GIS AND REMOTE SENSING APPLICATIONS IN BIOGEOGRAPHY AND ECOLOGY

GIS AND REMOTE SENSING APPLICATIONS IN BIOGEOGRAPHY AND ECOLOGY

This volume gathers together a representative set of examples from the many varied spatial techniques and analytical approaches being used by geographers, ecologists, and biogeographers to study plant and animal distributions, to assess processes affecting the observed patterns at selected spatial and temporal scales, and to discuss these examples within a strong conceptual spatial and/or temporal framework. Therefore, the aims of this volume are to: + Identify the key spatial concepts that underpin Geographic Information Science (GISc) in biogeography and ecology; + Review the development of these spatial concepts within geography and how they have been taken up in ecology and biogeography; + Exemplify the use of the key spatial concepts underpinning GISc in biogeography and ecology using case studies from both vegetation science and animal ecology/biogeography that cover a wide range of spatial scales (from global to micro-scale) and different geographical regions (from arctic to humid tropical); and + Develop an agenda for future research in GISc, which takes into account developments in biogeography and ecology, and their applications in GISc including remote sensing, geographic information systems, quantitative methods, spatial analysis, and data visualisation.
