Research

Environmental Geography is the part of Geography that has the most active collaboration between human and physical geographers, as they study the relationships between environments and societies in places.

Variations in the ways  that people inhabit and use environments in places, and the processes (natural and social) that operate at different scales to alter those environments and the lives of people relying on them, are a strong focus. Members of the academic staff and research students in the School of Geography are involved in research and teaching on changing human-environment relationships: their research considers the implications of those changing relationships for governance in a range of ecosystems and landscapes, as well as for evolving environmental conditions.  Research is conduced largely in Australia and in the Asia-Pacific region, with much fieldwork involved and close collaboration with people and institutions in the settings being studied.
