Computing Essential Biodiversity Variables from Global Forest Change Data.

Metrics of two Essential Biodiversity Variables: forest extents and forest fragmentation indices (O'connor et al., 2015) are computed by processing Global Forest Change data (Hansen et al., 2013) . The Forest Change Data are extracted using either Geographic Administrative Units, see , or user-defined polygons. Most of the procedures can be understood implementing two functions: FCPolygon() and EBVmetric().
