The structure of landscapes subject to patch-forming catastrophic disturbances, or “disturbance landscapes”, is controlled by the characteristics of the disturbance regime, including the distribution of disturbance sizes and intervals, and the rotation time. The primary landscape structure in disturbance landscapes is the structure of the mosaic of disturbance patches, which can be described by indices such as patch size and shape. The purpose of this research was to use a geographical… CONTINUE READING
