The arboreal ecosystem is vitally important to global and local biogeochemical processes, the maintenance of biodiversity in natural systems, and human health in urban environments. The ability to collect samples, observations, and data to conduct meaningful scientific research is similarly vital. The primary methods and modes of access remain limi...

Este protocolo ha sido diseñado para proveer algunas directrices sobre cómo obtener imágenes de alta resolución espacial para mapear palmeras en aguajales de la Amazonía peruana. La metodología descrita es el resultado de aplicar las recomendaciones de los fabricantes de los RPAs y de la experiencia acumulada durante los sobrevuelos realizados desd...
Technical Report
Full-text available
La tecnología de los RPAs (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) se constituye en una de las herramientas con alta proyección en el trabajo forestal para obtener imágenes de alta resolución, ampliando las posibilidades en la evaluación y monitoreo de los recursos forestales con fines de investigación o manejo. El uso de los RPAs y de la fotogrametría...

Peatland pole forest is the most carbon-dense ecosystem in Amazonia, but its spatial distribution and species composition are poorly known. To address this knowledge gap, we quantified variation in the floristic composition, peat thickness, and the amount of carbon stored above and below ground of 102 forest plots and 53 transects in northern Peruv...

Mapping plant species at the regional scale to provide information for ecologists and forest managers is a challenge for the remote sensing community. Here, we use a deep learning algorithm called U-net and very high-resolution multispectral images (0.5 m) from GeoEye satellite to identify, segment and map canopy palms over ∼3000 km 2 of Amazonian...

Sustainable management of non-timber forest products such as palm fruits is crucial for the long-term conservation of intact forest. A major limitation to expanding sustainable management of palms has been the need for precise information about the resources at scales of tens to hundreds of hectares, while typical ground-based surveys only sample s...
Article
The forests of Western Amazonia are among the most diverse tree communities on Earth, yet this exceptional diversity is distributed highly unevenly within‐ and among communities. In particular, a small number of dominant species account for the majority of individuals while the large majority of species are locally and regionally extremely scarce....

1.The forests of Amazonia are among the most biodiverse on Earth, yet accurately quantifying how species composition varies through space (i.e. beta‐diversity) remains a significant challenge. Here we use high‐fidelity airborne imaging spectroscopy from the Carnegie Airborne Observatory to quantify a key component of beta‐diversity, the distance de...
Thesis
Full-text available
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) provide a flexible method for acquiring high-resolution imagery with relative simple operation and cost-effectiveness. This technology emerged 30 years ago and it is widely used by commercial, scientific, and military communities due to its versatility. However, new technology brings new challenges. One of them is th...

1. Map the distribution and quantify the abundance of Mauritia flexuosa stems over 100 hectares within each of six communities in the northern Peruvian Amazon 2. Quantify the level of degradation (the proportion of male and female stems) of Mauritia flexuosa palm stands within each of the six communities 3. Transfer the approaches that we develop to our partner organisations, so that they are used for monitoring and support expansion of sustainable Mauritia flexuosa fruit harvesting
