OSPAUSTL 28: Terrestrial Ecology and Conservation

Examination of the rain forest and sclerophyll ecosystems in far north Queensland. Methodology for classification of key terrestrial ecosystems in lectures and then use of multiple field-based techniques to put theory to the test in the field. Ecosystem health is assessed using bioindicators under differing fire regimes and disturbance levels. Globally, terrestrial ecosystems and their associated fauna are affected by many of the same anthropogenic impacts and these are explored using Australian case studies and hands-on field activities. How both the plants and animals of Australian ecosystems came to be so utterly unique, in the context of the long evolution of 'the island continent' from the prehistoric rain forests that once covered the ancient super-continent of Gondwana

OSPAUSTL 32: Coastal Ecosystems

Field course that takes place on North Stradbroke Island, located in Moreton Bay. Physical and biological factors that influence ecosystems of the coastal zone. Lectures, field activities and discussions to increase knowledge of coastal ecosystems, their structure, including knowledge of the communities of flora and fauna, their importance to human communities, their management and the threats that negatively affect them. Coastal ecosystems of Moreton Bay used as an example, considering how both natural and human factors influence coastal ecosystems.
