Experimental Design & Analysis is often lost in the world of ecological and environmental consulting. However, many ecological and environmental consultants are starting to design more ‘robust’ methodologies to ensure that their assessments fully consider the potential impacts of a proposed activity and that they meet with adequacy requirements expected by government agencies.
While a robust scientific design may not suit many short term projects, larger projects and monitoring programs do require an adequate Experimental Design & Analysis to ensure that they comply with minimum survey requirements or can be used for statistical analysis. A simple data set could provide valuable information such as, ‘Is the observed bird community different across the vegetation communities of a site?’
EnviroKey can provide specialist advice on matters regarding Experimental Design & Analysis for even the smallest projects.
