M.Sc. handed in on animal movement and remote sensing

The M.Sc. thesis “Can animal movement and remote sensing data help to improve conservation efforts?” by Matthias Biber M.Sc. student within the Global Change Ecology program handed in his thesis. He explored the potential of remote sensing data to explain animal movement patterns and if these linkages can help to improve conservation efforts. He used ...

MSc opportunities: remote sensing in ecology and conservation

species_richness_HyMap

Biodiversity analysis and conservation decision relies on adequate and meaningful data that are available on a long-term and global basis.  Such environmental information need adequate spatial and temporal resolution and remote sensing data does provide a wide range of potentially suitable data sets. Various approaches concerning remote sensing data use for biodiversity and conservation exist ...

MSc handed in on impact of remote sensing for biodiversity monitoring

MSc handed in on impact of remote sensing for biodiversity monitoring

Anna Stephanie handed in her MSc thesis on “Impact of remote sensing characteristics for biodiversity monitoring”. Very impressive study on multi-scale, multi-model and multi-variable analysis of mangroves in Myanmar. She was supervised by Martin Wegmann. While Myanmar is one of the world’s hotspots for biodiversity and endemism, it is currently undergoing enormous political and economic transformations ...
