Assessing the effect of environmental and anthropogenic factors on land-cover diversity in Mediterranean mountain environment

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study assesses the factors that influence land-cover diversity, including the specific contributions of environmental and anthropogenic forces in determining landscape diversity (spatial variability in climate, lithological variations and human management). The proposed model was tested in Navarra, a region with a long history of human settlement and distinct management practices, ranging from mountain communities in the Pyrenees to Mediterranean lowland cropland systems. Variance in landscape diversity was divided into environmental and human-influenced fractions, and generalized additive models within a GIS framework were used to evaluate the effects of environmental and anthropogenic factors
