and human-induced impacts in protected areas; factors affecting human impacts in protected
areas; management strategies and concepts; research design for measuring and monitoring
human impacts in protected areas; visitor and site management; applications in terrestrial
and marine ecosystems (especially tropical rainforest); biological and physical environment
field survey; data analysis and interpretation techniques; reviews of previous work
undertaken in northern Australian protected areas. The main emphasis is on terrestrial
