Sensing Plant Biodiversity and Its Threats: From Drones to Satellites
Thursday, December 1, 2022
9:00-10:00 AM
10th Floor Weiser Hall Map
Monitoring plant biodiversity and its threats are critical for maintaining Earth's functions and services. First, this talk will discuss recent approaches for sensing different components of plant biodiversity, like species presence, abundance, and functions of native and invasive species, using various remote sensing data sources. Secondly, we will discuss alternative approaches to upscale these biodiversity and invasion patterns to the landscape level using a combination of drones and satellites with Machine and Deep Learning algorithms. Finally, we will present the development of our current project, where we are sensing the relationship between plant functional diversity and drought adaptations in Mediterranean environments. Speaker(s): Javier Lopatin (Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez)
