Multi-scale marine biodiversity patterns inferred efficiently from habitat image processing

Camille Mellin, , Serge Andréfouët, Corey J. A. Bradshaw, &
Cost-effective proxies of biodiversity and species abundance, applicable across a range of spatial scales, are needed for setting conservation priorities and planning action. We outline a rapid, efficient, and low-cost measure of spectral signal from digital habitat images that, being an effective proxy for habitat complexity, correlates with species diversity and requires little image processing or interpretation. We validated this method for coral reefs of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), Australia, across a range of...
