Journal of Vegetation Science is a leading journal in publishing research into functional attributes/functional types, and also into remote sensing of vegetation. Schmidtlein et al. draw these two together and this paper leads the way towards more ecologically-focused use of remote sensing. Sebastian Schmidtlein has been a leader in vegetation mapping research, and since his paper was accepted he has become an Associate Editor of the two IAVS journals.
