This paper examined the
questions of ......
Can ESBS be restored by fire?
Can we compare Ground-based
quadrat surveys of 1% of the site with Aerial Surveys of the same
Can we extrapolate to the entire site from the survey of
The conclusions were that ...
* Plant species were
identifiable from drone imagery by inspection & possibly by
