Landscape configuration and composition analysis with GRASS GIS 7

Landscape configuration and composition metrics summarize the structure of the landscape in a determined area and time. These metrics  are closely related to the occurring ecological patterns (e.g. species distribution) and processes (e.g. biogeochemical cycle). As a consequence they are often used as predictors in ecological modelling. Thereby, a researcher who wants to test whether or not the landscape structure has an influence on the studied ecological properties (i.e., species richness, ecosystem functioning, conservation status, energy flow, animal movements, species dispersion, etc), need a tool to derive them from a Land Use or Land Cover (LULC) map.
