Trees Have a Heartbeat – Lidar Proves It

Scientist Diana Beresford Kroeger proved that the biochemistry of humans and that of plants and trees are the same – ie the hormones (including serotonin) that regulate human and plant life are identical. What this means practically is that trees … Continue reading

Vegetation Classification Using Lidar and Hyperspectral

Abstract: The sparse canopy cover and large contribution of bright background soil, along with the heterogeneous vegetation types in close proximity, are common challenges for dryland vegetation classification with remote sensing. Consequently, the results of a single classification algorithm or … Continue reading
