Multispectral Approach for Identifying Invasive Plant Species Based on Flowering Phenology Characteristics

Tarin Paz-Kagan, Micha Silver, Natalya Panov, Arnon Karnieli
2019 Remote Sensing  
Hyperspectral data, in conjunction with high spatial resolution species distribution maps, were used to train the multispectral images at the species level.  ...  Invasive plant species (IPS) are the second biggest threat to biodiversity after habitat loss.  ...  For example, land surface temperature, an environmental factor that showed high relative influence on IPS density, could be related to the flowering signal.  ...

Volumes by tree species can be predicted using photogrammetric UAS data, Sentinel-2 images and prior field measurements

Mikko Kukkonen, Eetu Kotivuori, Matti Maltamo, Lauri Korhonen, Petteri Packalen
2021 Silva Fennica  
Nonetheless, it is often overlooked that small area FMI require considerable field data in addition to UAS data, to support the modelling of forest attributes.  ...  In this study, we propose a method whereby tree volumes by species are predicted with photogrammetric UAS data and Sentinel-2 images, using models fitted with airborne laser scanning data.  ...  In the case of UAS-based inventories, the use of aerial image data to predict tree species could prove to be problematic due to the need for local training data for the modeling process.  ...

Detecting Burn Severity across Mediterranean Forest Types by Coupling Medium-Spatial Resolution Satellite Imagery and Field Data

Luigi Saulino, Angelo Rita, Antonello Migliozzi, Carmine Maffei, Emilia Allevato, Antonio Pietro Garonna, Antonio Saracino
2020 Remote Sensing  
In Mediterranean countries, in the year 2017, extensive surfaces of forests were damaged by wildfires. In the Vesuvius National Park, multiple summer wildfires burned 88% of the Mediterranean forest.  ...  Burn severity levels experienced by the Mediterranean forest communities were defined by using two quali-quantitative field-based composite burn indices (FBIs), namely the Composite Burn Index (CBI), its  ...  Acknowledgments: We are grateful to D. Ascoli, M. Vella, and I. Aletto for supporting ground sampling. We also thank S. Somma and C.  ...

SATELLITE EVIDENCE OF DECREASING RESILIENCE IN MEDITERRANEAN PLANT COMMUNITIES AFTER RECURRENT WILDFIRES

Ricardo Díaz-Delgado, Francisco Lloret, Xavier Pons, Jaume Terradas
2002 Ecology  
Increased fire frequency, as is occurring in some mediterranean-type ecosystems, may reduce ecosystem resilience, i.e., the ability to recover the pre-disturbance state.  ...  We conclude that the use of time series satellite images may help to gain further insights in postfire vegetation dynamics over large regions and long time periods.  ...  Frank Davis and two anonymous reviewers greatly helped to improve the manuscript.  ...
