Course Description: This course examines the relationship between landforms and the diversity of plants and animals they host. It investigates the way in which certain landscapes support particular types of ecosystems and the roles played by climate, time, and earth surface processes in maintaining and forcing change in those ecosystems. The key systems examined include river, wetland, groundwater, karst, desert and alpine. The subject also considers human impacts, and climate change and how these may determine biodiversity and geomorphological trajectories of these systems. Field work (of up to 5 days through the semester) is a key learning mode. Through lectures, practicals and field exercises, skills are developed in a range of analytical techniques used to investigate relevant environmental processes and changes.
