The AMBS Ecology division specialises in the assessment and management of the natural environment, including specialist knowledge in the fields of flora, fauna and their habitats. We provide advice on survey design and conduct extensive field surveys to suit the purpose of each individual project.
Our bioindicator knowledge and access to leading biodiversity research means AMBS is well versed in issues concerning the Australian environment, threats and impacts facing the environment, and management practices that are best suited for a sustainable future. We have a reputation for the design and execution of effective environmental monitoring programs, and can draw on over 150 years of Australian Museum research experience in natural science.

Aquatic Ecology Services
The ecological health of our waterways has become a key issue in both land and water management. AMBS ecologists have extensive experience in working within marine, estuarine and freshwater environments. The techniques we use include a combination of electrofishing, baits and traps, and netting (including Seine, Japanese Seine, Fyke and Gill).
