We have developed a vegetation monitoring lidar called a laser-induced fluorescence spectrum (LIFS) lidar which is able to get the living status of plants by observing their fluorescence remotely. The features of its operation are; daytime observations possible even outdoors, mobility and self-sufficiency, capability of mapping plant living information, and a user-friendly operation by unifying the controls of different equipment of the lidar using software. These features make observations by our LIFS lidar possible at any time and any place. In forest observations, we could depict three-dimensional structures of fluorescence spectrums. We also discuss in this work the possibility of monitoring other plant physiological information such as the concentration of chlorophyll and photosynthesis secondary metabolites in this work.
