Title: ISS observations offer insights into plant function

Technologies on the International Space Station will provide ~1 year of synchronous observations of ecosystem composition, structure and function, in 2018. Here, we discuss these instruments and how they can be used to constrain global models and improve our understanding of the current state of terrestrial ecosystems.
