Biodiversity Observation from Space

Limiting factors for plant growth

A high biodiversity is important for a stable biological system. It is therefore important to preserve and promote biodiversity. Under the influence of climate change and increased human pressure on natural habitats, observing changes in biodiversity is fundamental. Long-term and global documentation provides policy makers with important tools to protect the planet's ecosystem. It is only through satellite observations that the development of vegetation, climatic changes such as temperature or water availability over several years can be observed.
