Abstract

In this IMAGINE Cookbook n° 2 ‘Assessing GI vulnerability to ecosystem degradation at the landscape scale’ (Heremans and De Blust 2020 – this report) we present a methodology to calculate the vulnerability of landscape patches to disturbances caused by external pressures. For this, we use landscape metrics because they can be assessed at the landscape scale and they are related to a general potential of a habitat patch to sustain biodiversity and ensure sustained delivery of desired ecosystem services.
