Using UAV technology to map plant physiology in urban landscapes

Updated: about 3 hours ago
Location: Mount Lawley, WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Deadline: ;

Project Outline:

Remnant bushland is of high conservation value, particularly within urban environments but it is within these environments that plant health is most at risk Monitoring the health of remnant bushland areas is resource intensive. High spatial resolution UAV data provides a mechanism to determine plant health, at the sub canopy scale. This project will focus on the use of UAV technology to determine a number of plant physiology metrics which will inform management practices within an A clss reserve within Perth.

Project Area: Plant Physiology/Remote Sensing
