plant identification, and theoretical and practical issues in plant taxonomy and conservation.
- develop an appreciation and understanding of the underlying factors involved in the
conservation and management of tropical floras;
- gain an understanding of the origins and development of the Australia flora;
- gain experience in identifying plants;
- undertake a mini-research project, introducing the scope and form of higher research
degrees (honours and masters) available in the school.
|Students enrolling in this subject should have a good understanding of botanical concepts
and techniques covered in first year. BZ2480 (Restoration Ecology) is highly recommended.
