Earth Observation for Development and Adaptation to a Changing World
Tshwane, South Africa, 8-12 May 2017
The International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment (ISRSE) will take place in Tshwane (Pretoria), South Africa 8-12 May 2017 under the overarching theme “Earth Observation for Development and Adaptation to a Changing World”.
There is a special session on "Ecology and Conservation" and it would be great if some animal movement and remote sensing abstracts will be submitted as well.
Please submit your abstract via this link and choose the respective special session:
The session aims to highlight the potential of remote sensing for ecological research and conservation applications aimed at improving linkages between these two communities, and also serving to better integrate remote sensing science into the full spectrum of ecological research and conservation applications.
Based on experiences at other scientific conferences (e.g. the last ISRSE, the International Congress for Conservation Biology, the Zoological Society of London symposium on conservation remote sensing) we know that there is strong community interest in these topics.
The session(s) will focus on the use of remote sensing for:
* characterizing biodiversity patterns
* examining changes in biodiversity patterns
* providing links between the processes driving these patterns
* highlighting areas of land cover change (priority areas for conservation action)
* designing marine and terrestrial protected areas
* assessing conservation success
* estimating the potential for the reintroduction of species
* anticipating human-wildlife conflicts.
