Animal movement is critical for maintenance of ecosystem services and biodiversity. The study of complex movement patterns and of the factors that control such patterns is essential to inform conservation research and environmental management. Technological advances have greatly increased our ability to track, study, and manage animal movements. But analyzing and contextualizing vast amounts of… Read More

We started to organise our next AniMove. Analysis of animal movement and remote sensing data for conservation will be covered by this 2 weeks science school. Only OpenSource software such as R, QGIS and GRASS will be used. More information at animove.org  … Read More


We started again to organise our 10 day excursion into the Nationalpark Bavarian Forest learning how to apply remote sensing in biodiversity research. The 10 day course consists of learning field measurements such as LCCS spectrometer measurements LAI GPS and map interpretation etc. as well as working with a variety of remotely sensed data such… Read More
