Structural diversity plays a critical role in shaping ecosystem patterns and processes. Advances in remote sensing and digital technology, such as drone-based orthophotos (background) and a 3D lidar point cloud (central) derived from a mobile mapping system, allow for structural diversity to be mapped and measured in novel ways, yielding a wide range of new insights in ecology. The February Special Issue of Frontiers explores structural diversity in forest ecosystems through this advanced technology.
