Remote sensing can help to understand where species live and it also
provides measures of diversity such as species richness.
Remote sensing can
make available environmental information as well as the history of the
landscape which can be used to explain both the biodiversity patterns as
well as the abundance or composition of species.
In terms of conservation, it needs timely historical information in
order to keep a continuous record of protected areas or definenew areas for
conservation priorities.Remote sensing can also help to map all settlements,
agriculture fields or roads in order to anticipate human-wildlife conflicts.
Although extinctions of species have always occurred, in recent times
human activities have greatly increased the rate at which extinctions occur.
It is hoped that with more awareness humans will take steps to actively
preserve the rare and exotic species for the future generations.
technology would be increasingly employed to prevent the species from coming
to any harm in the future.
