A PhD student at the University of Leeds has developed a fast, accurate and inexpensive method of creating detailed vegetation community maps over very large areas, by coupling aerial photographs with data from maps. Working in partnership with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, Ute Bradter from Leeds' Faculty of Biological Sciences, has collated existing data (such as soil type, altitude, slope and aspect) and using a sophisticated statistical model, predicted the distribution of...

A binational team is studying whether running the Yuma Desalting Plant will affect Mexico's Cienega de Santa Clara, the largest wetland on the Colorado River Delta. The cienega, a 15,000-acre wetland, is home to several endangered species and is a major stopover for birds migrating north and south along the Pacific Flyway. The desalting plant, or YDP, is scheduled to begin its latest trial run May 3. "The plant will use U.S. agricultural runoff that would otherwise flow to this Mexican...

Australia has been stripped bare of vegetation to expose the surface that lies beneath. Scientists from CSIRO's Water for a Healthy Country Flagship have removed approximately 90 percent of Australia's vegetation cover from satellite images of the continent to produce the most detailed available Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of its topography. "The DEM will revolutionize geological applications, land-use studies, soil science, and much more," CSIRO's Dr John Gallant said in an address today...
