The work of conservation biology has grown from local studies of single species into a discipline concerned with mapping and managing biodiversity on a global scale. Remote sensing, using satellite and aerial imaging to measure and map the environment, increasingly provides a vital tool for effective collection of the information needed to research and set policy for conservation priorities. The perceived complexities of remotely sensed data and analyses have tended to discourage scientists and managers from using this valuable resource. This text focuses on making remote sensing tools accessible to a larger audience of non-specialists, highlighting strengths and limitations while emphasizing the ways that remotely sensed data can be captured and used, especially for evaluating human impacts on ecological systems.

MEDIA REVIEWS
If you are either contemplating the use of remote sensing approaches or requiring guidance in the interpretation of data obtained by this suite of methods, this book, well-illustrated in colour, is likely to be what you need ... [This] is an authoritative and pragmatic text, produced with potential and actual users in mind. * Biodiversity and Conservation *
Horning et al successfully achieve their main goal of making the technical discipline of remote sensing accessible to a new audience. The text is supported by invaluable colour diagrams and images to bring the more technical aspects to life. This contribution to the 'Techniques in Ecology and Conservation' series will be of great use to advanced undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers and practitioners. * Sarah Taylor, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society *
