THREATENED & ENDANGERED SPECIES
We at DuBois and Associates specializes in the assessment, study, surveying, and recording of threatened and endangered species throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Potential development areas often lie within threatened and endangered species habitat, which may result in a significant amount of study and planning in order for development to continue.
VERNAL POOL SAMPLING
Vernal pools are ephemeral areas of ponding that support critical breeding habitat for both common and imperiled amphibian species. Biologists at DuBois and Associates conduct amphibian calling surveys, egg mass surveys, and larval sampling surveys to document obligate vernal pool amphibians. This is critical in the development planning stage may be regulated under certain state regulations.
LIMNOLOGICAL & RESTORATION SERVICES
Lakes, Streams, Rivers, & Esturaries

BAT MIST NET & ACOUSTIC SERVICES
DuBois and Associates staff scientists are approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to perform mist net and acoustic surveys for both the Indiana bat and northern long-eared bat. We perform active surveys by deploying mist nets in the field to physically capture bats and record biological data, as well as perform passive acoustic surveys...
HABITAT CONSTRUCTION, RESTORATION &
Biologists at DuBois and Associates provide project proponents, planners, and private homeowners with plans that conserve, create, restore or enhance aquatic and terrestrial wildlife habitat while at the same time accomplishing the objectives of proposed development.
ECOLOGICAL EVALUATIONS & ECOLOGICAL ASSESSMENTS
Scientists at DuBois and Associates prepare Ecological Evaluations (EEs) and Ecological Risk Assessments (ERAs) for environmentally sensitive natural resources (ESNR) associated with contaminated sites and/or wetland mitigation banks.
ENVIRONMENTAL & BIOLOGICAL CONSTRUCTION MONITORING
Environmental and biological oversight is performed during various construction operations within and surrounding environmentally sensitive areas. We ensure that best management practices are adhered to during all phases of field construction operations and that project activities are conducted in a manner that is environmentally sound.
