About Biodiversity Monitoring Services

Biodiversity Monitoring Services (BMS), formerly known as Mount King Ecological Surveys, has been undertaking fauna surveys and assessments for more than 35 years.  We are a small Australian owned business that has all of our own survey equipment and two vehicles (one to mine specification).

 

Our small size and ready access to a range of survey equipment allows us to respond rapidly and flexibly to the needs of our clients.

 

BMS comprises university trained personnel that apply a fully planned approach to providing data and advice on terrestrial vertebrate and freshwater macro-invertebrate fauna.  Scientific rigor is upmost in the approach to survey design.

 

We follow the survey and assessment guidelines recommended by State and Commonwealth agencies, including the use of BACI design when establishing impact and monitoring surveys.  Analysis of data follows established statistical procedures using several software packages and GIS.
