Abstract: Evaluating ecological patterns and processes is crucial for the conservation of ecosystems . In this view, remote sensing is a powerful tool for monitoring their status and change. This involves several tasks like biodiversity estimate, landscape ecology, and species distribution modeling, to name a few . Due to the difficulties associated with field-based data collection , the use of remote sensing for estimating ecological status and change is promising since it provides a synoptic view of an area with a high temporal resolution . Of course in some cases remote sensing should be viewed as a help to plan a field survey rather than a replacement of it. Further, its improper use may lead to pitfalls and misleading results. [...]
