Description

The aim of this subject is for students to examine the fundamental principles of ecological systems and biodiversity, and in the context of ecological sustainable development gain an understanding of the effect of human impact on these systems. Environmental problems relating to air, water, soil and noise pollution, greenhouse and the disposal of solid and hazardous waste will be studied. Using local and regional case studies, students will learn to evaluate and develop strategies and management practices to achieve sustainable solutions for these problems and examine other areas such as ecotourism and industrial ecology.
