Quantifying biodiversity is a challenging task, overall considering impervious areas. In some cases, field sampling might need an efficient way to be planned. In this view, remote sensing is a valuable tool for efficiently planning field sampling for biodiversity data gathering.
Additionally, remote sensing represents a powerful tool for predicting biodiversity spots and species community turnover, based on a number of different sensors/images at different spatial and spectral resolutions.
The aim of this Special Issue is to focus on theoretical and empirical research to face biodiversity-related issues, based on remote sensing data.
We encourage researchers to send their manuscript on the following topics:
- the theory behind the use of remote sensing for biodiversity study
- macroecology and remote sensing
- remote sensing for the improvement of the efficiency of sampling design
- empirical evidence on the relationship between field and remote sensing information on biodiversity
- species distribution modeling
- species invasions, tracked by remote sensing and remotely sensed variables

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Diversity is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
