Landscape Pattern Analysis for Assessing Ecosystem Condition

Overview

This book presents a new method for assessing spatial pattern in raster land cover maps based on satellite imagery in a way that incorporates multiple pixel resolutions. This is combined with more conventional single-resolution measurements of spatial pattern and simple non-spatial land cover proportions to assess predictability of both surface water quality and ecological integrity within watersheds of the state of Pennsylvania (USA).

He holds a PhD in Quantitative Ecology, a Masters in Statistics and a Masters in Ecology.

With a cross-disciplinary background, Glen has been involved with environmental issues ranging from toxicology to landscape ecology. He has since ventured into public health and currently specializes in observational epidemiological studies using large databases and spatial analysis of environmental and public health data. As part of this activity, he teaches "GIS and Public Health" each year and serves on several interagency GIS workgroups within New York State.

G.P. Patil is know to everyone as "GP". He is Distinguished Professor of Mathematical and Environmental Statistics in the Department of Statistics at the Pennsylvania State University, and is a former Visiting Professor of Biostatistics at Harvard University in the Harvard School of Public Health.

He has a Ph.D. in Mathematics, D.Sc. in Statistics, one Honorary Degree in Biological Sciences, and another in Letters. GP is a Fellow of American Statistical Association, Fellow of American Association of Advancement of Science, Fellow of Institute of Mathematical Statistics, Elected Member of the International Statistical Institute, Founder Fellow of the National Institute of Ecology and the Society for Medical Statistics in India.

GP has been a founder of Statistical Ecology Section of International Association for Ecology and Ecological Society of America, a founder of Statistics and Environment Section of American Statistical Association, and a founder of the International Society for Risk Analysis.
