Table 1 Main fragmentation classes derived from Vogt et al. [51]

From: Using fragmentation to assess degradation of forest edges in Democratic Republic of Congo

Inner edge Forest pixel on edge of small interior non-forest
Outer edge Pixels that are between forest and large non-forest areas
Patch Forest regions too small to contain core forest High
