What is biodiversity? You will learn about this by examining the many different types of
environments around the world. You will also investigate the way human activities have
changed environments on a global scale around the world as well as in Australia, particularly
in our local area. A large part of your work will be devoted to case studies; the Sevens Creek
and a wetland environment. You will undertake fieldwork which means that you will go out
on excursions during which, for example you will look at the effects of erosion and collect
data to analyse and report on. This subject has aspects of both Science and Humanities.
