One of the main ways we can do to track ecosystem status is by looking at its extent change over time, as decreasing extent is associated with reduced carrying capacity, niche diversity, and resources, leading to increased competition, predation, and threats. In our recent study, we demonstrated a new method of using satellite data to … More New paper: Estimating changes and trends in ecosystem extent with dense time‐series satellite remote sensing
