Temporal changes of land cover in relation to chosen environmental variables in different types of landscapes
MetadataShow full item record
Good understanding of relations between historical land cover changes and accompanying environmental components should be a starting point for landscape modeling and forecasting its future patterns. Analysis presented here focuses on the relationships between chosen environmental conditions and agricultural land cover changes in the period of over 150 years. The study area consisted of fragments of Nidziańska Basin and South Pomeranian Lake District macroregions. The land cover data was derived from a number of archival and contemporary topographical maps. Long-term changes of land cover were then related to underlying landscape elements (geological deposits and morphometric landforms). With the help of canonical analysis major correlations were identifi ed and described.
