Arguments

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

Details

CAI_{CV} = cv(CAI[patch_{ij}]

where 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.

Units

Percent

Range

CAI_CV >= 0

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.

Value

tibble
