The GEO Handbook was edited with contributions from over 100 authors, from all over the world, including both scientists and practitioners. It covers approaches from in-situ observations to remote sensing, to modelling biodiversity and reporting. The book was designed to provide practical guidance to broadly-defined biodiversity observation networks at all scales, but predominantly the national scale and higher. The GEO Handbook on Biodiversity Monitoring Networks is a practical how-to book with substantial policy relevance, that includes practical suggestions on how to develop biodiversity monitoring programs.
