EV5200 - Terrestrial Resource Management
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Marine & Environmental Sciences
This subject introduces best-practice approaches to the sustainable management of
terrestrial landscapes and natural resources in Australia. Lectures provide an overview
of selected topics in NRM whilst practicals and fieldwork are used to develop skills
in NRM activities and to illustrate the complexities of putting NRM theory into practice.
Postgraduate students are expected to demonstrate a capacity to independently identify
and analyse NRM related problems and to be able to effectively and eloquently present
their ideas to a diverse audience.
- Students will hone their appreciation of links between the science underlying the
practice of natural resource management and the human dimensions that allow priorities
for NRM activities to be set and science-based prescriptions for best practice NRM
to be adopted. Multidisciplinary approaches to NRM are emphasised most strongly. Particular
emphasis is placed on biodiversity conservation, use of fire for environmental purposes,
carbon inventory and conservation, and on adaptation to climate change from a natural
resource management perspective. Postgraduate students are expected to contribute
original, discipline-based approaches to the broad subject matter under consideration.
