Baseline Surveys & Biological Monitoring
Baseline surveys provide an image of how the area is being utilised prior to any works commencing. It measures key indicators before a project begins against which change and progress can be assessed. Completing a baseline assessment within the planning phase is essential to provide a better understanding of how the project is affecting that area, whilst providing comparative data for the before and after states of any works.
Biological monitoring is a way of assessing the number of toxic compounds in the environment, by measuring the chemical composition in a biological specimen. This can determine the effects of both biotic and abiotic factors and highlights any changes affecting the ecosystem.
