Remote Sensing for Ecology and Conservation

Book coverThe goal of Remote Sensing for Ecology and Conservation is to increase the awareness and use of remote sensing data and methods in conservation biology and ecology. Conservation biology has grown from local and regional studies of single species, into a discipline concerned with the complex interactions of biodiversity and its environment at global, regional, and local scales and across scales.  Increasingly, remote sensing provides a crucial tool for the effective collection of the information needed to set conservation priorities, and develop conservation plans.  This book will also provide information to ecologists to help them do their work more effectively by incorporating remotely sensed data.
