Evaluating ecological patterns and processes is crucial for ecosystem conservation. In this view, remote sensing is a powerful tool for monitoring ecosystem status and change, involving several tasks like biodiversity estimate, landscape ecology, species distribution modeling.
The aim of this special issue is to publish straightforward research or review papers on the matter in order to stimulate further discussion on the potential of remote sensing in the ecological framework.
