    • ...Although the use of binary landscapes is a simplification of the complexity in habitat quality present in real landscapes (Wiegand et al. 1999; Wiegand et al. 2005), such models are useful tools for addressing conceptual questions dealing with spatial processes (With 2004; With and King 1997)...

    • ...It is necessary to test new pattern metrics and applications of them on neutral maps because testing a pattern-process hypothesis requires knowledge of the expected pattern without the process (Gardner et al. 1987; With and King 1997; Gardner and Urban 2007)...
    • ...Knowledge of the associated thresholds for landscape patterns on neutral maps with contagion may help to predict critical thresholds in many ecological phenomena in real landscapes (With and King 1997) which is a central problem in ecology (Burkett et al. 2005; Groffman et al. 2006)...
    • ...For example, With and King (1997) reported that ‘threshold values’ of P (i.e., their index values) decreased with H, occurring at P = 0.50 for H = 0.01 and at P = 0.44 for H = 0.99 for the maps that they tested...
    • ... comparison to simple random maps (Fig. 2), those index values occurred at lower values of P on maps with contagion (Fig. 3). Furthermore, with H increasing from 0.00 to 0.10, the intersections occurred at even smaller values of P for a given D, and if H became large enough for a given D, then the intersections were not obtained (Fig. 3). Our observation that index values decreased with increasing H was consistent with the findings of With and ...
