Geoinformatics for Tropical Ecosystems

P.S. Roy (Editor)
Synopsis Most of the world's ecosystems are in a state of constant change at various spatial and temporal scales by a variety of socio-economic and environmental factors. The changes today particularly in Tropical Ecosystems are more extensive and occur at faster rate than ever before. It has impacted the alterations in biodiversity, hydrological and biogeochemical cycle. The developments in the geoinformatics provide opportunity to gather information on ecosystems in space and time for vast range of scientific discipline. The book brings out work carried out in tropical for assessment and monitoring of forests, biodiversity, agricultural system, wet lands, coastal resources and glaciers. In this issue we intend to cover the applications of geospatial tools in a wide range of tropical ecosystems that are concerned with land surface conditions and processes. The emphasizes on: A conceptual guide to ecosystem approaches and management in tropics. Covers an entire spectrum of tropical ecosystems, their issues and management. Provides latest development of geospatial technology and applications for vegetation science, environment, biodiversity, agriculture, forestry and socio-economic aspects. A ready reference for the students, teachers and researchers working for tropical ecosystems. The book advocates the development and application of geoinformatics for the Tropical Ecosystem Management as a vital tool that retains its importance for monitoring, assessment and decision-making. The chapters included in this book encompass wide range of themes, viz., land use/cover databases, forest and its processes, soil resources, agricultural systems, grassland ecosystem, hydrology, wetlands, glaciers and looking forward for the urban and community GIS. The application of remote sensing tool has been demonstrated for the aforesaid ecosystems.
