Human population growth and resource consumption are placing enormous pressures on natural ecosystems. We are interested in how and why the world’s forests are changing and using our research to inform conservation policy.

Lorenzlidar project

The main goal of this research is to develop an objective methodology for monitoring forest structural complexity by airborne laser scanning (ALS) remote sensing. See more about the Lorenzlidar project.
