Our expertise includes landscape and spatial ecology, population and system analysis for both aquatic and terrestrial systems, aquatic food webs of large water systems, and wildlife habitat and vegetation modelling. Technical expertise in the fields of statistics, GIS and spatial analysis is strong.
