1 Dimensions of landscape diversity: ecological indicators for landscape protection planning The European Land Use Institute Sheraton Four Point Hotel Dresden, May 17-20, 2011 Session Science and Practice Supporting RRM Daniele La Rosa, Francesco Martinico, Riccardo Privitera Department of Architecture University of Catania 095/

2 Summary Background and aims of the works The study area Method Preparation of data Choice of indicators Indicators calculation Results Guidelines for the landscape planning procedure

3 Aims of the work Landscape diversity assessment as a support of a Landscape Plan at regional scale (Province of Enna, Italy) Threats to agricultural landscape - Loss of biodiversity and provided ecosystem services by different human disturbances (urban sprawl, agricultural practices, roads construction, ) - Landscape fragmentation The approach Based on a reduced set of landscape indicators Based on indirect measures (land use classes) quantitative geographically representable (maps for communication)

4 The study area (1/2) The province of Enna Surface (Km 2 ) Population (2001 census) Density (inh/ Km 2 ) Enna Sicily

5 The study area (2/2) Landscape features Water Ancipa Lake Ogliastro Lake

6 The study area (2/2) Landscape features Natural Areas Sambugheti Reserve

7 The study area (2/2) Landscape features Agriculture

8 The study area (2/2) Landscape features Archeological and historical heritage Morgantina Villa Romana del Casale Leonforte

9 Method (1/6) - overview Phases 1) Preparation of the land use dataset and definition of Land Units (LU) Geoprocessing and manual identification of LU 2) Indicators choice Literature references of most used indicators Number of patches (ND) Land-Use Richness (DIV 1) Shannon Eterogeneity (DIV 2) Dominance (DIV 3) Connectivity (C) 3) Indicators calculation By GIS

10 Method (2/6) Preparation of data set Definition of 19 Landscape Units (LU), of different dimension, by geographical omogeneity (Banko et al. 2003) LU as geographical units for landscape indicators calculation Overcoming calculation limits due to the raster approach (influence of cell boundaries in indicators scores) Diversification of diversity features inside the study area Possibility to better communicate results (mapping) to stakeholders of the planning procedures

11 Method (3/6) Available data Land Use Map, 1:5000-1: (Prato, 2008)

12 Method (4/6)- indicators choice Indicators for landscape diversity: a brief background Wide use of indicators from landscape ecology in landscape assessment, since Fragstats (McGarigal & Marks, 1995; McGarigal et al., 2002) 3 periods of landscape indicators (Rutledge, 2003): proliferation (80ies-90ies), re-evaluation (90ies-00ies), redirection (00ies - today?) High correlation of the metrics >>> (Riitters et al, 1995) because of the limited number of primary measurements (land use classes), indices derived from these measurements are very highly intercorrelated High dependence on data resolution, number of classes in available data-set Need of a reduced set of metrics based on: the aim of the work data availability Dimensions of diversity in landscape planning: Biodiversity (Schindler et al. 2008) Heterogeneity (Wrbka et al., 2004; Cadenasso et al, 2006) Connectivity (Burel and Baudry, 2005; Cadenasso et al, 2006)

13 Method (5/6)- chosen indicators Number of patches (ND) Land-Use Richness (DIV 1) # of total patches / ha: density of # of land-use classes Shannon Diversity (DIV 2) Dominance (DIV 3) Connectance (C) measure of the diversity of land-use classes, taking into account their number and dimension measure of the prevalence of particular landuse class; Measure of the connection as the number of functional joinings between patches of the corresponding patch type

14 Method (6/6) indicators calculation V-Late (Lang S., Tiede D., 2003): ArcGis 9.x.

22 Landscape Planning procedure (2/2) Guidelines for landscape planning (Nassauer & Corry, 2004; Botequilla Ahern, 2002) If a LU has a high diversity scores, landscape features inside increase their safeguard level (from level 1 to level 2; from level 2 to level 3) Getting particular indications for re-habilitation or upgrading norms (e.g. by not allowing further fragmentation) Allowing new agricultural land uses in areas with low diversity (northern grasslands or croplands) Safeguarding connections (by not allowing built up areas or linear infrastructures causing fragmentation) Increasing connections in low connected LU with restoration of patches to natural state as parts of a green network

23 Landscape Planning procedure (2/2) Guidelines for landscape planning (Nassauer & Corry, 2004; Botequilla Ahern, 2002) If a LU has a high diversity scores, landscape features inside increase their safeguard level (from level 1 to level 2; from level 2 to level 3) Getting particular indications for re-habilitation or upgrading norms (e.g. by not allowing further fragmentation) Allowing new agricultural land uses in areas with low diversity (northern grasslands or croplands) Safeguarding connections (by not allowing built up areas or linear infrastructures causing fragmentation) Increasing connections in low connected LU with restoration of patches to natural state as parts of a green network

24 Conclusion Diversity landscape indicators may play an useful role in landscape planning Landscape Units are the more suitable spatial domain for indicators calculation Agricultural landscapes present the more diversity in our study area Appropriate indications and land-use norms must be implemented In Landscape Units with high diversity (increasing safeguard levels or rehabilitation indications)
