ITT: Special Issue on Earth Observation for Biodiversity and Ecology

The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) has identified Biodiversity and Ecosystems as two of nine Societal Benefit Areas for the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).
The principal drivers for this designation are the importance of biodiversity and ecosystems to human health and well-being, ecological services, environmental protection, genetic resources, disaster risk reduction and mitigation, and the intrinsic value of life.
The Convention on Biodiversity calls for protection of key species and ecosystems, and there is a need to identify Earth Observation strategies and techniques for monitoring species, populations and ecosystems, especially where endangered and imperiled. Towards this end, Remote Sensing of Environment is sponsoring a Special Issue on Earth Observation for Biodiversity and Ecology which will focus on in-situ, aerial and satellite observation for characterizing and monitoring the status and trends of biodiversity and ecosystems. RSE invites you to submit abstracts of potential papers for the Special Issue by July 15, 2006 to:
