Research themes

The members of the Centre for Ecosystem Management are involved in both the collection of environmental data to facilitate ecosystem and biodiversity management, and the application of research findings within environmental and societal contexts.  Research within the Centre contributes to a diverse range of topics, including freshwater ecosystems, ecological water requirements, resolving problems of habitat degradation, mine site rehabilitation, pollution, the ecology of forests and woodlands, conservation, and cultural perceptions of (valuing) the environment.

Our approach develops a partnership between ecology and management. We believe the best solutions for environmental problems can only be achieved through an interdisciplinary approach. The Centre’s research is largely conducted under four major themes:

  • Ecology and Ecophysiology (including ecohydrology, landscape ecology, etc.)
  • Conservation Biology and Biodiversity (including biogeography, systematics, etc.)
  • Ecological Restoration (including mine site rehabilitation)
  • Sustainability and Health (including sustainable NRM, agriculture, environmental exposures, etc.)
