Remote Sensing of Biodiversity.
Working Group on Remotely Sensing Biodiversity
has published a book,
Remote Sensing of Plant Biodiversity (Springer, 2020). The Open Access volume aims to methodologically improve our understanding of biodiversity by linking disciplines that incorporate remote sensing and by uniting data and perspectives in the fields of biology, landscape ecology, and geography. The book provides a framework for how biodiversity can be detected and evaluated—focusing particularly on plants—using proximal and remotely sensed hyperspectral data and other tools such as LiDAR.
