With the ever-increasing regulations implemented by both state and federal governmental agencies, the ability to impact ecological resources has become increasingly restricted, costly, and time consuming. Many forms of development, such as industrial, commercial, residential, utilities, recreational, storm water, and other types of development may impact wetlands and other ecological resources. Ecosystem management as applied by HSA addresses the biological, engineering, social and economic aspects of natural resources so that they may be managed as an integrated system. We apply the basic scientific principles governing the interrelationship between biotic (e.g., plants, animals, insects, microorganisms) and abiotic factors (e.g., climate, soils) in major ecosystems that include grassland, wetland, land reclamation, agroforestry, wildlife management, sustainable agriculture, and soil biology.
