Abstract

Rapid deforestation in Mexico, when coupled with poor access to current and consistent ecological information across the country underscores the need for an ecological classification system that can be readily updated as new data become available. In this study, regional vegetation resources in Mexico were evaluated using remotely sensed information. Multitemporal Global Vegetation Index (GVI) data from Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer images provided ecological information at regional scales by being interpreted as phenological patterns of vegetation productivity and seasonality.
