Wet Tropics Watershed Ecology and Conservation

4 credits

This course follows the Barron River’s journey from tropical North Queensland’s World Heritage-listed rainforest ranges in the Atherton Tablelands through Lake Tinaroo and to the Great Barrier Reef just north of Cairns. Students explore the connections between land and sea and learn about the ecological processes and socio-economic factors that shape rainforest, watershed, and reef management in Australia’s tropical north, and the factors needed to maintain healthy ecosystems in the face of climate change, development and increasing urbanization.
