`landscape` |
Raster* Layer, Stack, Brick 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 |

*DCORE_{MN} = mean(NCORE[patch_{ij}])*

where *NCORE[patch_{ij}]* is the number of core areas.

DCORE_MN is an 'Core area metric'. It summarises each class as the mean of all patch areas belonging to class i. A cell is defined as core if the cell has no neighbour with a different value than itself (rook's case). NCORE counts the disjunct core areas, whereby a core area is a 'patch within the patch' containing only core cells.

None

DCORE_MN > 0

Equals DCORE_MN = 0 if NCORE = 0 for all patches. Increases, without limit, as the number of disjunct core areas increases.
