Terra Mar brings decades of rigorous peer review, in both individual and collaborative team settings. Our award-winning recognition with peer review services can assist you with adhering to standards of scientific and research integrity, promoting project transparency and accountability, and being most responsive to the needs of your particular stakeholders.
When it is time for you and your organization or business to make sound decisions using environmental research, we bring a synthetic, inter-disciplinary emphasis to help you evaluate the validity, quality, and originality of relevant science findings.
Terra Mar will help you manage biodiversity data across the United States in policy or regulatory contexts, for decisions like land use planning, transportation infra-structure, lands management, or agricultural conservation programs.
We can help you apply this expertise to such issues as endangered species conservation, Habitat Conservation Plans, State Wildlife Action Plans, or the protection and restoration of tidal marshes affected by sea level rise. Our staff also can assist you with putting together green infrastructure plans to guide wind and other sustainable energy projects.
