Every organism reflects or absorbs the solar radiation in different wavelengths, by creating a spectral signature, namely a peculiar fingerprint in the electromagnetic spectrum.

The research has been conducted by Duccio Rocchini - C3A-Center Agricolture Food Environment, within the Project E-STaR funded by the call "I comunicatori STAR della Scienza" from the autonomous Province of Trento
