Biodiversity and Conservation session at ISRSE 2015

Remote Sensing in Biodiversity and Conservation special session at ISRSE 2015, Berlin – May 11-15 Satellite remote sensing is an important tool for improving our understanding of biodiversity condition and trends, along with drivers of biodiversity change. It is also increasingly a management tool for biodiversity conservation.  The first use focuses on basic research for improved knowledge of what drives biodiversity in landscapes and seascapes, as the latter addresses more applied efforts for conservation.  Although improved understanding supplies the knowledge base for successful conservation, the different objectives of the research and applied communities often mean that the information flow...

Remote Sensing Session at ICCB-ECCB 2015

SATELLITE REMOTE SENSING FOR CONSERVATION: FROM SUCCESSFUL CASE STUDIES TO GLOBAL IMPLEMENTATION special session at ICCB-ECCB 2015 – August 2-6, Montpellier, France Satellite remote sensing (SRS) provides a wealth of opportunities to monitor the different constituents of the planet’s natural environment, allowing access to standardized, global, continuous data directly relevant to the monitoring of, and pressures on, biodiversity. Because of this, satellite-based information can underpin the construction of useful indicators of ecological change that measure past ecological impacts and provide early warning signs of impending change. Such information could facilitate the implementation of a number of international, regional and...

RS-EBV workshop

RS4EBV workshop 27-29 January 2015 Leipzig To scope the challenge and feasibility of RS4EBV. Review background to the use of Remote Sensing for Essential Biodiversity Variables and d esign interdisciplinary case studies aiming at a special issue on “EBVs and Remote Sensing”. Studies will analyze the impact of scale (grain, extent) as well temporal, thematic and geographical resolution and extent of imagery to define the limitations of remote sensing for EBV monitoring.   Organised by Andrew Skidmore, Sander Mucher, Nathalie Pettorelli and Martin...

ISRSE Biodiversity and Conservation session

Satellite remote sensing is an important tool for improving our understanding of biodiversity condition and trends, along with drivers of biodiversity change. It is also increasingly a management tool for biodiversity conservation. We will emphasize the dual potential of remote sensing for biodiversity research and conservation applications in two synergistic sessions. Our aim is to highlight the linkages between the communities and demonstrate the potential to integrate remote sensing science into the full spectrum of biodiversity research and conservation applications. The sessions will focus on the use of remote sensing for many topics, including: characterizing biodiversity patterns examining changes...
