This subject introduces students to an understanding of ecological systems for landscape architects and allied design disciplines. Through this course, students are introduced to relevant and contemporary landscape and urban ecological theory including understandings of pattern, process, scale, time. Studies are situated across the Sydney region where a range of field trips and class discussions introduce and broaden students' understanding, appreciation and reading of Sydney's ecology. Relevant field methods and tools to observe, document, classify and analyse interdependent, complex and evolving systems are introduced and findings communicated. The ultimate aim is for students to consider how landscape architecture can deliver on its promise of ecological design to translate ecological planning and design principles into place-specific, lasting and durable design outcomes.
