Welcome to the High-Latitude Drone Ecology Network (HiLDEN)

We are network of high-latitude ecologists using drones to answer ecological questions across 20 sites spanning 7 Arctic nations. Our aims are to facilitate the development and synthesis of mesoscale Arctic research through sharing protocols and field expertise to improve the collection of drone remotely-sensed data in tundra ecosystems.


Established by Jeff Kerby and Isla Myers-Smith.
