Biodiversity session at ESA LPS n Prague 2016

The biodiversity and conservation sessions at the ESA Living Planet Symposium was a huge success. We had a full room with highly interested audience and very fruitful discussions about how remote sensing can help to understand biodiversity patterns as well as the road ahead with Remote Sensing Essential Biodiversity Variables (RS-EBVs). The sessions were organized… Read More


In framework of activities of the working group “Ecology and Environment” of the German Region of the International Biometric Society, this working group joined the forest biometry section of the German Association of Forest Research Institutes (DVFFA) to organize the session “Aktuelle Entwicklungen bei Datenerfassung, Auswertung und Modellierung in der Forstwissenschaft” during the FoWiTa conference… Read More
