[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The damages caused by forest fires in 1998 had severe repercussions on Mexico's
natural zones. Responding to this problem, Conabio conducted a study called
"Fires in Mexico - an analysis of their threat to biodiversity." On the basis
of this experience, the program called "Program for detecting hot spots by
remote sensoring techniques" was implemented. The program was carried out in
1999, 2000, ... View entire text
