Macroecology is the study of the relationships between organisms and their environment at large spatial scales. In recent years, remote sensing has allowed scientists to substantially expand our knowledge of drivers of biodiversity distribution and abundance. Camera traps, acoustic sensors, remote tracking devices, and satellite imagery are but a few examples of how ecological data can be sourced without in-situ direct observations. Not only has remote sensing helped resolve fundamental ecological questions, but has also been instrumental in conservation efforts.
This Collection offers a platform for original, multidisciplinary, and integrative studies providing new insights on spatial ecology, biogeography, and conservation efforts, as well as focusing on the development of new remote sensing tools for macroecological research.
