Field data collection

The first step in every environmental survey is the fauna and flora data inventory. A large amount of data collection methods are available but only the most suitable will be used to achieve all kind of survey according to each site particularities.

Fauna and flora

- Forested area
- Mountain and alpine zones
- Wetland and riparian forests

Field data collection


- Forest type classification
- Vegetation community
- Habitats classification

Environmental Survey

Field data must be then analysed to understand interaction in every ecosystem. Spatial analysis is a possible tool for decision making and biodiversity conservation.


- Fauna and flora location
- Spatial analyses on GIS software


Spatial modelling

- Habitat suitability mapping.
- Landscape connectivity analyses


Statistics and image analyses

- Multivariate statistics
- Aerial and spatial images analyses


Natural habitat conservation and management

- Habitat quality assessment
- Ecosystems restoration


Human activities must be integrated into the environment. A way to achieve this goal is to share and show what can be done in term of conservation and protection of natural habitats.


- Technical guides
- Scientific articles


- Photography
- Poster, exhibition, flyer...


- For scientists: seminar, training
- For stakeholder: working groups, presentation
- To everyone: animation and mountain leading
