Ecological consulting projects range from research to design and beyond, but every project impacting land and water requires an understanding of existing physical and biological conditions.
Ecologists are able to inform project stakeholders about site conditions by conducting an initial natural resource inventory (NRI) which provides the foundation for planning work. AES scientists operate with an overarching principle of sustainable cohesion of flora and fauna, land, and water.
On complex assignments, we frequently work with other professional partners – planners, landscape architects, engineers, and architects – to collaborate on many challenging projects. We have been privileged to team with talented designers and planners on some of the most challenging and innovative projects in the world.
Our scientific expertise in ecosystem structure and function provides a platform to unify what are often disparate, and sometimes adversarial, approaches to land-use decisions.
