Upland Platform

Platforms that do not include surface water can also provide extensive native upland habitat, featuring plant communities such as the valley oak woodland and chaparral and wildlife species such as western gray squirrels and California scrub-jays.

Before implementation, hydraulic impacts of the platform must be studied. Ensuring wildlife access to the platform is also crucial for its success as a habitat.

* The wildlife species listed in these examples are potential key indicator species and are not meant to be a comprehensive list, since wildlife is found in a variety of contexts given specific site conditions. * These profiles are not a substitute for good ecological design led by ecologists, landscape architects, and engineers. The use of biodiversity profiles while further engaging qualified ecologists and scientists in projects can help to add additional ecological data on a project-by-project basis.
