The principles of radiation physics for plant ecophysiological studies are outlined with an emphasis on choosing appropriate sensors for specific purposes such as for studies of photosynthesis, UV-B damage or canopy energy balance. Remote sensing, both from the ground and from aircraft or satellites, is increasingly being used as a tool for the study of plant canopies. Therefore, relevant terminology and applications are discussed, including the use of remote sensing for the determination of canopy structural properties and the use of thermal remote sensing for the measurement of canopy temperature, for example, in energy balance studies.
