Satellite images capture plant diversity

Biodiversity monitoring in the field is very time-consuming and expensive. For this reason, little is known about biodiversity and how it is changing, especially in regions that are difficult to access. Hope rests in space-based satellite monitoring to continuously record biodiversity around the world.

Anna Schweiger from the University of Zurich and Etienne Laliberté from the University of Montréal show that this should work, at least for plant biodiversity. “Our study will help to determine changes in the biodiversity of plant communities effectively and reliably via satellite in the foreseeable future,” said the researcher, according to a statement from her university. “With targeted field work, causes and consequences could then be analyzed and hopefully negative consequences counteracted in good time.”
