The spatial variance of fragmentation was analysed by transforming the binary data matrix to maps indicating local fragmentation maxima and minima for the different descriptors, using a gliding box algorithm. Five fragmentation features were considered: habitat area, patch boundary length, number of patches, patch isolation and interior habitat conditions. These maps were then analysed using semivariograms. The method was applied to pine (Pinus sylvestris) forest fragments in the Campine region, Belgium.
