In this subject students study the nature of Australian wetlands, the ecology of waterbirds in Australia, the processes that threaten wetlands and waterbirds and management options to mitigate these processes. In addition to acquiring knowledge of Australian wetlands and waterbirds students will also acquire skills in the critical evaluation of the literature and in the design of management plans to conserve waterbirds. As this requires a high level of previous understanding of bird ecology, it is assumed that a students understanding of ornithology is equivalent to that obtained in Bird Behaviour, Ecology and Conservation (BIO432). The subject has no residential school. On completion of the subject students will be able to identify significant gaps in our current knowledge of wetlands and waterbirds and be able to design management plans to conserve wetlands and waterbirds.
