What are specialist surveys?
Surveys of specific taxonomic groups are sometimes required which need experienced specialist skills in order to successfully identify the target group.
Targets of these surveys include, but are not limited to, aquatic plants, lichens, fungi, and moths.
When do I need to get in touch?
Specialist surveys are usually recommended following a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal / Extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey or can be requested by Local or Statutory Authorities.
However, if you know you require a specialist survey that is not listed as a specific service then get in touch and we can discuss your options and provide you with a free quote.
