About the Book
Reed habitats are multi-functional ecotopes characterised by a unique diversity of plant and animal life. Their enormous ecological values are more and more spoiled by impacts of economical regional development such as the expansion of industry and agriculture, of tourism, road transport infrastructure and subsequently by various forms of environmental pollution. There is an urgent need for the establishment of balanced management strategies taking into account spatial planning for both nature conservation as well as sustainable regional development. Reliable methodologies of spatial monitoring and mapping of reed stands provide the baseline for any kind of measures both in terms of conservation as well as in terms of sustainable resource management. Spatial data acquisition over large wetland areas is essentially supported by hybrid methods of airborne and spaceborne remote sensing coupled with detailed ground sampling. Various sensor systems and image types cover a wide range of different spectral bands and provide very high geometric resolution of ground land cover and land use. The operational application of those systems and methodologies for detailed mapping of wetland vegetation in general and reed plant communities in particular both in space as well as in time (time series) is still at the dawn. Nevertheless a steadily growing number of related activities is set up by different administrative and research institutions since a few years.

 

The editors
Prof. Elmar Csaplovics, born 18 May 1956 in Eisenstadt (Austria), studied and worked at the Technische Universität Wien till 1982 (doctorate in remote sensing), worked as a senior scientist at the Burgenland State Institute of Ecological Research Neusiedler See on environmental monitoring of protected regions with special regard to the Neusiedler See - Seewinkel transboundary region from 1987-1988, as a senior research fellow at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRA) Montpellier on land degradation assessment and analysis from 1988-1989, as a senior research fellow at the Department of Geomatics, Free University of Berlin, on desertification monitoring in the African Sahel from 1989-1993 (habilitation in 1992) and as a university professor of remote sensing at the Technische Universität Dresden since 1993. Prof. Csaplovics held a visiting professorship at the University College London in 2007 and is actually - among many other scientific activities - involved in research in international cooperation on spatio-temporal monitoring and management of transboundary protected areas and regions with special regard to transnational ecological networks.

Jana Schmidt, born in 1980, studied Geodesy at the Technische Universität Dresden from 1999 to 2005. Since 2005 she is working as a scientific officer at the Institute of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing at the Technische Universität Dresden. She was involved in several projects at the chair of Remote Sensing, recently in the project “Schilfkartierung Neusiedler See”, where the Austrian part of the reed belt of Lake Neusiedl was classified.


Editorial
Reed habitats are multi-functional ecotopes characterised by a unique diversity of plant and animal life. Their enormous ecological values are more and more spoiled by impacts of economical regional development such as the expansion of industry and agriculture, of tourism, road transport infrastructure and subsequently by various forms of environmental pollution. There is an urgent need for the establishment of balanced management strategies taking into account spatial planning for both nature conservation as well as sustainable regional development. Reliable methodologies of spatial monitoring and mapping of reed stands provide the baseline for any kind of measures both in terms of conservation as well as in terms of sustainable resource management. Spatial data acquisition over large wetland areas is essentially supported by hybrid methods of airborne and spaceborne remote sensing coupled with detailed ground sampling. Various sensor systems and image types cover a wide range of different spectral bands and provide very high geometric resolution of ground land cover and land use. The operational application of those systems and methodologies for detailed mapping of wetland vegetation in general and reed plant communities in particular both in space as well as in time (time series) is still at the dawn. Nevertheless a steadily growing number of related activities is set up by different administrative and research institutions since a few years.
The International Symposium on Advanced Methods of Monitoring Reed Habitats in Europe was organised by the Department of Geosciences of the Technische Universität Dresden, Chair of Remote Sensing, the National Park Administrative Authority Neusiedler See - Seewinkel, the Research Station Neusiedler See and the Austrian League of Nature Conservation. It was held from 25 - 26 November 2010 at the Information Centre of the Nationalpark Neusiedler See - Seewinkel in Illmitz (Austria).
The symposium aimed to bring together experts in reed mapping with special regard to the application of remote sensing with experts in the fields of wetland ecology, explicitly of vegetation sciences, limnology, ornithology, ichthyology and hydrology, but also and especially with stakeholders in nature conservation and sustainable resource management. The spectrum of targeted topics of the symposium covered any kind of interdisciplinary research which already takes - or could take - advantage of remote sensing of reed habitats. Contributions covered a thematic focus on the subsequent topics:
-     analysis and modelling of structural parameters of reed stands
-    assessment of patterns of correlation with faunistic data, with limnological and hydrological factors and with dynamics of interaction of water in the reed stands
-    strategies of sustainable resource management of reed habitats
Nowadays spatio-temporal research oftentimes suffers from the opposite phenomenon than did the topographers in the past, i.e. from an overflow of spatio-temporal information. More topographic and thematic data on European reed areas is available, but there is an increasing lack in valorisation of the quantities of data towards qualitatively accurate information. A positive impetus is recently given by scientifically sound missions and related research in methodological and applied research in spatio-temporal monitoring of reed in general and of the application of remote sensing for detailed reed habitat mapping, assessment and analysis in particular. A call for action for increasing activities in reed monitoring for establishment of an ecological and economical balance is urgently needed. The rate of loss of wetlands and undisturbed shorelines is increasing at European as well as at a global level. The outcomes of the symposium are intended to contribute to raising awareness for the importance of reed as a significant feature of those landscapes and as an initial ecotope supporting sustainable regional development.
