Biodiversity Research Institute has been conducting scientific inquiries for government and private sector clients nationwide and globally since 1998. Using both traditional and innovative approaches, BRI scientists collect, analyze, and interpret scientific results on how ecological stressors impact living systems. By incorporating regional data and developing strategies for collecting additional data, BRI has effectively modeled such stressors on species and community distributions, phenology, adaptive strategies and population viability across tropical, temperate, and arctic biomes. Researchers at BRI excel in the capture of all avian species, bats, and small mammals toward comprehensive ecological services in following areas of expertise.
Contaminants and Toxicology – With over 17 years of experience, BRI is a national leader in collecting, analyzing, and publishing data on the fate and transport of mercury in ecosystems. Other investigations include historical or legacy contaminants such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), and lead. Mercury samples are analyzed in BRI’s in-house laboratory. Specific experience includes:Assessing contaminant levels in wild populations of:
Developing wildlife risk assessments and contaminant exposure profiles.Laboratory services provided by either:
Animal Movements – Capturing and tagging animals to gain insight on migratory patterns, local demographics, and other population-related metrics is one of BRI’s premier areas of expertise:
Renewable Energy Development – BRI is experienced with conducting studies designed to assess spatio-temporal effects of wide array of energy development on wildlife.Wind Energy – the effects of offshore wind energy development on marine birds, mammals, and cetaceans to research:
