Terrestrial ecology

The Terrestrial Ecology Department offers comprehensive services in species and biotope mapping as well as species protection and nature conservation planning. On the basis of the surveys of all species relevant to planning, we prepare specialist species protection reports or develop species assistance concepts, with one of our focal points being bat surveys. Should the survey reveal conflicts under species protection law, our services also include the planning and implementation of species protection measures, the relocation of animals and plants and the monitoring of the corresponding measures.
