Abstract

Terrain influences many ecological processes. The A. introduces a protocol that automatically stratifies complex terrain. This stratification method uses image-processing techniques to cluster digital images of slope, elevation, and aspect into homogeneous groupings. The technique is demonstrated for a stratification of complex terrain disturbed by a large forest fire. By identifying terrain complexity at several spatial resolutions, the A. was able to place transects that sample terrain variability and fire severity representatively across a controlled range of scales
