Can we use remote sensing technology as a practical short-cut to explore trait-mediated ecosystem functioning impacts?

Author Kenny Helsen discusses recently published Journal of Ecology article: Optical traits perform equally well as directly‐measured functional traits in explaining the impact of an invasive plant on litter decomposition by Helsen et al. Discover whether the optical traits of an invasive plant species can be used to explain their ecosystem impacts. Is the data…

Remote sensing as a tool to determine population genetics

Blonder et al. just had their paper entitled “Remote sensing of ploidy level in quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.)” published in Journal of Ecology. In this blog post, Benjamin Blonder explains how remote sensing can be used to determine population genetics of aspen in the Rocky Mountains (Colorado, USA). Can you tell much about the genetics of…
