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

We are network of high-latitude ecologists using drones to answer ecological questions across 42 landscapes sites spanning all 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.
