Project: Plant spectral diversity as an integrator and predictor of community-level taxonomic and functional diversity (Canadian Airborne Biodiversity Observatory, CABO)
Surrogates from remote sensing can help to model and predict plant communities and their diversity across space. However, finding suitable indicators is still challenging. Within the CABO project, we are testing the robustness of spectral diversity metrics derived from hyperspectral data across different spatial and spectral scales.
Hope to publish more results soon!
