lconnect: Simple Tools to Compute Landscape Connectivity Metrics

Provides functions to upload vectorial data and derive landscape connectivity metrics in habitat or matrix systems. Additionally, includes an approach to assess individual patch contribution to the overall landscape connectivity, enabling the prioritization of habitat patches. The computation of landscape connectivity and patch importance are very useful in Landscape Ecology research. The metrics available are: number of components, number of links, size of the largest component, mean size of components, class coincidence probability, landscape coincidence probability, characteristic path length, expected cluster size, area-weighted flux and integral index of connectivity.
