Journal of Geophysical Research: Biogeosciences

This special section stems from three sessions focusing on the “Remote Characterization of Vegetation Structure” that were held at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in December 2006, San Francisco. The sessions were well attended with more than 40 abstracts covering a range of poster and oral presentations.
