Ecology & Biodiversity

Ecology is the study of the interrelationships between all living organisms and their environment. Ecological science and ecological thinking are therefore cornerstones of environmental assessment. The importance of preserving ecological resources, including flora, fauna, habitats and the processes that link them, is now strongly recognised in law and ever more widely appreciated by the public.

We can help you to identify ecological constraints and opportunities at an early stage in the development process so that sufficient ecological information is available to inform and support development proposals.

We have a well-established and highly regarded in-house team of ecologists that can provide advice across the widest variety of project types and interrelationships with biodiversity. This includes advice on strategic issues and legislation, site surveys and impact assessments, as well as habitat design and the preparation of mitigation licenses and management plans.
