High-tech maps of tropical forest diversity identify new conservation targets

New remote sensing maps of the forest canopy in Peru identify new regions for conservation effort. Scientists used airborne laser-guided imaging spectroscopy, to identify preservation targets by undertaking a new approach to study global ecology — one that links a forest’s variety of species to the strategies for survival and growth employed by canopy trees and other plants.
