The three primary plant strategies proposed by Phil Grime (competitive ability, adaptation to severe stress and adaptation to disturbance) can be mapped using airborne imaging spectroscopy. This provides the opportunity to assess spatial patterns in ecosystem functioning. The approach works because strategies are closely linked to plant traits and canopy properties with relevance to reflectance.
