ECU's research encompasses biological and environmental areas and the interaction between ecology and human health.

Specific areas of expertise include:

  • coastal marine and estuarine ecology;
  • freshwater ecosystems;
  • macroalgae and sea grass ecology;
  • forest, woodland and wetland ecology;
  • semi-arid environments;
  • plant and animal ecological genetics; and
  • microbiology and biotechnology.

Applied research addresses problems of minesite rehabilitation, habitat degradation, pollution, forest management and threatened species.

Natural resources modelling and simulation is a growing cross-disciplinary area.
