This talk will explore how satellite remote sensing is changing our capacity to monitor biodiversity and derive an ecological understanding of the natural world. Using case studies, it will highlight the diversity of approaches available to monitor species and ecosystems and illustrate the challenges currently hampering broader use. The talk will conclude with a discussion on current and future opportunities for satellite data to inform large scale biodiversity monitoring schemes, and a perspective on how satellite information may support a shift from compositional to functional conservation
