Ecological research is concerned with the question whether
vulnerable ecosystems (plants or animals) present in the research
area that may be at risk because of the planned activities. To determine this, a
nature test or flora & fauna quick scan is carried out.
The quick scan is an exploratory study to assess the risks based on existing literature and a field study.
A nature test often follows a quick scan and is carried out
according to national guidelines. The test determines the impact of the risks. It is then determined which protective or compensatory measures have to be taken. The granting of permits for the planned activities depends, among
other things, on the outcome of the nature test.
T&A conducts various soil investigations to determine
the options for compensating nitrogen emissions. The compensation of nitrogen emissions
can be done, for example, by developing new nature reserves or adapting
existing ones. By defining the specific parameters over a longer period for each
project, it becomes clear what is and what is not feasible.
Ecological remediation are the measures which have to be taken to
restore or create a special nature reserve. The basic principle in ecological
remediation is that the soil is the basis for the natural wealth of an area. Ecological soil remediation requires knowledge of the relevant ecological system,
soil texture and soil hydrology. T&A specializes in
combining classic remediation techniques with knowledge of the soil and the
A nature test or flora & fauna quick scan can provide an answer to the question whether there are vulnerable ecosystems (plants or animals) in the research area that may be at risk because of the planned works.
