dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to investigate how to better plan for platypus conservation in the face of climate change in Australia. First, the biology and habitat requirements of the platypus are investigated. The establishment, history, and climate change planning progress of the Commonwealth of Australia, the state of Queensland, the South East Queensland region, and local government areas are examined next. Case studies are then presented which include methods of platypus conservation in four different areas of Australia. Finally, climate change adaptation plans and platypus conservation methods are integrated and suggestions for future planning efforts are made. Possibilities for further study are included in the conclusion.
