EV3205/5205: Conserving Tropical Rainforests
EV3252/5252: Indigenous Environmental Management
Human-natural environment transactions using social, psychological and biophysical perspectives. My research approach incorporates an interdisciplinary perspective on reciprocal relationships indigenous and non indigenous people have with the natural/built/social/cultural environment in the WTWHA and the implications of such relationships for environmental management, tourism and local communities in the region. A particular emphasis in the research is placed on the ‘real world' application of results in terms of planning for, managing, monitoring and reporting on the State of the Wet Tropics, and developing practical mechanisms and strategies to mitigate negative impacts on those features of the WTWHA inherent to its World Heritage status
