Title: Modeling the spatially dynamic distribution of humans in the Oregon (USA) coast range.

Author: Kline, Jeffrey D.; Azuma, David L.; Moses, Alissa.;

Date: 2003

Source: Landscape Ecology. 18:347-361

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: A common approach to land use change analyses in multidisciplinary landscape-level studies is to delineate discrete forest and non-forest or urban and non-urban land use categories to serve as inputs into sets of integrated sub-models describing socioeconomic and ecological processes. Such discrete land use categories, however, may be inappropriate when the socioeconomic and ecological processes under study are sensitive to a range of human habitation. In this paper, we characterize the spatial dynamic distribution of humans throughout the forest landscape of western Oregon (USA).

Keywords: Ecological economics, forest/urban interface, land use change, landscape modeling, western Oregon, USA
