Spectral Variability within Species and its Effects on Savanna Tree Species Discrimination
Differences in within-species phenology and structure driven by factors including topography, edaphic properties, and climatic variables present important challenges for species differentiation with remote sensing in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. The objective of this study was to examine probable factors including intraspecies spectral variability and the spectral sample size that could affect remote sensing of Savanna tree species across a land-use gradient in the Kruger National park. Eighteen species were examined: Acacia gerradii, Acacia nigrescens, Combretum apiculatum, Combretum collinum, Combretum hereroense, Combretum imberbe, Combretum zeyheri, Dichrostachys cinerea, Euclea sp (E. divinurum and E. natalensis, Gymnosporia sp (G. buxifolia and G. senegalensis), Lonchocarpus capassa, Peltoforum africanum, Piliostigma thonningii, Pterocarpus rotundifolia, Sclerocarya birrea, Strychnos sp (S. madagascariensis, S. usambarensis), Terminalia sericea and Ziziphus mucronata....
