I spent eight years (2000-2007) lecturing for the University of Queensland. Over this time I was the coordinator for the Terrestrial Ecology component of International courses at the Centre for Marine Studies. My classes were Stanford University, University of California, and the Hobart and William-Smith and Union Colleges from New York.
These were terrific, field-based courses, with lots of time in the bush, rainforest, and the coast. The flavour of these classes can be judged from some of the photos.
The basic theme of my Australian terrestrial Ecology course was to explore how much of Australia’s distinctive character could be explained from its fundamental properties.
