Stanford scientists used tree cover maps and on-the-ground observations to measure biodiversity in Costa Rica. The results generated a method of modeling biodiversity across tropical landscapes. Chase Mendenhall, a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Gretchen's lab, is the lead author of the study, which will be published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
