An efficient conservation planning is contingent upon assessment and mapping of biological diversity to identify the local, regional and global hot spots (Wilson, 2000). The existing methods to map biodiversity on a large spatial scale are time consuming as they require intensive ground surveys. In this paper we demonstrate the use of remote sensing imagery to assess and map the biodiversity in a tropical ecosystem and discuss the use of this technique in monitoring as well as conservation planning.
