A Procedure of Compositional Data Analysis for Land Use Planning
Ecological analysis is essential for environmental assessment and planning. Based on ecological analysis we can recognize the ecological situation of the study area, and understand how environmental factors should be controlled to improve the ecological situation. Biological indicators have often been referred to in case of environmental evaluation. Various kinds of indicator organisms and methods have been proposed and practically used. For example, the simplest indicator is the number of species. But species richness can not always evaluate the quality of an area as a habitat appropriately. Especially in urban and suburban areas, species rich habitats are usually boundary habitats.
