A habitat survey is a method of gathering information about the ecology of a site. The fundamental piece of information collected is the habitat type to which a particular area can be assigned. Habitat types are determined by reference to a system of habitat classification, which must be clearly identified. The location and extent of different habitat types that are present in a site are mapped to provide a clear spatial record. Additional information on habitats may also be collected, such as dominant species or conservation status, depending on the objectives of the particular habitat survey. The results of a habitat survey provide basic ecological information that can be used for biodiversity conservation, planning and/or management, including targeting of more detailed botanical or zoological investigations.
