DescriptionThe Forest Inventory and Analysis unit of the Northeastern Research Station (NEFIA) is charged with inventorying and monitoring the Nation's forests. NEFIA has not gathered much information on forest fragmentation, but recent developments in computing and remote sensing technologies now make it possible to assess forest fragmentation on a regional basis. We describe several options for calculating landscape statistics and provide guidelines on their use.
