ENVSCI 702

: Applied Estuarine Ecology
2021 Semester Two (1215)
Emphasises multi-disciplinary science that integrates across different empirical and theoretical approaches to better understand the functioning of soft-sediment ecosystems. Covers fundamental ecological principles of soft-sediment systems through to the impacts associated with human activities. Includes practical exercises in experimental field ecology which will introduce students to key research methods. No formal prerequisite but knowledge of Stage III marine ecology/science, or equivalent, will be assumed.

ENVSCI 711

: Assessing Environmental Effects
2023 Semester Two (1235)
A focus on the interdisciplinary, scientific assessment of environmental activities with specific reference to the New Zealand context. Methodologies used in the assessment, monitoring and regulation of environmental effects, trends and risks will be critically evaluated. Aspects of the RMA, including consenting procedures and the role of public and professional participants in the process, will be discussed. A key component of the assessment is the preparation of an individual Assessing Environmental Effects report.
