Biome-Scale Forest Properties in Amazonia Based on Field and Satellite Observations

  title={Biome-Scale Forest Properties in Amazonia Based on Field and Satellite Observations},
  author={Liana Oighenstein Anderson},
  journal={Remote Sensing},
Amazonian forests are extremely heterogeneous at different spatial scales. This review intends to present the large-scale patterns of the ecosystem properties of Amazonia, and focuses on two parts of the main components of the net primary production: the long-lived carbon pools (wood) and short-lived pools (leaves). First, the focus is on forest biophysical properties, and secondly, on the macro-scale leaf phenological patterns of these forests, looking at field measurements and bringing into… CONTINUE READING
