```#' CAI_CV (landscape level)
#'
#' @description Coefficient of variation of core area index (Core area metric)
#'
#' @param landscape Raster* Layer, Stack, Brick, SpatRaster (terra), stars, or a list of rasterLayers.
#' @param directions The number of directions in which patches should be
#' connected: 4 (rook's case) or 8 (queen's case).
#' @param consider_boundary Logical if cells that only neighbour the landscape
#' boundary should be considered as core
#' @param edge_depth Distance (in cells) a cell has the be away from the patch
#' edge to be considered as core cell
#'
#' @details
#' \deqn{CAI_{CV} = cv(CAI[patch_{ij}]}
#' where \eqn{CAI[patch_{ij}]} is the core area index of each patch.
#'
#' CAI_CV is a 'Core area metric'. The metric summarises the landscape
#' as the Coefficient of variation of the core area index of all patches
#' in the landscape. The core area index is the percentage of core area
#' in relation to patch area. A cell is defined as core area if the cell has
#' no neighbour with a different value than itself (rook's case). The metric
#' describes the differences among all patches in the landscape. Because it is
#' scaled to the mean, it is easily comparable.
#'
#' \subsection{Units}{Percent}
#' \subsection{Range}{CAI_CV >= 0}
#' \subsection{Behaviour}{Equals CAI_CV = 0 if the core area index is identical for
#' all patches. Increases, without limit, as the variation of the core area
#' indices increases.}
