Abstract

A method of characterizing the geometry and statistical nature of vegetation patterns and for studying their fractal dimension utilizes the concept of multifractals, and is especially suited to the description of complex patterns. The author suggest an extension of the term multifractal for use in landscape ecology and coenology connected with patterns of many different kinds of points. Relationships between information-statistical functions and the fractal dimensions introduced are shown. -from Authors
