The Centre for Ecosystem Management is one of ECU’s most productive research centres. Our researchers have diverse research interests that include ecology and ecohydrology, conservation biology and biodiversity, ecological restoration, and sustainability and health. The breadth of the Centre’s research interests allows us to work in a truly interdisciplinary fashion, with partners both within and outside of the University.  For more information on the Centre’s activities, you can view our latest Prospectus here.

ECU supported research site delivering data for decision-making on climate change and Perth’s water resources

Join us on a journey to Gingin on the Swan Coastal Plain, on land traditionally owned by the Yued group of the Noongar people, to learn about one of the state’s most important environmental research sites.  The NCRIS-enabled national research infrastructure at Gingin, including the 15m tall monitoring tower, collects data on changes to the Gnangara groundwater mound—a crucial water resource for Perth—and sheds light on how banksia woodlands are responding to environmental change.
