Coastal Environments (2804ENV)

This course gives students a thorough grounding in the physical and biological processes occurring on the coastline and in near shore marine habitats, especially sandy beaches and rocky headlands, the habitats that dominate the south-eastern Australian coastline. Anthropogenic threats to these habitats will also be discussed. The course can be taken on its own or in conjunction with other marine biology courses as part of the Marine Biology major. Assessment involves an essay, laboratory report, an end-of-semester written examination and presentation of group project work. Prerequisites: 1014SCG Statistics, 1003ENV Statistics, 1003EAS Statistics, 1203EAS Statistics, 1605SCE Engineering Mathematics and Statistics AND 1042SCG Genetics and Evolutionary Biology, 1602ENV Botany and Zoology, 1602EAS Botany and Zoology.
