Green fractional vegetation cover (fc) is an important phenotypic factor in the fields of agriculture, forestry, and ecology. Spatially explicit monitoring of fc via relative vegetation abundance (RA) algorithms, especially those based on scaled maximum/minimum vegetation index (VI) values, has been widely investigated in remote sensing research...

In this volume, we seek to contribute to the understanding of how different kinds of values, which have been called “multiple values of nature” (we will use the initialism “MVN” for the purposes of this volume), are provided and maintained through sustainable use of biodiversity in socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS). The...
