Application of Remote Sensing and GIS Technologies for Biodiversity Management

According to FAO (1981), land is composed of several natural resources such as soils, climate, water, vegetation, people as well as animals. Remote-sensing and geographic information sytems (GIS) technologies are the most cost-effective techniques for providing information for land resource management, including biodiversity. Remote-sensing is commonly defined as a technique of collecting information (using a sensor) about an object without coming into physical contact with the object (Rees, 1990)
