Fauna

In addition to our in-house staff specialising in botany, zoology and wildlife management, the Terrestrial Ecology unit engages Australian Museum research and collections staff in commercial work. This includes senior research scientists and other specialists in marine ecology, vertebrate and invertebrate zoology, GIS analysis and DNA analysis.

AMC Ecology has the capacity to undertake small to very large-scale projects throughout NSW and interstate. We conduct environmental assessment and impact investigations and undertaken monitoring and management studies for a wide range of projects and clients, including government departments and private agencies.

Terrestrial

Our ecology team has specialist skills and experience in all areas of terrestrial ecology including:

  • vertebrate fauna
  • biodiversity survey, planning and monitoring
  • environmental impact assessment
  • opportunities and constraints assessment
  • fauna management plans
  • habitat rehabilitation and design
  • threatened species management plans
  • GIS data collection and interpretation
  • Scientific analysis and interpretation of survey data
  • seven part tests
  • species impact statements
  • Part 3A assessments
  • biobanking assessments
  • expert advice
  • peer review.

Aquatic

The loss of and degradation of aquatic ecosystems has seen an increase in the importance of management and protection within aquatic habitats. AMC takes a multidisciplinary approach to management and assessment, drawing from the expertise of Australian Museum staff who are continually producing benchmark publications relevant to aquatic environments.

Australian Museum marine ecology staff are leading taxonomic expertise in marine fauna, including polychaetes, crustaceans, molluscs and fish. Habitats particularly susceptible to human impact are often the target of research, including collaboration on commercial projects with AMC. Our affiliation with the Museum's research team allows us to provide our clients with the most advanced surveying techniques and data analyses systems and the use of specialised equipment held by the Museum.

Our aquatic biologists are certified Occupational SCUBA Divers (AS 2815.1 -- part 1), who comply with the strict standards of Australian Museum Protocols for safe diving. Underwater survey techniques include taking core samples, quadrats, transects, percent cover, visual censuses, and underwater photography.

Invertebrate

AMC has been involved in a number of innovative research, monitoring and interpretative projects throughout Australia, including partnerships with mining interests and collaboration on commercial projects with Australian Museum terrestrial invertebrate staff. Some examples of recent projects undertaken by the Australian Museum are presented below. The Australian Museum is a recognised authority for the identification of the threatened species Cumberland Land Snail (Meridolum corneovirens).

Flora

Our surveys are designed to provide an assessment of biodiversity values supported by the quantitative collection and analysis of survey data which has been scientifically tested. Such assessments will be able to withstand rigorous investigation.

We have the capacity to undertake small to very large-scale projects throughout NSW and interstate. We conduct environmental assessment and impact investigations and undertaken monitoring and management studies for a wide range of projects and clients, including government departments and private agencies.
