Abstract

The pace at which the world's ecosystems and biodiversity of, e.g., pollinators decline is currently at a rate where it is challenging to document. In recent years, our group has made an effort to bridge the disciplines of laser remote sensing and biophotonics, and we have developed lidar methods for inventorying the biosphere. Here, we present an effective method for extracting fauna observations from atmospheric lidar data and reducing the observations to a set of descriptive parameters. Kilohertz-lidar data are used, the essential steps are walked through and a glimpse of the obtainable data product is presented.
