Introduction

Damian Schulze-Brüninghoff is working since June 2017 at the “Department of Grassland Science and Renewable Plant Resources” at the faculty  of “Organic Agricultural Sciences”. He is working in a project for “conservation and restitution of species richness in mountain meadows of the Biosphere reserve Rhön – management of the invasive large leaved lupin (Lupinus polyphyllus Lindl.)  in a complex biological reserve” (promoted by the German Federal Environmental Foundation). His core area is the development of remote sensing methods for estimating quantitative and qualitative parameters of extensive grasslands with particular provision for the abundance of L. polyphyllus. Therefore, UAV-based (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) hyperspectral sensors are used for identification of spectral characteristics and LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) systems are utilised to detect spatial characteristics.

Research Interests:

 

  • Biomass
  • Nature Conservation
  • Invasive plants
  • Grassland
  • Extensive grasslands
  • Remote Sensing
  • Hyperspectral methods
  • Multispectral methods
  • Object based methods
  • Laser methods
