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.
