Short summary
The current article focuses on plant diversity assessment in arid environments. Species richness and species evenness equations were used to meet the objectives. Remote sensing techniques were used to detect normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) temporal changes. Two datasets were used to realize the NDVI, and post-chance detection (PCC) techniques were used to evaluate plant diversity status over a period of 4 years. The results show a recognizable loss in plant biodiversity.
