Universal FQA Calculator

Floristic Quality Assessments (FQAs) are measurements of either a natural area's (site) habitat condition or quality, or a specific natural community’s condition or quality at a site. FQAs are widely used by government agencies and conservation groups to inform land management decisions.

This web-based tool calculates site inventory and transect or plot FQAs. FQA databases published for a number of geographic regions have already been imported into the website, and users can import and customize other FQA databases as needed.
