Utilization of standard land cover classification systems for species richness estimation and mapping based on multispectral remote sensing data is proposed. The conditions of the use of the systems for highlands and plains are set. We present the results of species richness estimation carried out for the south-west part of Crimean peninsular on the basis of Landsat/ETM+.
