Biodiversity session at ESA LPS n Prague 2016

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 by Marc Paganini, Gary Geller, Michael Schaepman, Nathalie Pettorelli and Martin Wegmann.

From our department did Ruben Remelgado present his work on remotely sensed environmental variables and their explanatory power for animal movement patterns and Martin Wegmann presented the theoretical and strategic background as well as a variety of achievements how remote sensing can successfully be implemented in ecology and conservation.

We are looking forward to the next ESA-LPS with again highly interesting talks within biodiversity, ecology and conservation sessions.
