Title:
Explore the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function at different scales by combining satellite data with in situ data and models
Status:
Open
Creation Year:

Completion Date:
2022 Q4 (558 days remaining)
Description:

This work will explore the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function at different scales by combining satellite data (primarily Landsat and Sentinel-2) with in situ data and models. It will utilize several remote sensing-based Essential Biodiversity Variables (EBVs), specifically, the Ecosystem Structure EBV “Ecosystem Distribution” (from which habitat fragmentation and connectivity can be derived), and the Ecosystem Function EBV “Primary Productivity”, both of which are based on remotely sensed data. Understanding this relationship is essential for several SDGs and is critical for ecosystem management and accurate forecasting models, but also advances the application of satellite data for monitoring and managing ecosystem function and the services ecosystems provide to humans. The result of this study, which will be led by the Quebec Centre for Biodiversity Science in close collaboration with GEO BON’s Working Groups and Biodiversity Observation Networks, will be captured in a peer-reviewed open-access publication and in freely available software, workflows and methodology.
