Services provided

I am a terrestrial ecologist and independent ecological consultant with over 40 years professional experience working in the UK and the Arabian Gulf region. I specialise in vegetation surveys, data management and GIS mapping (especially using the National Vegetation Classification and UK Habitats Classification in the UK), but can also undertake other specialist botanical work (e.g. surveys of invasive non-native species and bryophytes) as well as bird surveys and general ecological appraisals. For protected species (fauna) surveys I recommend contacting the consultancies listed on my links page (see opposite).

I also design and publish books on natural history and wildlife under the imprint of Browndown Publications and edit and produce the newsletter of the Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland (BSBI News).

My clients include other ecological consultancies, planning consultancies, public utility companies, non-governmental organisations and private individuals. I am a Full Member of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM), a committee member of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight’s Flora Group and the British Bryological Society’s regional recorder for VC10 (Isle of Wight) and VC11 (South Hants). See the links opposite for further details.
