Drones for Ecology and Conservation
Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS), a.k.a. drones, are emerging as an important tool for conservation and ecological research. For the past several years I have collaborated with ConservationDrones.org to explore new ways that drones can benefit conservation projects and organizations. I also use aerial photography (from kites and drones) in my own work studying tundra dynamics in the arctic. These projects involve numerous collaborators and interdisciplinary approaches.
