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
- Forest type classification
- Vegetation community
- Habitats classification
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
- 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.
