This postgraduate course builds students’ knowledge of plants and plant communities and focuses on plants as components of urban ecological landscape patterns at the site, landscape and metropolitan scales. It examines the role of plants in various situations, for example, in landscape remediation and regeneration, planning for climate change resilience, and serving as ‘green infrastructure’, and protecting riparian and wetland areas. The course involves excursions to local sites, and students are asked to contribute to the cost of these excursions.
