Abstract

Habitat fragmentation is in Europe a serious threat for biodiversity caused by intensive land use practices of our population. Spatial cohesion is a sustainability indicator to determine whether the size and connectivity of ecosystem networks is sufficient for sustainable biodiversity protection. This report presents the model LARCH-SCAN that calculates spatial cohesion of forest ecosystems for specific species groups that function on different spatial scales
