To conserve and manage wetland resources, it is important to inventoryand monitor wetlands and their adjacent uplands. Satellite remote sensing hasseveral advantages for monitoring wetland resources, especially for largegeographic areas. This review summarizes the literature on satellite remotesensing of wetlands, including what classification techniques(More)
Fuzzy cognitive mapping was used to develop a participatory ecosystem management plan for Uluabat Lake, Turkey. Interviews were conducted with stakeholders belonging to six different groups. Lake pollution was the most central and most mentioned variable for stakeholders. Stakeholder groups agree that lake pollution is negatively affecting ecosystem health(More)
12 We review the use of artificial neural networks, particularly the feedforward multilayer 13 perceptron with back-propagation for training (MLP), in ecological modelling. In MLP 14 modeling, there are no assumptions about the underlying form of the data that must be met as 15 in standard statistical techniques. Instead the researchers should make clear(More)
17 Separate artificial neural network (ANN) models were developed from data in 18 two geographical regions and years apart for a marsh-nesting bird, the red-winged 19 blackbird Agelaius phoeniceus. Each model was independently tested on the spatially and 20 temporally distinct data from the other region to determine how generalizable it was. The 21 first(More)
