December 6, 2017

Our article “Protection status and national socio-economic context shape land conversion in and around a key transboundary protected area complex in West Africa” lead by Henrike Schulte to Bühne has been published in the current issues of the Remote Sensing in Ecology and Conservation Journal. It is great to see her M.Sc. thesis being published on the importance and potential of remote sensing data analysis for land cover conservation in West Africa focusing on the transboundary protected area WAP in Benin, Burkina Faso and Niger.
