Introducing the Book “The Roles of Remote Sensing in Nature Conservation”

Ricardo Díaz-delgado, Clive Hurford, Richard Lucas

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Although many books describe recent advances in remote sensing, there is a gap in the market for a book dedicated to the application of remote sensing to aid nature conservation. Our activities in training workshops and seminars with conservation managers and practitioners have clarified their requirements, particularly in relation to the low transferability of remote sensing tools in their day to day work. Here, we outline each chapter and present the results of a survey carried out in the context of a workshop on remote sensing tools for conservation management. We provide the original questions and answers which support the common narrative found in the different conservation forums: a need for examples of good practice in the application of remote sensing tools.
