MAI's environmental consulting and information management expertise springs from a variety of projects spearheaded by Jim Muller while Director of the Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI). Categories of information organized by FNAI include: rare and endangered species, outstanding natural areas, managed conservation areas, and proposed conservation land acquisitions. This information is used regularly for development, transportation, and natural resource planning by public and private entities.

In building FNAI operations, Jim Muller successfully initiated, researched, and negotiated $8 million in new or increased contracts and grants, quintupling the FNAI staff and budget in five years. Funding sources included federal, state, regional, and local governments. He planned and initiated a comprehensive aerial photograph analysis of remaining unprotected natural areas in Florida. He also initiated a statewide assessment of coastal upland natural communities.

From 1997 to 2000, MAI served as Special Consultant to Florida's Executive Office of the Governor for the Florida Keys. Serving in a liaison capacity for the Governor's Office, MAI interacted with state, local, and federal agencies on a variety of issues including funding sources, comprehensive planning, carrying capacity, wastewater, stormwater, coordinated permit review processes, transportation, land acquisition, and natural resources. Agencies included the Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Army Corps of Engineers, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Florida Department of Health, South Florida Water Management District, and Florida Department of Transportation.
