Plant spectral diversity as an integrator and predictor of community-level taxonomic and functional diversity
Within the CABO project (Canadian Airborne Biodiversity Observatory), I aim to model community-level taxonomic and functional diversity using hyperspectral remote sensing data within and across different Canadian ecosystems.
