lsm_l_rprR Documentation

RPD (landscape level)

Description

Relative patch richness (Diversity metric)

Usage

lsm_l_rpr(landscape, classes_max = NULL, verbose = TRUE)

Arguments

landscape

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

classes_max

Potential maximum number of present classes

verbose

Print warning message if not sufficient patches are present

Details

RPR = \frac{m} {m_{max}} * 100

where m is the number of classes and m_{max} is the (theoretical) maximum number of classes.

RPR is an 'Diversity metric'. The metric calculates the percentage of present classes in the landscape in relation to a (theoretical) number of maximum classes. The user has to specify the maximum number of classes. Note, that if classes_max is not provided, the functions returns NA.

Units

Percentage

Ranges

0 < RPR <= 100

Behaviour

Approaches RPR > 0 when only one class type is present, but the maximum number of classes is large. Equals RPR = 100 when m = m_max

Value

tibble
