Subject Description
Students will incorporate database searches, statistics and scientific writing to conduct a comprehensive literature review on a subject relevant to their Honours project, and develop a specific Honours project proposal. Students will then undertake a research project under the supervision of one or more members of academic staff. They will develop laboratory and/or field skills in collecting data and interpreting the results. The topic of research is initially proposed by the supervisor(s), but may be modified in consultation with the individual student. Students will write a thesis on their supervised research project, and present their results in a seminar.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. access a range of campus resources relating to research;
2. comprehensively review the scientific literature on a topic relevant to their Honours research project;
3. develop an Honours project proposal;
4. design and perform experiments that contribute new information to a scientific area of relevance to conservation biology;
5. critically analyse the results of their experiments, interrogating their data using a range of statistical approaches;
6. communicate the outcomes of their research project to other conservation biologists, both in written and oral form.
