About this book

Providing a suite of remote sensing-based approaches for dealing with the inventory and monitoring of protected lands around the world, this book addresses contemporary issues in monitoring, conservation planning, and ecosystem forecasting. It presents the state of the art in satellite-based remote sensing and compares protected lands with unprotected areas to measure ecosystem and environmental changes under factors such as human-induced land cover change and climate change. Case studies are included that illustrate key concepts.

Biography

Dr. Yeqiao Wang is a professor at the Department of Natural Resources Science, University of Rhode Island. He has received several awards for his work, including the prestigious Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from President William J. Clinton in 2000. Dr. Wang's specialties are terrestrial remote sensing and modeling in natural resources analysis and mapping. He has published more than 50 peer-reviewed journal articles, 70 abstracts and conference papers, and contributed more than 20 peer-reviewed book chapters. He also edited "Remote Sensing of Coastal Environments" (CRC Press 2009). Dr. Wang serves as the editor in chief for "Encyclopedia of Natural Resources" (Taylor & Francis), a three-volume set of "Land", "Air", and "Water". Besides his professional publications in English, he has also authored and edited several science books in Chinese.

Media reviews
Contributed by a group of leading and well-published scholars in the field, this book is the first to dedicate to the applications of remote sensing science and technology for inventory, monitoring, and managing of protected lands and waters. Professor Wang carefully selected and examined each contribution, and created a well-structured volume to address the use of remote sensing technology in protected lands from four perspectives, namely, changing landscape and change detection; monitoring and mapping methods; inventory and monitoring of frontier lands, and decision support for management of protected lands. This comprehensive approach allows readers to have both a systematic view of the field and a detailed knowledge of a particular topic, seeing both 'forest' and 'trees'.
