lsm_c_area_sd | R Documentation |

Standard deviation of patch area (Area and edge metric)

```
lsm_c_area_sd(landscape, directions = 8)
```

`landscape` |
A categorical raster object: SpatRaster; Raster* Layer, Stack, Brick; stars or a list of SpatRasters |

`directions` |
The number of directions in which patches should be connected: 4 (rook's case) or 8 (queen's case). |

`AREA_{SD} = sd(AREA[patch_{ij}])`

where `AREA[patch_{ij}]`

is the area of each patch in hectares.

AREA_SD is an 'Area and Edge metric'. The metric summarises each class as the standard deviation of all patch areas belonging to class i. The metric describes the differences among patches of the same class i in the landscape.

Because the metric is based on distances or areas please make sure your data
is valid using `check_landscape`

.

Hectares

AREA_SD >= 0

Equals AREA_SD = 0 if all patches are identical in size. Increases, without limit, as the variation of patch areas increases.
