520    This volume gathers together a representative set of 
       examples from the many varied spatial techniques and 
       analytical approaches being used by geographers, 
       ecologists, and biogeographers to study plant and animal 
       distributions, to assess processes affecting the observed 
       patterns at selected spatial and temporal scales, and to 
       discuss these examples within a strong conceptual spatial 
       and/or temporal framework. Therefore, the aims of this 
       volume are to: Identify the key spatial concepts that 
       underpin Geographic Information Science (GISc) in 
       biogeography and ecology; Review the development of these 
       spatial concepts within geography and how they have been 
       taken up in ecology and biogeography; Exemplify the use of
       the key spatial concepts underpinning GISc in biogeography
       and ecology using case studies from both vegetation 
       science and animal ecology/biogeography that cover a wide 
       range of spatial scales (from global to micro-scale) and 
       different geographical regions (from arctic to humid 
       tropical); and Develop an agenda for future research in 
       GISc, which takes into account developments in 
       biogeography and ecology, and their applications in GISc 
       including remote sensing, geographic information systems, 
       quantitative methods, spatial analysis, and data 
       visualisation. STԨe idea for GIS and Remote Sensing 
       Applications in Biogeography and Ecology arose from two 
       joint symposia organized by the Biogeography Study Group 
       of the International Geographical Union; the Biogeography,
       Remote Sensing, and GIS Specialty Groups of the 
       Association of American Geographers, and the Biogeography 
       Research Group of the Royal Geographical Society-Institute
       of British Geographers and held in Leicester and Honolulu 
       in 1999. These groups represent the majority of 
       geographers conducting research in biogeography and 
       ecology and teaching this material to geographers. While 
       this material is increasingly being covered in a variety 
       of disciplines and sub-disciplines (e.g., large-area 
       ecology, landscape ecology, remote sensing and GIS), many 
       researchers in these fields lack the training in spatial 
       concepts behind the techniques that they utilize. The 
       spatial concepts that are covered in this book are richer 
       than those found within landscape ecology at the present 
       time, and GIS and Remote Sensing Applications in 
       Biogeography and Ecology will promote the use of many of 
       these concepts among landscape ecologists. GIS and Remote 
       Sensing Applications in Biogeography and Ecology is 
       suitable as a secondary text for a graduate level course, 
       and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in 
       industry.
