|Abstract: ||Landscape metrics have been widely developed over the last two decades, although the question
remains: How does landscape metrics relates with ecological processes?
One of the major recent developments in landscape metrics analysis was the third dimension
integration. Topography has an extremely important role on ecosystems function and structure,
even though the common analysis in landscape ecology only conceives planimetric surface
which leads to some erroneous results, particularly in mountain areas.
The analytical process tested patch, class and landscape metrics behavior in 11 sample areas of
100 sqkm each in several topographical conditions of Central Alentejo. It is presented the
significance analysis of the results achieved in planimetric and 3D environments.|
