We also provide ecotoxicological data collection services. We specialize in delivering complex multispecies surveys over large scales and are experienced in specialized techniques including aerial mammal inventories, gill netting, trawling, fish larval sampling and identification, otolith ring counting, passive acoustic monitoring for bats, snake sampling, fish acoustic tagging, electrofishing, bird sonogram monitoring, mammal tagging, radio telemetry and others. Our team of senior scientists have published a wide range of biological studies in peer reviewed academic journals.
