Analysis and design of multifunctional agricultural landscapes : a graph theoretic approach

A. Jellema

Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU


This thesis deals with the development of quantitative methodologies for the evaluation of landscape functions and their interactions in multifunctional agricultural landscapes. It focuses on the spatial coherence of hedgerow networks for ecological functions and landscape character for perception of landscape identity, and on their integration in a multifunctional and multiscale trade-off analysis. Graph theory provided the basis for new methodologies that are applied in this research.
