Symposium - Space: the final frontier for biodiversity monitoring?

 

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the symposium: "Space: the final frontier for biodiversity monitoring", held by the Zoological Society of London, where top scientist from diverse backgrounds discussed the applications of remote sensing techniques for global biodiversity monitoring.

I presented two posters. One of them showing practical examples of the Land Cover Map 2007 (created by CEH) for biodiversity studies, and the second one describing part of my PhD research on using historical satellite images to study changes over time in habitat selection of avian species. 

You can read the description of the event on the Northwest East Observation Network (NEON) website, as two of the members of the network (Christopher Marston and myself) participated in the symposium.
