The British Ecological Society is broadcasting free online talks on the latest ecological research during the coronavirus lockdown period.

Join us for online seminars from a top ecologist every Thursday at 15:00 BST / 10:00 ET / 22:00 SGT.

The next talk in the series will be from Nathalie Pettorelli on satellite imagery, time series, fusion and land cover mapping: why is this at all relevant to ecology?

on transforming supply chains to save nature.

Ecology Live allows scientists to remain connected to new ideas and discoveries while working from home. The talks are aimed at anyone with an interest in the latest research in ecology and its applications, from undergraduates to working ecologists and research leaders.

The talks take place on Zoom. You need to use the Zoom app or desktop client to join the talk and accept their terms and conditions and privacy policy.

    Satellite imagery, time series, fusion and land cover mapping: why is this at all relevant to ecology?

    Information on land cover and land cover change is key for ecological research and environmental management. In most cases, this information is derived from satellite information. How this is done shapes the accuracy and comprehensiveness of the information derived. With this talk, I will explore how the recent availability of high spatial and temporal resolution optical and radar satellite imagery has dramatically increased opportunities for mapping land cover at fine scales using case studies in Africa and Asia.
  • Thu 7 May Tom Crowther, ETH Zurich
