Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

describe the different scales of life within the environment and the evolution and diversity of organisms

understand the principles of naming and classifying species and apply taxonomic keys for species identification

undertake field sampling to describe and assess the characteristics of species, populations, and communities
