What is a biological inventory assessment and why do I need one?

A Biological Inventory Assessment is a baseline study conducted to census sensitive habitats and species that occur, or have the potential to occur, at a site. Generally, they involve multiple site visits and directed surveys to observe the presence or absence of sensitive species. Such assessments are often required to look at the potential impacts from proposed development at a site. Reports from Biological Inventory Assessments may be used in government agency review and permitting processes.
