Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Honours E - ECOL4107

Year - 2020

Independent research can be a life changing experience. In this unit you will complete a research project in the discipline of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Together with your supervisor, you will identify a novel research question and develop a hypothesis. You will then design and carry out experiments to test your hypothesis. In terms of assessment, you will communicate the research plan and findings through written tasks and oral presentations culminating in a 75 page (approx 20, 000 word) honours thesis. Successful completion of your Honours will clearly demonstrate that you have mastered significant research and professional skills for either undertaking a PhD or any variety of future careers.
