An Application of Multivariate Statistics to Land-Use Planning: Classifying Land Units into Homogeneous Zones
Abstract:A multivariate statistical procedure is presented for classifying a collection of diverse land units, encompassing an extensive wildland area, into homogeneous zones for land management planning purposes. A specific example is presented for use in fire management planning on the Angeles National Forest in southern California. Interpretations of the structure underlying geomorphic and land-use variations between drainage basins aid in differentiating the long-term fire damage-potential in forest zones. Forest Sci. 25:399-414.
