Assessing mutuality of change in soil and vegetation patch pattern characteristics by means of Cellular Automata simulation

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Five landscape metrics were employed to characterize complementary soil and vegetation patterns of patches over a wide range of densities. These metrics were calculated for a large number of modeled patterns based on a Cellular Automata technique, employing four separate vegetation spread strategies at different adhesive growth levels. As indicated by the data, mutual variations in the soil and vegetation metrics allow differentiation between the pattern evolution stages such as perforation, dissection, fragmentation, shrinkage and attrition of one surface type due to the spread, expansion and aggregation of a complementary surface type
