The introductory course on applied remote sensing within the Global Change Ecology study program started. More than 20 international students are about to learn how to apply remote sensing in ecology. Software used will be R, GRASS and ENVI, while a big focus is on OpenSource software. Topics covered will be ranging from basics to…… Read More

Animal movement is critical for maintenance of ecosystem services and biodiversity. The study of complex movement patterns and of the factors that control such patterns is essential to inform conservation research and environmental management. Technological advances have greatly increased our ability to track, study, and manage animal movements. But analyzing and contextualizing vast amounts of…… Read More

our new review article about opportunities and challenges for ecologists using remote sensing lead by Nathalie Pettorelli has been published. We focused on remote sensing topics related to challenges of applied ecologists, highlighting the potential as well as caveats and of course the future developments. Habitat loss and degradation, overexploitation, climate change and the spread… Read More

We started again to organise our 10 day excursion into the Nationalpark Bavarian Forest learning how to apply remote sensing in biodiversity research. The 10 day course consists of learning field measurements such as LCCS spectrometer measurements LAI GPS and map interpretation etc. as well as working with a variety of remotely sensed data such… Read More


Our AniMove 2015 planning just started – the first AniMove in 2015 will take place again at SMSC on the Smithsonian Conservation Bioloy Institute campus. A workshop and symposium on AniMove topics will be in September in Germany and perhaps we will have another AniMove basic course at the end of 2015. Stay tuned for…… Read More


This is a book about how ecologists can integrate remote sensing and GIS in their daily work. It will allow ecologists to get started with the application of remote sensing and to understand its potential and limitations. Using practical examples, the book covers all necessary steps from planning field campaigns to deriving ecologically relevant information…… Read More
