Karen's blog post on our recent lidar paper

Karen Anderson has written a really nice blog post on our recent paper "A comparison of LiDAR approaches for vegetation and landscape characterization" (published in the open access Remote Sensing in Ecology and Conservation journal). Karen's blog "Weighing up the benefits and costs of waveform LiDAR", and hosted on the ZSL blog site, outlines some of the benefits of waveform lidar for ecology. Our work shows how waveform lidar can provide habitat measurements that just aren't available any other way. Karen concludes that the next few years are likely to see an explosion in applications of waveform lidar in spatial ecology.
