Ecological and spatial statistics

CSP develops and applies statistical tools to quantify the influence of environmental and population changes on ecosystems and the species they sustain. We use the most advanced, defensible techniques in biometrics, spatial statistics, and computer modeling to provide deeper insight into dynamic biological and ecological processes. Our decades of experience working in complex ecological systems ensure that we design rigorous standards for sampling and apply field and analytical methods that deliver the robust information conservation practitioners need to make effective inference and decisions.
