Institute for Applied Ecology
The Institute for Applied Ecology undertakes world class research to improve our understanding of the environment, and enhance decision-making for natural resource management and sustainable development.
The Institute operates within two specialised centres: the Centre for Conservation Ecology and Genetics, and the Centre for Applied Water Science.
Centre for Conservation Ecology and Genetics
The Centre for Conservation Ecology and Genetics (CCEG) is committed to society’s goal of inter-generational equity, whereby we have a commitment to leave the environment at least as diverse, healthy and productive as it is now, for future generations.
Centre for Applied Water Science
The Centre for Applied Water Science (CAWS) aspires to be a national and international leader in applying the best science to achieving solutions to water management challenges. Building on the experience and capabilities present at UC and leveraging off existing networks and funding, CAWS will establish the university as an international leader in research and knowledge-generation in the area of ‘managed waters’.
