Tools for biodiversity quantification and mapping

Direct measurement of biodiversity is usually too time, money and knowledge demanding to be performed. Hence, when mapping and monitoring biodiversity there is usually need to use surrogate measures i.e. biodiversity indicators. We study the ecological reliability and cost-effectiveness of different environmental and biological indicators using both empirical and modelling approaches. We also explore innovative approaches to monitor wild bee communities and habitat resource availability using advanced photogrammetric and remote-sensing tools.
