Vegetation Surveys

Vegetation monitoring

Personnel at Enviroscapes Ecological Consulting are trained and experienced in quantifying vegetation using line transect, point transect, quadrat and plotless techniques. Vegetation surveys provide quantitative baseline data for use in future comparisons, restoration efforts, and habitat assessment. In addition, we can assist in the search for federal and state listed plant species and provide recommendations for the continued persistence of those species under social and political constraints.

 Population Surveys

Enviroscapes is prepared to assist clients with all aspects of wildlife population surveys and monitoring……from the initial stages of planning and experimental design to networking with relevant agencies and landowners. We can design and assist with wildlife capture operations as well as ongoing data collection, analysis, and interpretation.  Key personnel have extensive experience with large game surveys on species such as elk, deer, and bighorn sheep as well as small game species such as pheasants and waterfowl. Sampling and monitoring non-game species including amphibians, insects, and songbirds for environmental assessments and research projects is also part of our repertoire. We understand the complexities and costs of extensive population surveys, so we work diligently to streamline efforts to maximize deliverables at the most reasonable rate possible that still allows us to conduct a safe and successful operation.  Our focus on detail ensures a successful capture and monitoring program for any client need.
