READING AUSTRALIAN LANDSCAPES
Credit points: 15
Students are introduced to the processes that shape Australian landscapes. Selected environments are used to illustrate influences and interrelationships of climate, ecology and land forming processes on the natural system. Through practical work, field work and assignments students learn to use a range of techniques that will enable them to "read" landscapes from a naturalist's and an outdoor educator's perspective.
