Our expertise

E-BIOM combines a testing laboratory with an scientific expertise  office dedicated to biodiversity conservation, ecology and protecting the environment.  Our goal is to help public and private stakeholders incorporate biodiversity in every project.


Monitoring biodiversity in natural areas

Biological inventories

  • Expertise in flora and fauna: bacteria, flora, fungi, birds, insects, amphibians, reptiles, molluscs, crustaceans, fish etc.
  • Natural terrestrial and freshwater aquatic environments
  • Species monitoring and biological inventories using environmental DNA

Molecular ecology

  • Identification of organisms or by-products using DNA barcoding
  • Studying diets
  • Studying population genetics, phylogeny and phylogeography.


  • Assessment of the quality of wetlands: benthic invertebrates, fish etc.
  • Establishment and monitoring of biodiversity indicators: abundance, richness etc.
