Drone-based remote sensing as a novel tool to assess restoration trajectory at fine-scale by identifying and monitoring seedling emergence and performance
MetadataShow full item record
While Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have existed for decades, it is only in the last ten years that small, commercially available UAVs have become a readily accessible tool. While they have been frequently used in agricultural monitoring, restoration efforts lag behind in the use of UAVs in monitoring. This thesis seeks to identify and address key knowledge gaps in the use of UAVs in restoration monitoring, and to propose the future of restoration monitoring.

Restoration goals: Why are fauna still overlooked in the process of recovering functioning ecosystems and what can be done about it?Cross, Sophie ; Bateman, Bill ; Cross, Adam (2020)Despite the evidence that fauna play complex and critical roles in ecosystems (e.g. pollination and nutrient cycling) and the knowledge that they need to be considered in restoration, fauna often remain poorly represented ...
