    Vol Issue 3 (Thematic Section: Bringing Species and Ecosystems Together with Remote Sensing Tools to Develop New Biodiversity Metrics and Indicators) September , pp. Integrating Remote Sensing into Wildlife Monitoring for Conservation. Applications of remote sensing data are finding increasing application in fields as diverse as wildlife ecology and coastal recreation management. The technology engages electromagnetic sensors to measure and monitor changes in the earth’s surface and atmosphere.

    The ability to anticipate the impacts of global environmental changes on natural resources is fundamental to designing appropriate and optimised adaptation and mitigation strategies. However, this requires the scientific community to have access to reliable, large-scale information on spatio-temporal changes in the distribution of abiotic conditions and on the distribution, structure.   Scientists from the WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society), NASA, and other organizations have partnered to focus global attention on the contribution of satellites to biodiversity conservation in a recently released study entitled “Ten Ways Remote Sensing Can Contribute to Conservation,” featured in the latest edition of the scientific.

    Remote Sensing in Ecology and Conservation is a fully open access journal from Wiley and the Zoological Society of London. The journal provides a forum for the rapid publication of peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary research from the interface between remote sensing .

Remote Sensing for Biodiversity and Wildlife Management emphasizes transdisciplinary collaboration, technological innovations, and new applications in this emerging field. Landmark case studies and illustrative examples of best practices in biodiversity and wildlife management remote sensing at multiple scales are featured in this pioneering work.5/5(1).

The volume, whose chapters bring together a large cross-section of the biodiversity community engaged in these methods, attempts to establish a common language across disciplines for understanding and implementing remote sensing of biodiversity across scales.

The first part of the book offers a potential basis for remote detection of biodiversity. Remote sensing plays a major role in mapping and understanding terrestrial biodiversity. It is the basis of most land cover/land use maps, provides much of the environmental data used in species distribution modelling, can characterise ecosystem functioning, assists in ecosystem service assessment, and is beginning to be used in genetic analyses.

Biodiversity and Conservation Horning et al successfully achieve their main goal of making the technical discipline of remote sensing accessible to a new audience. The text is supported by invaluable colour diagrams and images to bring the more technical aspects to life.

Conservation of Biodiversity Using Remote Sensing and GIS. Book January the priorities of biodiversity conservation and management mainly through spatial.

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.

Remote sensing plays an increasing role in EBC research, especially regarding large spatial and/or long-term temporal scales. Moreover, the use of remote sensing deepens with the support of state-of-the-art remote sensing products and technology. Certainly, it is impossible to make progress without the assistance of GIS and GPS.

This chapter focuses on the application of space-borne remote sensing and GIS for biodiversity conservation in the context of the state-of-the-art technology which has enhanced the classical approach. Pressures resulting from climate change, ecosystems loss and wildlife crime are threatening biodiversity and wildlife around the Globe.

In response to this a wide range of applications, initiatives and projects have been developed that are using space-based technologies, such as Earth Observation satellites and their geospatial data, satellite-communications and global navigation.

The works presented in this Special Issue represent scientific and technological innovations in remote sensing for assessing the spatio-temporal dynamics of wildlife species and their habitat, and their incorporation into ecological research and biodiversity conservation.
