First, some authors add percentages of use dynamic degree (CLUDD). The original intention of categories without accounting for the sizes of the CLUDD was to compute the annual change percentage, categories. Second, other authors compute either which is the size of annual change expressed as a double or half of the annual change percentage. Third, percentage of the size of the spatial extent. However, the many authors interpret CLUDD as if CLUDD were the literature’s mathematical descriptions of CLUDD have annual change percentage when they use Landscape Ecology Springer Journals
