Lidar, or laser scanning data, is now captured on ground, from unoccupied aerial vehicles, aerial surveys and space, providing valuable data on tree structure (e.g. canopy height, cover, and above ground biomass).

Research is needed to develop and test methods of deriving structural traits from these different lidar sources, over a variety of Australian vegetation communities.

Modelled traits will become important inputs into government environmental monitoring programs and help improve our understanding of the ecology and population dynamics of Australian trees.
