Combining remote sensing and statistical spatial modelling for conservation and biodiversity research is resulting in an increased understanding of species-environment relationships.
In order to increase the knowledge how to apply and combine these methods for conservation and biodiversity policy a Summer School on Animal Movement & Remote Sensing for Conservation and Biodiversity research will take place in August 2013.
The dead-line for applications to the AniMove 2013 summer school on analysing animal movement and remote sensing data for conservation is approaching. Applications need to be submitted by the end of March.
This Summer School provides participants with profound knowledge of remote sensing and species distribution and animal movement for conservation. It includes courses on the theoretical background as well as hand-on exercises ranging from animal tracking, land cover and species distribution analysis to analysing and modeling of animal movement in conjunction with ecologically relevant remote sensing data sets.
The results will be discussed and interpreted within the aims of CMS and others.
