The “ecoscience” project type is for any assessment & monitoring project which does not involve public participation. Ecoscience research projects are most typically set up by scientists collecting data for their own research projects or by ecologists and natural resource management (NRM) practitioners undertaking surveys for planning related development applications, long-term site monitoring projects, and more.
