A window to the past

Recently a class of ANU students rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty to conduct research on biodiversity in the Asia-Pacific.

Long-Term Biodiversity and Climate Change in the Asia-Pacific Region is an intensive course that takes students to one of Australia's most biodiverse regions in the world: the wet tropics of Northeast Queensland.

Students experience first-hand rain forests, reefs and savannas of this beautiful region, engaging with Aboriginal elders, surveying biodiverse flora and fauna and collecting their own data for later analysis in the laboratory at ANU. This video follows the 2014 class as they conduct their research.
