Mapping Mediterranean Wetlands With Remote Sensing: A Good-Looking Map Is Not Always a Good Map

Abstract

Wetlands are a key habitat within the Mediterranean biodiversity hotspot and provide important ecosystem services for hum Remote sensing (RS) has significantly boosted our ability to monitor changes in Mediterranean wetlands, especially in areas w information is being collected. However, its application to wetlands has sometimes been flawed with uncertainties and unreco large extent due to the inherent and specific ecological characteristics of Mediterranean wetlands. We present here an overvi the art on RS techniques for mapping and monitoring Mediterranean wetlands, and the remaining challenges: delineating and habitat types; mapping water dynamics inside wetlands; and detecting actual wetland trends over time in a context of high, n most important lessons learned are that ecologists' knowledge need to be integrated with RS expertise to achieve a valua approach of these ecosystems.
