Indigenous Ecosystem Processes

Staff have a high level of understanding of ecosystem processes having previously undertaken (and published) studies on disturbance mechanisms in indigenous ecosystems, threatened species ecology, and the impacts and roles of introduced animal pests (including monitoring studies) and pest plants.

Wildland Consultants Ltd have undertaken ecological surveys and related assessments of the following indigenous ecosystem and habitat types: indigenous forest, scrub, shrubland, freshwater wetlands, estuarine wetlands, lakes and lakeshores, sand dunes, geothermal vegetation, grasslands, herbfield, and offshore islands from the coast to inland mountains.  Exotic forests have also been surveyed for flora and avifauna.  Staff are very familiar with estuarine and freshwater wetland ecosystems, having undertaken detailed vegetation surveys of estuaries and many freshwater wetlands.
