BFSA consulting biologists are involved in a wide variety of biological work associated with the study of regional ecosystems. Our projects focus on characterization of biological resources and assessment of potential projects to support threatened and endangered species, as well as presence/absence surveys for sensitive resources. Our biologists are familiar with critical habitats, including coastal sage scrub, chaparral, mountain and desert habitats in the western and southwestern United States.

BFSA’s diverse staff of plant ecologists, wildlife specialists, and aquatic and wetlands professionals conducts studies ranging from database and extensive field surveys to development of comprehensive mitigation programs. We have extensive experience in conducting major field surveys requiring large teams of personnel for surveying remote areas such as deserts or forests, preparing natural resources and habitat management plans, wetlands delineations and marsh restoration, and enhancement for both coastal and inland wetlands.

Studies are conducted using progressive techniques in data collection and analysis, and in compliance with state and federal regulations.
