Holistic ecological expertise
Great Ecology provides scientific consulting services for environmental cases throughout the United States.
With a deep understanding of ecosystems, we comprehensively assess, quantify, and address environmental injuries while developing ecological remedies.
Our holistic approach to injury assessment considers not just the products of an ecosystem, but also the processes that generate these products. By considering human, wildlife, and habitat stakeholders, we provide a more accurate accounting of lost ecosystem value.
Great Ecology's Founder & President, Dr. Mark Laska, is an experienced expert witness who specializes in key topics such as NRDA, environmental assessment of contaminants, ecological service and value loss, environmental forensics, target hazardous compounds (PFAS, PCBs, etc.), and resource recovery through restoration design.
Our work includes landmark cases like Deepwater Horizon, Natural Resource Damage (NRD) cases, small site-specific litigation, and everything in between.
As technical experts, we leverage our experience to provide clients with informed perspectives from both sides of the table. When needed, our team conducts in-depth data collection, analysis, and interpretation to accurately understand the environmental context.

Environmental assessment of air, water, soil, & biological contamination
