Ecology and Conservation Major (BEnvSc(Hons))

Ecology and Conservation Major

The Ecology and Conservation major is focused on the interrelationships between plant and animal species and their environments, and how their populations may be modified by environmental changes. Ecologists are equipped to analyse environmental systems and to recognise critical physical and biological processes and their interactions. This enables ecologists to develop measures to avoid damage from disturbance or pollution to species or ecosystems at risk.
