Martin Hais, Jan Wild, Luděk Berec, Josef Brůna, Robert Kennedy, Justin Braaten, Zdeněk Brož
2016 Remote Sensing  
The pre-disturbance spectral trajectories are valuable not only for assessing the risk of bark beetle infestation, but also for detection of long-term gradual changes even in non-forest ecosystems.  ...  In this study we introduce pre-disturbance spectral trajectories from Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) imagery as an indicator of long-term stress into models of bark beetle infestation together with commonly  ...  We have also identified two groups of environmental factors important for prediction of bark beetle infestation risk.  ...
