Vegetation Surveys (Geobotanical Analyses) Go Back

Vegetation field surveys and inventories are done by highly qualified experts and scientists of specific fields are involved for difficult cases. Outcomes are not only surveys but also risk assessments for protected natural assets (inc geobotanical and dendrology assessments). These risk assessments are the important input for impact assessments and conservation management.

The purpose of vegetation surveys (geobotanical analyses):

  • To describe vegetation, to determine habitat types and communities of the area;
  • To specify the occurrence of rare and protected plant species, their population area extent and condition;
  • To specify the area extent and diversity of the habitat;
  • To give an assessment of the area natural conservation value;
  • To give an assessment of the probable impacts from the planned development.
