This paper evaluates the recent use of remote sensing in landscape ecology. First, to provide an overview of current practice, 438 research papers published in the journal Landscape Ecology for the years 2004—2008 were examined for information about use of remote sensing. Selected case studies are then presented that illustrate the potential value of using diverse remote sensing data together with ecological field data, as an integrated approach to landscape ecology research. Finally, the future development of landscape ecology as a predictive scientific discipline is considered, with particular reference to the potential role of remote sensing
