Dr. Hooman Latifi from the Dept. of Remote Sensing held an invited speech on “Remote sensing-assisted mapping of bark beetle-induced tree mortality” at the first conference on comprehensive monitoring of stand dynamics in Białowieża forest supported by remote sensing (ForBioSensing) in Białowieża, Poland, from November 30th to December 2nd, 2016. The conference also hosted different generations and forestry-related disciplines from Polish and international research institutions.
