244 students will develop key conceptual principles and associated issues in ecology and illustrate their applications to real-world problems in marine and aquatic environments. Learning and assessment activities in this unit will provide students with the opportunity to explore population dynamics and links to conservation and management of key species. Students will study the interactions between species and their environments, including restoration ecology, impacts of disturbances, ecosystem science, landscape/seascape ecology, and spatial and temporal processes in ecosystem management. They will also examine the logic behind the design, implementation and data analyses of ecological investigations.
