dc.description.abstractI aim to determine whether or not remote sensing, through multispectral, satellite and digital photography, is a feasible and accurate method for determining drought stress in Fynbos vegetation. I hypothesize that (1) water stress in fynbos is detectable with the use of a remote sensing index, namely NDVI and (2) that the remotely sensed trends will correlate with ground truth measures of water stress.en_ZA
