lsm_l_siei(landscape, directions)

## S3 method for class 'RasterLayer'
lsm_l_siei(landscape, directions = 8)

## S3 method for class 'RasterStack'
lsm_l_siei(landscape, directions = 8)

## S3 method for class 'RasterBrick'
lsm_l_siei(landscape, directions = 8)

## S3 method for class 'stars'
lsm_l_siei(landscape, directions = 8)

## S3 method for class 'list'
lsm_l_siei(landscape, directions = 8)

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).

Details

SIEI = \frac{1 - ∑ \limits_{i = 1}^{m} P_{i}^{2}} {1 - \frac{1} {m}}

where P_{i} is the proportion of class i and m is the number of classes.

SIEI is a 'Diversity metric'. The metric is widely used in biodiversity and ecology. It is the ratio between the actual Simpson's diversity index and the theoretical maximum Simpson's diversity index.

Units

None

Range

0 < SIEI <= 1

Behaviour

Equals SIEI = 0 when only one patch is present and approaches SIEI = 1 when the number of class types increases while the proportions are equally distributed

Value

tibble
