Natural vegetation mapping and monitoring
Natural vegetation changes all the time
Vegetation changes permanently. It grows, sheds leaves, is grazed, burns, dries out, etc. Invasive species may dominate locally and require inventory and monitoring as a first line of action. Also indigenous plant species may cause trouble e.g. as the host for the caterpillars of the oak processionary moth.
NEO’s services are based on a proper understanding of the dynamics of vegetation, its use and impact. NEO monitors duckweed and pondweed as a service to respective water quality managers. We monitor forests on logging, burning, encroachment, etc. We monitor natural grazing areas, marshlands, floodplains etc.
