lsm_l_core_mn(
  landscape,
  directions = 8,
  consider_boundary = FALSE,
  edge_depth = 1
)

Arguments

landscape

Raster* Layer, Stack, Brick, SpatRaster (terra), stars, or a list of rasterLayers.

directions

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

consider_boundary

Logical if cells that only neighbour the landscape boundary should be considered as core

edge_depth

Distance (in cells) a cell has the be away from the patch edge to be considered as core cell

Details

CORE_{MN} = mean(CORE[patch_{ij}])

where CORE[patch_{ij}] is the core area in square meters of each patch.

CORE_MN is a 'Core area metric' and equals the mean of core areas of all patches in the landscape. The core area is defined as all cells that have no neighbour with a different value than themselves (rook's case).

Units

Hectares

Range

CORE_MN >= 0

Behaviour

Equals CORE_MN = 0 if CORE = 0 for all patches. Increases, without limit, as the core area indices increase.

Value

tibble
