Welcome to the Environmental Sciences’ web site. The Department is committed to excellence in research, learning and teaching, and community engagement. In 2011, the Times Higher Education ranked Macquarie University the top institution in Australia and New Zealand for research in environmental sciences and ecology, and 14th in the world. More recently, environmental sciences was one of three disciplines at Macquarie to have again achieved the maximum rating (‘well above world standard’) in the Australian Government’s 2012 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) analysis.

We hope you find this interesting and that you find what you are looking for, but please contact us if you require further information.
