In case you are looking for a good and detailed overview of the possible applications of satellite data in natural resource management, this book by Nathalie Pettorelli may be the right choice for you.
The book first discusses terminology and principals behind remote sensing data and analyses (thus assumes no prior technical knowledge of satellite remote sensing systems and products) and then demonstrates how the combined application of remote sensing and ecological knowledge can help to address a wide array of current natural resource management needs.
