Abstract

The Sierra Nevada Mountains of California are likely to experience changes in ecosystem dynamics in coming decades as a result of multiple anthropogenic and climatic stressors. Recent advancements in remote sensing, specifically in high spatial and spectral imagery, allow for detailed, site-specific investigations of ecosystem conditions that are scalable for a comprehensive, landscape view of forest dynamics. Further development of hyperspectral imaging techniques to map bioindicator species distributions (Pinus ponderosa and Pinus jeffreyi) and physiological conditions (chlorophyll and water content) in Yosemite and Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks will help to further understand and predict changes in ecosystem dynamics under changing conditions.
