Patterns of correlation among landscape metrics

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aim of this research is to gain a better understanding of the effects of spatial representation in landscape ecology. Nine hundred artificial landscapes were generated with varying spatial patterns created using a fractal landscape generator with 3D fractal dimensions ranging from 2.1 to 2.9. The 3D landscapes were reduced to 2D patterns by putting the cells into 5 classes. Forty-four landscape metrics were used to measure the resulting 2D landscape spatial patterns, and the relations of 9 of these to the generating 3D fractal dimensions and to each other across these fractal dimensions were analysed
