Project summary:
More and more, ‘spectra’ of light’s reflectance across wavelengths from the surface of plant tissues are becoming an essential tool for monitoring plant function over large scales, especially when measured from aircraft or satellites. However, the range of ways that real plant spectra vary are still not well understood, hindering their interpretation. We propose to bring together large, diverse datasets of leaf and canopy spectra to identify and interpret the major dimensions of plant spectral variation.

In-person participants: Julia Joswig (Leipzig University (UL)), Teja Kattenborn (University of Freiburg), Shan Kothari (Université du Québec à Montréal), Swapna Mahanand (Leipzig University (UL)), M.
