Remote sensing has profound implication in ecosystem investigation and research.However,traditional multispectral remote sensing data usually focused on the mass screening.It was difficult to be used to inverse the complicated properties and biochemical parameters of ecosystem for the limitation of spectral resolution.Hyperspectral remote sensing,which measure large numbers of narrow spectral bands,could greatly improve the accuracy and types of input parameters of ecosystem models.In present study,we systemically reviewed the implication of hyperspectral remote sensing in ecosystem processes and properties based on expounding the principle and characteristics of hyperspectral remote sensing,and proposed the potential implication of hyperspectral remote sensing in ecology.

Key words:  Hyperspectral remote sensing      Ecosystem processes      Spectral characteristics
