  • BIOM22 Environmental Assessment and Management

    This module covers Environmental Assessment & Management skills. Students enrolled in this module will learn to choose suitable environmental management systems to solve environmental problems in the real world, to apply a variety of techniques to environmental evaluation, and to make environmental impact assessments and reports. This module introduces the SPICOSA System Approach Framework through stakeholder interaction and construction of conceptual models of ecosystems followed by delivery of the outcomes of these to stakeholders. It aims to give the students an overview of the full process of developing a generic management strategy for a range of natural ecosystems.
