About RES

RES Experience Overview
Our biologists strive to be in the forefront of wildlife and habitat research and management.  We have built a solid reputation in nearly every aspect of wildlife management:  biology, behavior, habitat analysis and monitoring, population analysis and monitoring, associated species identification and management, stakeholder identification and public process, impact mitigation, and development of adaptive management strategies.  We are also leaders in the application of practical management techniques.

Our firm’s reputation is built upon the following:

  • Field experience with numerous species and various habitats;
  • Independent and collaborative work experience with municipalities, county governments, state and federal agencies, private developers, and suburban and rural ranchers, to determine impacts and develop and implement management strategies for wildlife species and their habitat;
  • Publication of multiple peer-reviewed and peer-edited scientific journal articles, educational articles and documents on wildlife biology, ecology, habitat characteristics, field survey methodology, population analysis, and monitoring techniques; and
  • Membership in numerous working groups and advisory committees.

Comprehensive Approach

RES is one of the only companies led by Certified Wildlife Biologists that incorporates into its assessments and management prescriptions (1) considerations pertaining to both the biology and behavioral ecology of wildlife species, (2) modern range and weed science, and (3) modern wildlife and vegetative management principles.  Our understanding of the interplay between these aspects of natural resources management is what separates our assessments from those of many other firms.  RES produces assessments that reflect the actual habitat characteristics of a given area in light of its long-term conservation or management potential.  It is only by means of this type of assessment that a decision-maker can develop effective conservation and management strategies—strategies that not only yield positive, practical results on the ground, but that are scientifically defensible. 

We believe that RES is one of the few consultants that routinely develops the type of baseline habitat inventory, technical evaluation, and analysis of results that ensures the long-term success of management recommendations, whether in terms of biological or political realities.
