TECHNIQUES FOR RAINFOREST RESEARCH,
AUSTRALIA


PROGRAM DETAILS

  • Term: Summer Session II
  • Credits: 4 semester-hour credits (8 credits if taken with Session I)
  • Prerequisites: No course prerequisites: 18 years of age
  • Application Deadline: Rolling admissions. Early applications encouraged

OVERVIEW

Explore the verdant rainforests of Australia, which are threatened by development, climate change, and invasive species, leaving fragments that are often too small or isolated to sustain certain species. During this session, develop field research skills across multiple disciplines used to research forest ecology, restoration, and conservation.
  • Learn sampling design, GPS and GIS techniques, plant identification, forest survey techniques, animal survey methods, and social science research techniques
  • Experience largely intact lowland forest and contrast with the fragmentation effects impacting the rainforests of the Atherton Tablelands
  • Visit a Great Barrier Reef island and learn about the links between riparian restoration and water quality on the reef
