Abstract

Based on this review the AA. examine the potential for a national biodiversity monitoring system for Canada driven by remote sensing, with the aim of producing recommendations that are transferable for regional or continental applications. A combination of direct and indirect approaches is proposed, with 4 selected key indicators of diversity that can be derived from Earth observation data : productivity, disturbance, topography, and land cover. Monitoring these indicators through time at an ecosystem level has the potential to provide a national early warning system, indicating were areas of potential biodiversity change may be occurring
