Invasive Species Management
Managing invasives is difficult, as each species, and each invaded ecosystem, have its own set of challenges and considerations. Our long experience navigating these questions allows decisions to be reached quickly.
Mapping and Visualization
Using GIS software to provide additional perspectives greatly enhances any effort. Examples of work we've done include the creation of visual aids such as detailed maps, and geospatial databases. Such tools can improve the understanding of a project in sometimes unexpected ways.
Formally establishing the status of your land, its boundaries, and what it holds can be a challenge. We bring the sensitivity to landscape history, ecology, and ability to quickly recognize significant features that are required to create effective documentation.
Designating the line where wetlands transition to upland habitats often determines the viability of a project. These sensitive ecosystems provide many services to society, and offer wide ranging resources to many species. With over a decade working in these types of habitats, we are well equipped to identify these boundaries, and any associated issues.
Providing unbiased expert interpretation of a project or topic is commonly required by individuals and organizations. ELM has experience with this process as both the reviewed, and the reviewer.
Conducting a wide variety of fieldwork in habitats throughout the country, has made ELM well acquainted with the variety of ways to evaluate an ecosystem or species population.
